Lucas Mireles
Lucas Mireles (Writer/Director) is a native Texan and former shot putter for the University of Houston and the Mexican National Junior Olympic team. He received his BA and MA degrees from Houston in 2006 and 2010. His master’s thesis, Cartoon Network’s Naughty Sister Station: Innovations of the Adult Swim Network in American Late Night Television Programming, is a current snapshot of adult themes in American television animation.

Lucas is currently enrolled in the MFA Film Directing program at UCLA. His first dramatic short, Hijo de mi Madre (A Mother’s Son), made its world premiere at the Slamdance 2011 film festival. Following this was his comedic short, Love Analysis, an official selection of SXSW 2011.

Lucas wrote and directed Playtime (Spielzeit), which will have its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Inspired by Billy Wilder and Curt Siodmack’s classic silent film People On Sunday (Menschen am Sonntag), Playtime was created as part of a two-month cultural collaboration initiative between UCLA and the Internationale Filmschule Köln.

Currently, Lucas is in post-production on his second requisite film work entitled Range Junkies, a film that can simply be described as “a love story in a gun-range”. He is also in preproduction on UCLA’s first 3D live action film.
