I had the privilege of interviewing this dynamic artist, delving into his journey, inspirations, and the undying dedication that fuels his cinematic endeavors.

Lyon’s journey into the world of cinema was unconventional, to say the least. “I was a professional athlete,” he confessed. His sporting ambitions took an unexpected turn when he and his father bought a professional sports team. This foray into sports management eventually led Lyon to the film industry, where he found his true calling. “It was a heck of a ride to get all the way over here to making movies,” he shared.

Lyon’s work is characterized by a deep understanding of the human condition and an unyielding pursuit of authenticity. His unique approach to filmmaking is influenced by his broad background and the mentors he’s had along the way. “I was very privileged to work on numerous sets… to have such a direct correlation with people who grew up in the industry and spent, you know, 50, 60 years in it,” he said.

In an industry that often prioritizes commercial success over originality, Lyon’s commitment to authenticity is a breath of fresh air. “Authenticity is always appreciated and valued,” he stated. His films are a testament to this belief, featuring heartfelt performances and realistic narratives that resonate with audiences.

As an independent filmmaker, Lyon understands the importance of adaptability. He embraces the ever-evolving nature of the industry and strives to stay ahead of the curve. “You have to look at how the entire industry is reacting to certain things,” he explained. This adaptability extends to his creative process as well, where he emphasizes the importance of understanding and connecting with the people he collaborates with.

Lyon’s dedication to his craft is not just limited to his creative process. He is equally passionate about promoting his films and building his brand. “Our job is to build our brand,” he said. Recognizing the power of word-of-mouth promotion, he encourages his fans to share his work and help spread the word about his films.

Despite the challenges that come with being an independent filmmaker, Lyon remains undeterred. His future plans include an upcoming film titled “Killer Keg,” which promises to be another exciting addition to his creative portfolio. “Our editing process is upwards of, you know, maybe a couple of years,” he revealed, highlighting the meticulous attention to detail that goes into each of his projects.

Throughout our conversation, Lyon’s passion for filmmaking was palpable. His dedication to his craft, his commitment to authenticity, and his adaptability in the face of industry changes make him a force to be reckoned with in the world of independent filmmaking.

As our interview drew to a close, Lyon left us with a powerful sentiment. “Just go do what they did. Be willing to put in that effort and be disciplined to get up every day and keep working towards it,” he said. It’s a testament to his work ethic and a testament to the spirit that fuels his cinematic journey.

In a world often captivated by blockbuster hits and big-name celebrities, Brad Leo Lyon is a reminder of the power of independent filmmaking.
