Melissa Lamming, Co-Creator of World Changers, Senior Producer & Director
Melissa Lamming has been involved in acting and filmmaking since an early age, studying with experts in San Francisco and Los Angeles. As a child, she was the Production Assistant for a feature, Bernal Town, which was later shown in San Francisco festivals. Once she turned 18 she started doing feature films, television, and more independent films. She was on both sides of the camera and fell in love with the entire process.
After her daughter was born, she switched gears a bit and got into broadcasting. At KTSF-TV she was in charge of the station’s infomercial department. In 2009, she produced a popular online radio show and an innovative online reality show called Conscious Livelihood, which was on the cutting edge of internet broadcasting.
She developed a love of multiplatform storytelling — the story is always in motion and pulls the audience in, whether fiction or non-fiction. In January of 2013 she joined the TransmediaSF team, and continues to work with them on a regular basis. Her Production Company, Bianco Productions, is in pre-production for a celebrity interview style webseries — an inspiring show with a strong transmedia element to get viewers really engaged and excited.
Melissa is a Film Producer for the Billions Rising Self-Reliance Foundation. She and Anita Casalina together created “Billions Rising, Out of Poverty” and is now a prominent Producer for the weekly television show it’s branding.
