Playwright, dramaturg, and indie film writer and producer, Lamont Wheeler, is one such authentic and astute creative soul on that path to creative success. As is the story with most creative, purpose-driven geniuses, Lamont Wheeler’s love for conceptualizing, creating, orchestrating, and promoting his productions started at a very early age. While other kids in his neighborhood were spending hours trying to reach the next level on their favorite video game, Wheeler was creating characters, weaving plots, and writing story lines for his plays and brainstorming ideas for his indie films.
His unbridled enthusiasm and passion for the creative view inspired many of his peers to put down the remote and pick up a pen or a camera; soon he was collaborating with, teaching, assisting, and inspiring others. As the owner of Wisdom Vision Productions a creative company that produces plays, films, and documentaries, Wheeler’s earned the reputation for being the community’s creative genius with a positive message to share.
Ever welcoming chances to learn, share, and expand his craft, Wheeler didn't hesitate to visit California when the opportunity arose. With gumption in his stride, faith in his heart, and a portfolio of projects in tow, Wheeler set his compass to San Diego for a season to produce one of his plays. Once there, he traversed the town and successfully secured a stage for his production, hired the actors, directed the performance, and promoted the event. Wheeler’s venture to California for a few months was a success not only because it affirmed his ability to orchestrate and produce a production in previously-uncharted waters, but also because he was able to spend time exploring the sites and sounds of a burgeoning city.
