Lee Chavis' professional writing career began with his first novel A Dance in Paradise, published in 2010 by Amazon.
Chavis’ interest in entertaining audiences led him to filmmaking. Shortly after A Dance in Paradise was released, Chavis wrote, directed and produced the novel's trailer now featured on YouTube and Vimeo.
Around the summer of 2012, he began collaborating with Karim Lounes on his first feature film, The Last Immortal, about a warlock who seeks revenge against a chemist after an ancient ritual goes awry. In 2017, he completed The War Necklace with Conchita Franco Serri, about love, betrayal and a family divided during the Venezuelan wars of independence.
His latest script, Never Again with George Kottaridis, centers around a covert agent seeking justice for the murders of his parents and wife that eventually exposes the underbelly of an international human trafficking and drug cartel operation. All three projects are currently in development.
Chavis recently signed with Harris Management, a Los Angeles-based talent management company focused on a select group of actors, directors, writers and recording artists. Thereafter, the company issued a press release saying, “[Lee Chavis’] scripts have garnered the attention of international film developers and Hollywood players and he is now ready to see the words moved to the big screen. Thus his decision to join forces with Harris Management.”
Chavis responded, "I am honored to have been accepted by the team of Harris Management. As a screenwriter, you continuously face uncertainty and countless disappointments while looking for that big break in your career. It is comforting to know that someone like Earnest Harris, with his expertise and guidance in moving many mountains throughout his many years of being in the movie business, has enough faith in my writing ability to advance my projects towards the big screen. I am thrilled to no end."
