In 2011, Leguizamo returned to Broadway with his new solo play, Ghetto Klown, the next chapter in his hugely popular personal and professional story.

MIKE FIGGIS

Directing Reel

“Stormy Monday” was the first feature film from Figgis and had critical and box office success in the US. He made the move to Hollywood to direct his first features there, including “Internal Affairs” (1989),  "Liebestraum” (1990), “Mr. Jones” (1992), “The Browning Version” (1993), and “Leaving Las Vegas” (1994).

In the ensuing years, Figgis mixed his film genres between the more lucrative studio fare (“One Night Stand” and “Cold Creek Manor”) and Indie films (“Miss Julie”, “Loss of Sexual Innocence”) using 16mm and smaller crews (and smaller budgets).

His 2000 feature, “Timecode,” proved to be a watershed of sorts; it was the first feature film ever to be shot in real time without a single edit. It utilized 4 screens with a cast of 30 Hollywood actors - all improvising around the structure. “Timecode” changed many perceptions about film and ushered in a digital era.  It also inspired the TV series “24”.

After 15 years in and out of Hollywood it was time for a change and Figgis decided to focus on other aspects of his creativity. Increasingly in demand as a teacher at film schools, Mike has created a series of master classes which have taken place across Europe and the US. He is also a visiting teacher at the London Film School and The National Film School

COMMERCIALS - Mike also makes commercials but is particularly proud of the series of films he made with Kate Moss for Agent Provocateur.  The Four Dreams of Miss X is credited with revolutionizing the world of knickers and lingerie.

PHOTOGRAPHY - Mike has been photographing since the age of 11 and his work has been exhibited in New York, LA, and London. He has close ties with the Photographers Gallery in London and chairman of the fundraising committee there.

DOCUMENTARIES - Vivian Westwood (1994), Just Dancing Around (1995), Flamenco Women (1998), Red White and Blues (2003), Hollywood Conversations (1996), and Just Tell the Truth  (2011).

MUSIC - Mike continues to perform on trumpet, guitar and bass with a variety of groups, some traditional jazz based, others more experimental (The People Band). He also works with pianist and performance artist Rosie Chan, creating video content and performing occasionally.
