Writer/Producer Ron Lang Lends Expertise to Local Filmmakers

When The Broward Alliance Film Commission asked noted Writer/Producer Ron Lang to help with the goal of supporting our local independent filmmakers he immediately agreed. Lang worked with commission staff to coordinate a practical workshop on screenwriting by reviewing filmmakers’ clips that exhibited dialog of produced work. The format of the workshop, held July 28, was to examined each clip and discuss how to improve the writing for greater impact.

Born in Hollywood, Florida, Lang’s most notable success is the movie All About the Benjamins, a feature film he wrote and executive produced starring Ice Cube and Mike Epps. New Line Cinema released the film in 2002 and the gross box office receipts totaled $26 million. Lang is in the final stages of developing his next film, Rock the Cash Bar that he hopes to film in South Florida.

Lang got the interest and passion to become a filmmaker after seeing the potential of South Florida’s growth in the motion picture industry, not just as a shooting location but also as a place to develop and finance films. He worked as an extra on a number of movies in South Florida to learn the business. He saw the potential of South Florida talent behind the scenes, as well as in front of the camera. It wasn’t until being on the set of the movie Any Given Sunday, starring Al Pacino and Jamie Foxx that he decided to take a journey to Hollywood, California to represent South Florida as a filmmaker.

Lang started his networking strategy hours after landing on the west coast at Los Angeles and never looked back. Needless to say he represented our region well and brought South Florida the hit movie All About the Benjamins, spending $10 million on production in Miami and Hollywood.
