Across the Canvas Productions was founded in 1978 by Lance Britt

Blank Surfaces

We enter into this, our world, a blank canvas. The watercolors of our young lives are washed away in moments by the tears, laughter, and rain. In our youth, the pastels are replaced with all the shades and hues of a distant rainbow fading across the horizon; the storms we face, along with the sun-drenched skies are calmed with the waves of time. For some, our canvases are layered with bright acrylics and all the grays that blend with each tiny stroke cast by a well-worn brush. Still others paint their days with vibrant oils and leave in their wake pieces of who they were and are yet to become.  ~ Lance Britt  

Across the Canvas Productions

Lance Britt is the writer, director, and Producer of Blank Surfaces.  Blank Surfaces celebrated the start of season 23 on January 6, 2022. Blank Surfaces offers an outlet for aspiring talents of all ages, actors, writers, directors, producers, dancers, models, photographers, musicians, comedians, artist from across the full spectrum of mediums, and all those who have chosen to reach for their endless dreams with a stroke of a pen or a melody of colors cast across a blank surface. The show highlights talent from around the world. Both established individuals and persons who aspire for recognition and who touch people's lives are featured.

Lance Britt

Lance Britt ​grew-up in the entertainment and fashion industries. This included all aspects of film, television, radio, music, stage, fashion, and print media. His aunt and uncle knew Walt Disney and worked with people who ran the studios in Hollywood and New York.  His aunt was a fashion model and accomplished musician. His uncle's invention was a staple of every hotel chain across America including Las Vegas. Las Vegas performers were friends of the family. Since Lance was personally involved in the business of show from birth,  He saw how different people handled talent. He liked best the Disney Model. In the 1970s he ​managed both models and musicians. He begin to consider those he worked with as a family of friends. The concept of show business was something he was a part of.  The money and fame part of the plan was a part of  Lance's inner workings. In the late 1970s after the success of a single Lance wrote and recorded  he ​started Across the Canvas Productions to help others. He  gave access to anyone who wanted to be part of what his company did with only one requirement.  You have to be nice. As part of the requirement it means a person must be able to get along with others. Lance has a strict ​no drama policy.  Lance ​started Across the Canvas Productions because he is passionate about what he does and to help others who have that same passion.  This along with a desire to be a part in some way of the business of show.
