Creative Fugitives is ideation/content creation and indie production studio founded by Writer/Director/Producer/Editor hyphenate Warren Lam. He has your basic Asian American origin story: Born and raised in the US with immigrant parents, i.e., go get us some A plus plus pluses – go be a doctor/lawyer/engineer – pick one better yet make us proud and be all three then go marry a nice Asian woman who is also doctor/lawyer/engineer hopefully is all three.
Here’s where things get interesting: After graduating college he embraced his young rebellious mentality and creative inclinations and moved to NY to be an advertising copywriter. That was the beginning of the journey, making pit stops at various ad agencies across the country, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, working on a variety of accounts, developing a reputation as an unconventional disruptor. He embraced new digital filmmaking tech and made a digital web series , “The Wendy Channel.”
After his father passed away, he moved to LA and somehow made it into this tough entertainment industry with very few industry connections.. He also started Creative Fugitives, a place to incubate new content. He wrote everything from features, original series, developed and pitched reality shows and documentaries, invented a new approach to transmedia storytelling, He continues to be curious about pretty much everything, and is constantly reminded that the journey is the destination. And lucky, that journey is also made up of the many people you get to meet and work with along the way.
