Lisa M. Hansen
|Other names||L.M. Hansen
|Occupation||Film producer, actor, director and screenwriter|
Lisa M. Hansen is an American film producer, production manager, actor, director, writer, and craft service person. She has worked in various genres, including thriller, action, drama, and science fiction. She also frequently makes cameos in the movies she's involved with.
Lisa Hansen grew up in Chicago, Illinois.
In 1981, Hansen was hired by Chicago Teleproductions. In 1982, she was recruited by Paul Hertzberg, moving to Los Angeles with him to do sales for a new independent film studio CineTel Films. Within a year, Hansen was promoted to vice president and then, the following year, to executive vice president.
In the early 1980s, Hansen and Hertzberg went to Cannes for the first time, attending would later become MIPCOM. During the festival, the two CineTel executives found themselves with entertainment shows "that we literally couldn't give away" with the exception of Hansen's film acquisition The Courier of Death, which sold out quickly; observing Hansen's success, CineTel Films switched its business focus from television programming to feature film production—a turning point in the company's history.
She is currently still the president of CineTel Pictures, Inc. and executive vice president of CineTel Films, Inc.
