Lukas has been directing since 2006 when he began work on his first doc feature, The Medicine Game, which went on to air nationally on PBS and garner acclaim on the festival circuit. His commercial career started as a camera op and DP, including spots for Under Armor and branded content for Duracell, Vans, Nike, Omega watches, among others.
Lukas loves having the privilege to document the lives and share the experiences of a wide range of people. He tries to find inspiration in anyone who is living to better themselves and those around them. He has a true respect for the documentarian. Striving to create beautiful images is imperative, but Lukas believes that it’s often best to let authentic moments happen without the baggage that comes with large sets and crews. His end goal is always to capture a real moment in the most cinematic way possible — that’s the holy grail.
