Correspondent for The Feed (SBS2)

Lawrence also appears on SBS2′s  The Feed as a guest reporter. The Feed is a news/technology/culture show on weeknights 7:30pm on SBS2.

 

 

Some stories required him to “immerse” himself into a subculture. For example, Lawrence armed himself with a foam rubber sword and GoPro camera and go into battle against 300 Live Action Role Players in a forest for a story about LARPing.

Hottest 100 Magic

January is Triple J Hottest 100 month when the national radio station asks the country to vote for their favourite songs and broadcasts the big countdown on Australia Day. It’s dubbed the world’s biggest musical democracy!

 

The theme this year is Magic, so they asked obsessive magic-tragic Lawrence Leung to direct a series of cunning and tricky web videos to help encourage voting and pop a few eyeballs.

 

 

Lawrence teamed up with his old magic buddy from Uni days, the world championship award-winning illusionist Simon Coronel to conjure up a series of mind-bending videos.

 

 

The videos feature jaw-dropping “right-under-your-nose” sleight of hand magic - WITHOUT any sneaky CGI or post-production FX trickery and were heavily featured on triplej’s online channels and Hottest 100 voting campaign.

Lawrence Leung’s Choose Your Own Adventure

 

Nominated for Best Television Comedy at the 2009 AFI Awards, Lawrence Leung’s “Choose Your Own Adventure” is a 6-part comedy documentary that aired on ABC1 in 2009. It’s a series that asks two questions:

 

“What did you want to be as a kid but never got around to? What if you could do it now?”

 

Lawrence goes on an adventure of a lifetime to attempt to achieve his childhood dreams… it’s poignant, personal and piss funny.

 

 

Can he be a real man in a hardcore pro-wrestling ring? Can he beat the world’s fastest Rubik’s Cube speedsolvers in an underground Fight Club? Can he find MacGyver in Los Angeles? Will he prove he’s cool by breakdancing with Shabba Doo, star of cult classic “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”? Can he survive a rap battle on the mean streets of L.A. or rock out live on MTV? And will he find true love with his childhood crush after more than twenty years?

 

Guided by mentors and scrutinised by his loving but concerned parents (Lawrence’s real mum and dad), Lawrence tries to make his naïve dreams come true as an adult. Lawrence’s quest is hair-raising, heart-warming and hilarious.
