Lance Gibson has been in the film industry for over 20 years. In 1996, shortly after attending New York University Film School, Lance founded The Diamond Film Company (DFC). From 2000 to 2002, Diamond Film’s exposure grew as Lance was commissioned by Jive/Verity Records to create, produce and direct commercials for several of their Grammy, Dove and Soul Train Award winning artists. He was also tapped by A Real Madhouse Entertainment, in conjunction with HBO, to produce and direct Electronic Press Kits (EPKs) for the Former Professional Super Bantamweight Boxer Junior Jones and by the United Negro College Fund for Lou Rawls.
As Lance’s publicity grew, so did DFC. In 2002, he was able to hire some of the most brilliant and creative talent of the 21st century which led to the production of numerous film projects for a full roster of clients including BET, Sickle Cell/Thalassemial, NBC Sports, United Negro College Fund, Jive Records, Weekend Vibe, Walk About America, HBO Sports, Telemundo, and more.
In 2007 Lance wrote, directed and produced a documentary titled All in the Name of God. He partnered with the Black African-American Christian Counseling (BAACC – a division of the American Association of Christian Counselors - AACC) to add a therapeutic component for those who were victims of the type of abuse featured in the film. This production was quickly followed by a short film titled Who’s That Woman in my Bed? Both films were critical successes and garnered him several Film Festival Awards around the country and in London including five awards for Best Documentary, two for Best Short Film and several honorable mentions.
In addition to full and demanding schedule as the President of Diamond Film Company, Lance also serves on the Board of Directors for two organizations and is the Key Director of HamptonRoads to Hollywood, which is a grass roots film organization.
Besides his extensive knowledge of the film industry, Lance also has formal training in the following: FCP Suite; Adobe Creative Suite; fiber splicing; switching; data transmission facilities such as 1G and 10G native Ethernet and Sonet; wireless technologies; digital communications; various operating systems and applications; in the telecom industry.
