Max Lanman is a Writer and Director (mainly) but also a former ad man, closet musician, and recovering adrenaline junkie.

In 2010, Max founded Leão, a creative advertising agency and production company. Leão conceptualized and produced traditional commercials, music videos, web videos, viral videos, animation, explainer videos, you name it. Their MO was to produce unique and original adverts at the highest level of quality and at a fraction of the price and speed.  Max served primarily as Creative Director, but was hands on as the Director, Copywriter, and Producer on every project.  His tenacity and creativity helped him win over a host of clients including Microsoft, Häagen-Dazs, Mozilla, UMG, and EMI to name a few. His work was featured on CNN, NBC, ABC, BBC, MTV, MSNBC, Huffington Post, TIME, TechCrunch, and more.
