Lukas Persson -- Writer / Producer
Lukas has been writing since he was a fucking bean sprout; starting with short stories, then poetry, he quickly advanced towards the dramatic with his first feature script at a tender age, after seeing the Terry Gilliam film, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen," which led to an obsession with all things "Monty Python," "Ripping Yarns" and "Faulty Towers." Working on multiple comedy skits and shorts, Lukas started gravitating towards horror, finding the humor much more interesting, when submerged within the macabre. He wrote, directed and cut two short films back to back, "This Girl's Gun" and "The Candy Striper," with the former winning a best actress award for Erin Brown, at the Pollygrind Underground Film Festival in Las Vegas. And still his influences grew and shifted, from the goofy comedies of the 80s, to the over-the-top, Woo-ping style Kung Fu to the sweeping Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns, but it wasn't until his obsession with classic pulp, such as Jim Thompson, Fredric Brown, Dashiell Hammett, and Cornell Woolrich, that he became fascinated with dialog and its rhythm. And thus, all the pieces came together, and DOSEY was born.
