WK Speaker Series: Lance Bangs
Lance Bangs — a self-taught filmmaker whose brilliant career in cinematography should be an inspiration to all talented do-it-yourselfers — came to show us what he’s about. His work, which spans from music videos for artists like the Shins and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to a Titanium Lion winning campaign for Volvo, was inspirational in that it was completely organic and unforced. It was art. He addressed the importance of the ability to say “no” to people, how negative comments with no solution were completely unhelpful and how you need to learn to trust yourself (or just be loathing enough of other people to not trust them).
