Angeles-based filmmaker who bleeds his Michigan roots.
In his latest project, he teamed up with pro skater and filmmaker Steve Berra to produce the above mentioned skateboarding documentary, PUSH. The PUSH team traveled the world filming and creating the 48-episode series with a full-length piece set to air on NBC October 3rd, 2015 at 4pm EST. Lije, spending his whole life on a skateboard, has found an intersection of life and work with PUSH that will be forever special to him.
In 2015, Lije also produced two narrative feature films, Those Left Behind (Daphne Zuniga, Jack Griffo) and Hickey (Troy Doherty, Tiny Lister), currently in post production, as well as ToY (Briana Evigan, Matt O'Leary) and This Isn't Funny (Anthony LaPaglia, Danielle Panabaker), both of which are in different stages of distribution.
Lije continues to promote his anti-bullying film, Belong, at film festivals and on Vimeo as a "Staff Pick".
Lije has collaborated with Studio Unknown on every single project listed above. He says, "I couldn't imagine doing a project without them."
