Lance has a background in martial arts and free running (AKA “parkour”)—not exactly the background most filmmakers come from unless you are Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, or Lance Clarke.

Lance found his way into the film and television industry performing stunts with an elite parkour troupe at high profile events such as the Toronto International Film Festival and The Singing Christmas Tree in Edmonton. He was also featured in a commercial for ATB Financial.

He’s travelled the globe and has mentored under some of the best stunt performers in the world such as Marvin Ross (Captain America: Civil War), Travis Wong (Transformers, Call of Duty, Pacific Rim, Doctor Strange, Jungle Book), and Chase Armitage (Harry Potter).

In 2017, he won second prize in WFPF’s The Jump Off — an annual international parkour competition held in Las Vegas.

Being a millenial, Lance inevitably started to create his own personal videos for social media. He choreographed his own fight sequences, re-created scenes from movies like John Wick, Marvel, Power Rangers, and experimented with visual effects.

His passion for business is what attracted us to him. Previous to him joining the team at Kryton, Lance was an Operations Manager at a successful Parkour gym in Edmonton. He helped build the business from scratch through to the opening of two additional locations around the city. The company still sees success to this day.

Fourteen foot tumbles on a regular basis eventually resulted in sore knees. With an eye for the future, Lance decided to redirect his focus towards film in a full-time capacity; unfortunately, that won’t stop him from continuing to climb higher and higher—the difference is he won’t be coming down anytime soon!
