About the Filmmaker
Justin S. Lee
Justin S. Lee is a Chinese-American filmmaker currently getting his MFA at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. His storytelling roots began at an early age in childhood, when he grew up in the foreign cityscape of Taipei, Taiwan. Unable to speak its language, he took solace in watching movies, and writing soon became his expressive outlet.
Eventually, he moved to California as a teenager and decided to become a filmmaker. He made movies on the side while studying business at UC Berkeley, and spent a year between schools working in the industry before enrolling in USC’s film program. Since then, his shorts have each received distribution, won awards, and screened in prominent film festivals around the world.
The latest project he directed, “Drone,” earned him a spot as a HBO Project Greenlight Quarterfinalist and stars Daniel Sharman (“Teen Wolf”) and Michael Trucco (“Battlestar Galactica”). He is now focused on writing screenplays, and is currently co-directing the feature film “Actors Anonymous,” starring a high-profile cast that includes Oscar-nominated actors Eric Roberts and James Franco, who is also executive producer.
