ANTHONY HADEN SALERNO writer, director, producer, editor, music, sound design.

ANTHONY HADEN SALERNO is grateful for the amazing experience of creating this work with such talented and generous artists and technicians, without whom LAPSE could not have been possible.

Pre-production began in early 2011, with principal photography getting off the ground in late June of that same year, wrapping in the fall. Post production slowly got moving in the cold days of January 2012 and continued through sound mixing and scoring in the early summer, making LAPSE ready for festival submissions in fall 2012. Check out more about Anthony's road to LAPSE in Storyteller's Story.



 PETER GANIM as Man in "Lapse".  Producer.

PETER GANIM as Man in "Lapse".  Producer.

PETER GANIM (as MAN, Producer) is an American actor of Slovak, Syrian, and Lebanese ancestry. On the stage, he has appeared to award-winning acclaim in both classical and contemporary roles; from Shakespeare, Shaw, Ibsen, and Molière to Churchill, Fornes, Fraser, and Schenkkan; and under the direction of innovators such as Joseph Chaikin, Nancy Keystone, Anders Cato, and Chris Coleman. He is the co-founder of Théâtre du Rêve, a French-language acting company, and for five years served as the Artistic Associate and head of the Acting Program at Actor's Express in Atlanta, Georgia. While he was doing his undergraduate work, he met Joseph Papp, founder and Artistic Director of the New York Shakespeare Festival, who encouraged him to move to Manhattan. He did not follow this advice for 15 years, but since he did, he has racked up his requisite guest shots on "Law & Order" (the original and "Criminal Intent"), the soaps when they were still alive and shooting in New York (a recurring role on ABC's "One Life to Live"), as well as featured roles in several independent films, ( notably this tender, troubled man in Anthony Haden Salerno's "Lapse"). In 2003, he appeared Off-Broadway alongside Tony Randall in Luigi Pirandello's "Right You Are!" for the National Actors Theatre, Mr. Randall's final production with the beloved company he founded. Since then, Mr. Ganim has been featured with the Ballet Hispanico, in LAByrinth Theatre Company's BARNSeries, and at New York Theatre Workshop with Noor Theatre, a home for artists of Middle Eastern descent. He is much more hilarious than the accompanying photo may suggest.

 CHRISTOPHER CAMP Cinematographer.

CHRISTOPHER CAMP Cinematographer.

CHRISTOPHER CAMP (Cinematographer) was born and raised in Washington Heights, New York City. In college studying audio, he picked up a video camera to document his friends' live music performances. This progressed into music videos and his first short film documenting a road trip of some fellow artists heading from New York to North Carolina for a show. While dating a Spanish girl in college, Christopher fell in love with directors of photography Rodrigo Prieto (ASC, AMC) and José Luis Alcaine. He has since began studying photography and cinematography. After meeting director Anthony Haden Salerno on the set of "Ella's Lament" they decided to collaborate in the future. "Lapse" is that collaboration. Christopher recently took top prize at this year's Audio Publishers Association contest for a short advertisement.
