Considered to be one of the leading voices in 21st Century storytelling, Lance Weiler has been involved in some of the most innovative projects in the space (Pandemic 1.0, Bear71, Collapsus, Lyka’s Adventure and Wish for the Future).
An alumni of the Sundance Screenwriting Lab, he is recognized as a pioneer because of the way he mixes storytelling and technology. WIRED magazine named him “one of 25 people helping to re-invent entertainment and change the face of Hollywood.” Always interested in experimenting with new ways to tell stories and engage audiences, Lance has designed experiences that have reached millions of people via theaters, mobile devices and online. In recognition of these storytelling innovations, Businessweek named Lance “One of the 18 Who Changed Hollywood.”
Lance sits on two World Economic Forum steering committees; one focused on the Future of Content Creation and the other examines the role of Digital Media in Shaping Culture and Governance. Most recently, Good magazine named Lance one of their GOOD 100, a gathering of people inspiring and moving the world forward in 2013.
Later this fall his newest project a collaboration with David Cronenberg, TIFF and the CFC Media Lab entitled Body/Mind/Change, will kick off a global tour. Additionally, Lance has provided creative services to clients such as; the Coca Cola Company, Twitter, the Chernin Group, Samsung, Ubisoft, Penguin Books, CAA, Ogilvy, McCann-Erickson, Dorga5, Summit Entertainment and Ebay.
His new book Building Storyworlds: the art, craft & biz of storytelling in 21c is based on a course that he teaches at Columbia University on the future of storytelling.
