Empty Stage


|Actor|Director|Writer|Voiceover Artist|

Lisa Datz is a bicoastal, critically acclaimed actor, director, writer, and voiceover artist. She grew up in the midwest, making a splash on Broadway and on the big screen at a young age. Over the pandemic, Lisa has used this time to hone her directing & writing skills, creating music videos with music producer Carson Rammelt of SIXFOOTFIVE Productions, and on her short film/proof of concept pilot LIFE OF RILEY, written & directed by Lisa, and produced by Datz a Wrap, LLC in association with Intent Entertainment. After a year + long pandemic delay, it triumphantly received a red carpet wrap celebration in Los Angeles and was completed in March of 2022. A former competitive figure skater and current equestrian, when Lisa's not acting & directing, you'll find her riding, skating, hip hop dancing, and traveling the globe, surrounded by her close family & friends.

It's nice to be back in person, isn't it?

LIFE OF RILEY is a classic love story with a modern and surprising twist. It centers around Riley, an American woman haunted by her past as she falls in love with a successful Dominican architect, who bares his own scars from cultural bias; a seemingly innocent event threatens to pull apart the foundation of their relationship on their two year anniversary, in which things are not always as they seem.

Trailer - short film/proof of concept

"A multicultural love story in a complicated modern world."
