Emmy award winning editor, independent director and passionate photographer Lance Cain's most recent film “A Few Days After” debuted at the 2011 Ghost Shadows art exhibition at Dada Post Gallery in Berlin.  The title refers to the shadows of the World Trade Center, which fell across the Tribeca neighborhood where Lance and six other artists lived and worked prior and during that tragic day

Lance began his career as a commercial editor at Version-2 Editorial and then as a creative director with Third Element Productions and JP Studios.  During this period he produced and directed dozens of commercial spots and music videos for Capital, Select and Tommy Boy Records.  In the early 2000s Cain made his initial foray into producing online digital content, joining forces with Time Inc. Studios, where he produced and edited doc webisodes for Loreal, Essence Magazine and WebMD.   He also continued acting as a creative director for an array of companies that included; Dogmatic Productions, TAG Creative, The Sundance Channel and MH3 Productions. 

In 2008 Cain co-created and directed the web series “New York Verité”, a mélange of downtown theater, cinema verite and reality TV, digitally filmed before a live studio audience.

Cain’s first major photo exhibition “The Corner Of Harlemstraat and St Germain” (2009) opened at the Soho Creative Gallery and exhibited at Axis Gallery in New York City. The show featured a collection of photos juxtaposing images of Parisian cafés with Amsterdam coffee-shops.

After a decade of operating in Tribeca, NY in 2011 he moved operations of his digital production company New Renaissance Productions, specializing in narrative, documentary and experimental digital filmmaking, to the revitalized art scene of Harlem, NYC on the cusp of its own "new" renaissance.  

Lance continues to produce and direct independent films and to work in television as an editor and story-producer for companies like HGTV, VH1 and most recently on The Rachel Zoe Project for Bravo TV.  He also continues to enjoys his teaching post as an adjunct professor and Thesis Advisor at his alma mata, The School of Visual Arts.
