MICHAEL LEHMANN (Director) made an auspicious feature film
directorial debut with the acclaimed black comedy "Heathers,"
starring Christian Slater and Winona Ryder.
A San Francisco native, Lehmann studied art at the University
of California at Berkeley and went on to receive a degree in philosophy
from Columbia University.
Lehmann worked with Francis Ford Coppola at Zoetrope Studios,
supervising experimental video systems used in the films "One
From the Heart," "Rumble Fish" and "The Outsiders."
He then studied filmmaking at the University of Southern California,
receiving his degree in 1985.
While attending USC Lehmann directed the short films "Beaver
Gets a Boner," and for "Saturday Night Live," "Ed's
Secret Life." He received considerable industry attention
for both shorts leading to a deal at New World Pictures where
he developed "Heathers."
Following this, Lehmann cowrote and directed "Meet
the Applegates." He also directed "Hudson Hawk,"
"Airheads" and last year's hit "The Truth About
Cats and Dogs."
