Actor, screenwriter, filmmaker, artist, cartoonist, human chameleon, master of disguise, one-man movie studio, creative genius.
Born and raised in New York City, Laz Rojas is a multi-talented actor, writer, and filmmaker, as well as an artist and cartoonist. His one-man showcase -- a production written, directed, produced, and edited entirely by him, and in which he portrays over a hundred different characters in more than fifty scenes -- has been hailed as a tour-de-force and a work of genius, and portions of it were included in the 2008 Sony Pictures release "Pineapple Express".
Mr. Rojas can do it all, from acting to writing to directing to editing, and he has been called a one-man movie studio and a creative powerhouse. As an actor, he is fully adept at both comedy and drama and has a chameleon-like ability to transform himself into and portray any character. As a writer, he is just as versatile, having written a variety of screenplays of multiple genres. As a filmmaker, he has an auteur-like command of every aspect of a production, from characters to costumes to sets. Such is his all-encompassing vision that Jelly Helm, former Executive Creative Director at the Wieden+Kennedy ad agency, has compared him to Orson Welles because of his multiple skills and abilities both in front of and behind the camera.
