Heather Lenz is passionate about documentaries and biography films. She loves stories about people with creative minds who have not walked the beaten path (such as artist Yayoi Kusama.) In addition to artists and designers, Lenz is also interested in people such as scientists, environmentalists and inventors who push boundaries and blaze new paths. Her first short documentary about a bicycle inventor, Back to Back, was nominated for a Student Academy Award. Lenz has written and lectured about Kusama (Issue 22 of the London based Specialten magazine includes an article about Kusama written by Lenz titled, "Connecting the Dots: Yayoi Kusama's Anti-War Art.") Since earning her MFA in Cinematic Arts from USC, Lenz has worked on film and television projects in various roles including as a researcher on programs for The History Channel and Food Network and as an Associate Producer for a PBS series about the environment.
