Lenski won an MTV Video Music Award for his direction of Fall Out Boy's "Sugar, We're Goin' Down" video. His short film Meaning Of Robots was officially accepted in the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Lenski acted and co-produced the 2004 feature film 'Point & Shoot' "," directed by Shawn Regruto. Lenski's 2004 viral campaign, "F*ck New York," parodied the Republican Presidential Convention, which took place in New York City.
