Welcome to LIONS AND LAMBS, a full-length feature film to be shot 100% in the great state of Georgia in the spring of 2023. We are Travis Conover and Matthew Wallace. Between the two of us, we have nearly 30 years combined experience in the film industry as actors, writers, directors and producers.
At its core, LIONS AND LAMBS is a vigilante, buddy-cop action film. It will have exciting car & foot chases, hard-hitting, action-packed fight sequences, and a strong dose of good-ole fashioned REVENGE!
Studies show that movies that do not include gratuitous violence and sex actually have a much broader appeal to audiences, so we will be aiming for a PG-13 rating. It will feel like a blockbuster of the late 90’s early 2000’s but with a twist of true-to-life storytelling.
Travis started his performance career touring with the extreme martial arts demo team Team Pil-Sung under the leadership of Master Adam Grogin. He made his on-screen acting debut, co-starring in The Trial of Everett Mann which won several awards throughout some of the largest film festivals in the world including the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Shortly after Travis booked and acting and producing role in The Penitent Thief which hit theaters during easter season of 2020. During Travis's career he has written and produced several shorts and even features. Currently Travis is in talks with a major studio and director to star in his newest Action Adventure script.
