A young man takes his love for lizards to the extreme. He legally changes his last name to Lizardi and then, camcorder in tow, goes in search of any lizard he can find and zoom in on. A crash-course in lizard awareness, he meets and chats it up with several townsfolk with something lizard-related to offer. One man shows Lance how to get a lizard to bite your ear to create a lizard ear ring. Another encourages Lance to go on Conan O’Brien to present a selection of lizards. All this in spite of his mother who is sick and tired of all the lizards and wants them out of the house forcing Lizardi to split. Commissioned by Borscht Corp, the Miami arts syndicate responsible for highlighting some of the best and brightest alt moviemakers of the day, “Lance Lizardi” is a lizard free-for-all with entrancing originality. (9 minutes).
