behind the camera

These are stories that inspire, uplift, challenge, and most of all keep it real.

“We love collaborating on mission-driven projects that focus on social justice, mental health, gender equality, and making Milwaukee a more equitable place to live for everyone.”

(she/her)

Laura Dyan Kezman is the owner and director of LionArt. She is most in her element while tucked awkwardly in a corner somewhere capturing life unfolding with her camera.

She has worked for such outlets as National Geographic, Al Jazeera English, Discovery, and created an expansive library of documentary content while directing the video department at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee for five years prior to starting LionArt. She co-directed the feature documentary Invisible Lines, which premiered at the Milwaukee Film Festival in 2018, and is currently in production on two forthcoming features.

She is currently on the board of the Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance and is acutely aware of the need for more women and people of color to fill roles in the filmmaking world. She is working to create that platform through LionArt.
