OUTSIDER : Laz Rojas - Documentary Television Series by Viceland

After several failed attempts to break into the film industry, aspiring actor/screenwriter Laz Rojas suddenly realized how he was going to catch Hollywood’s attention and created the most ambitious demo tape of all time. He personally portrayed 102 different characters – every man, woman, child and alien – creating a universe populated entirely by himself. He submitted these tapes to every producer, studio and manager that he could find, but received no response. 

In the latest episode of OUTSIDER, a show that uncovers the singular minds behind the world’s strangest movies, VICE tracks down Laz Rojas, now living under unstable conditions in Los Angeles, to uncover the mystery behind the man, his work, and its unlikely rediscovery.
