Lucas Baiano, a filmmaker who grabbed the spotlight 4 years ago with his “movie” supporting Hillary Clinton for President. His videos are slick, highly-produced pieces of entertainment: music that builds, dizzying-special effects. And he’s 23.
After his Clinton movie, he was picked up by the Tim Pawlenty campaign, leading Stephen Colbert to say, “Wow! Tim Pawlenty may not be running for president of the United States, but he is clearly running for president of the next ‘Transformers’ movie.”
He didn’t do much for Pawlenty in the polls… but he’s still a sought after creator. Baiano then went on to be Rick Perry’s Campaign Ad Kingmaker.
How does Lucas go from Hillary Clinton to Governor Perry? Alex will ask him today on “Now” - coming up at 12pm et.
After the jump– a look at some of Lucas’ most memorable movies – I mean, ads.
