Lee Ross began his career as a mime in front of the Metropolitan Museum on fifth Avenue before moving to Paris for further movement theater studies, eventually landing him the lead clown role in Cirque du Soleil’s hit show Saltimbanco.
As a screen writer Lee’s first feature went to Sundance with Maria Bello & Jason Patric in 2008, directed by Emmy winner of HBO Chernobyl. Since then Lee has written and produced a half dozen award winning short films as well as his second feature, a dark comedy, Benjamin Troubles.
Lee moved to Salida three years ago and loves the idea of filmmaking within Chaffee County – developing a new Salida repertory theater company, and has taught authentic writing and screenwriting here in town with Colorado Mountain College.
