Laurence Cruz

Writer - Screenwriter - Visual Storyteller

​A collection of film projects—short and long, finished and still taking shape, produced and unproduced.



I am an L.A.-based visual storyteller, screenwriter and freelance writer. I write features, shorts and web series. A UK transplant, I've worked as an English language teacher in Rio de Janeiro and London, a reporter with The Associated Press in Seattle and an environmental reporter with the Statesman Journal in Salem, Oregon. In addition to  visual storytelling/screenwriting, I am a film, tech and business PR writer. I live in L.A. with my wife, Patty, and our two cats, Quinn and Orange (Orange? Don't ask). I have a BA in English from Oxford and an MA in Communications from Washington State University.
