My name is Laz Rojas, and I'm an actor/writer/filmmaker. I'm also an artist/cartoonist.
And I've been known to dabble in creating maps and mods for various computer games
as well. To see examples of my work in these fields, please visit each category.


"Impressive. Shades of Orson Welles!"
-- Jelly Helm, Executive Creative Director, Wieden+Kennedy ad agency

"Laz Rojas is a special genius. In all the years I've been lucky
to be part of a community of filmlovers dedicated to finding
and discovering the strange and unusual, from all corners of
the world...few have matched the charm and independent
virtuosity of Laz Rojas. Watching his acting reel, re-enacting
scenes from his own screenplays, playing every part, male or
female, young or old... the technical virtuosity and ingenuity
is astonishing. He is maybe my favorite 'outsider' filmmaker."
-- Hadrian Belove, Head Programmer, The Cinefamily

"The cinema's truest auteur... This is cinema and life
and loneliness and longing and joy and sorrow
and a thousand freaking amazing wigs..."
-- Spencer Parsons, Associate Professor, Northwestern University

"Laz Rojas is a genius. On YouTube, he has a bunch of clips
from this incredible demo tape... I really can’t believe how
multi-talented this guy is!! It’s so exciting!"
-- Guthrie Lonergan, new media artist, on Nasty Nets

"LAZ ROJAS - Home made, one man Hollywood.
His YouTube vids are mind blowing..."
-- Guthrie Lonergan again, on The Year In The Internet 2006

"He epitomizes, to me, a true indie filmmaker... I love this man,
simply because he is not afraid to do what he dreams."
-- Daniela Capistrano, Associate Producer, MTV News

"Multi-faceted showcase of a multi-talented individual...
Astonishing ability to convincingly convey a seemingly endless
roster of unique characters of all ages, races and sexes...
Be prepared to feel puny, or at least dull, by comparison."
-- Will Viharo, Placevine Studios

"The highlight of the event had to be watching the Laz Rojas
clips up on a big screen, in the context of art rather than in the
context of silly Youtube craziness. He really did create something
wholly unique and uniquely strange in a way that a more
deliberate or deliberately ironic artist never would have."
-- Bryan Poyser, board member, Cinematexas film festival

"Laz Rojas puts on a one man show. Hollywood, why do you
keep hiring Scarlett Johansson when you could have Laz?"
-- Michael Connor, Head of Exhibitions, British Film Institute

"This man is the Cindy Sherman of self-made video."
-- Bryan Poyser again

"Wow, this guy is amazing."
-- Elizabeth Abrams, founding member, Austin Video Bee

"genius. no joke."
-- Cathy Shive, Mac software engineer and artist, on Del.icio.us
