While studying acting at HB Studios in NY, he was fortunate to be accepted in the late Jill Clayburgh's master class "Working on/off camera". Lou learned so much with Jill he asked her if she would continue coaching him after the class ended and she graciously accepted.
Lou is also a great admirer of Clint Eastwood both in front and behind the camera.
Today Lou looks for scripts that encompass originality, something he says seems harder to find these days.
Lou Co-Stars with Guile Branco in Guile's So Far. On working with Guile in the project Lou notes:
"Guile proves over and over how talented and committed he is to his work and his passion. So Far is a project that started in Guile’s mind over 20 years ago and it entails very personal aspects of his life from when he was young to today.
Before Guile came to America, he not only loved stage and screen, but also was born with natural talents such as drawing/illustration and music.
Recently Guile has been going back to his roots by writing and developing songs one of which is called So Far. When he was listening to the track at the studio, it was then he imagined that dream of his creating an action drama, but as Guile does, with a twist.
He was able to incorporate his song, his illustrating prowess along with a perfect action hero story. This story is complete with car chases, machine guns, ninja’s and bi-planes oh yeah and torture.

I’m so honored to be a part of this project and look forward to working with him on the next two projects (the prequel and sequel) which by the way, he already has it all in his head! He just needs to get that ole pencil out and start creating the magic that he does so well . . . "
So Far is scheduled to be released online on VEVO and YOUTUBE on June 17th. It has also been submitted for consideration to a number of festivals taking place later this year.
Announcements about festival selections and screening dates / times will be announced soon.
