About Christopher Lazar

Christopher Lazar

Chris made the leap from the rolling mountains of Vancouver to the vaulting urban jungle of Toronto to pursue a career making films in 2007.

Since then, Chris has cultivated a diverse body of work that explores mediums and genres of all forms including commercials, music videos, web series, short films and documentaries. His work has been broadcast on CBC, Much Music, CMT, Bravo, Funny or Die, YouTube, Vimeo and iTunes.

In January 2014, Chris released his first feature-length documentary URBNET LIVE: featuring Canadian hip-hop artists Moka Only, D-Sisive, DL Incognito, Kae Sun, Wordburglar, Elaquent and Animal Nation.

Later that year, Chris began production on Rude Canadians, a documentary about stand-up comedy and the legal boarders imposed on free speech in Canada. The film is still in production and should see a release date in 2017.

As a result, Chris’s approach to storytelling has been shaped by the drama and excitement that reality-based content has to offer. Not to be confined by any genre, Chris’s goal is to engage audiences with real emotional experiences in every market from web-based media, advertisements and music videos, to documentaries, television and feature films.
