Writer / Director / Actor
Working with Navid Lancaster on ‘Carnival Medea – A Bacchanal’ was the icing on the cake any artist and creator could desire. I have worked with all quality of sound designers in Canada, and Lancaster has spoiled me. As a director you can change your mind at a whim from an inspiration and Navid was never phased by my re-visions, either was any task too difficult. He delivered just as rapid as my brain. Navid went far beyond his call of vocation as a Sound Designer on Carnival Medea, and I will never meet another like him in this industry. He has certainly spoiled me, and wherever in the world I may go, I am moving with the Lancast. Such brilliance, he can interpret a text into sfx. What more than that would a writer and director want is beyond my comprehension.

“Navid has pulled me out of near disasters with a quiet strength and all of his expertise. We met at work in 2007. Watching him complete the audio for Panorama that year left me in awe. A true friend in every sense of the word. Cheers to you, my friend as he shares his numerous talents with us all”

Founder at CalypsoCloud
“VISIONARY SOUNDS! Navid first introduced himself to me when I was in Trinidad & Tobago as a guest speaker at the Animae Caribe Animation & New Media Festival. Since then we have been in contact. One of my goals at the time was to collaborate with innovative entrepreneurs from the islands to do great work globally and he fit the criteria to a “T”. We have been working together on small projects but we have our eyes set on larger ones where we can use both our talents towards an innovative business solution. I have to say his music diversity is astonishing, he’s an entrepreneur who uses music as his tool to solve business problems.”
Founder at Lordstreet Theatre Company
Navid Lancaster has worked with us on two of our most recent projects, ‘MISS MILES the Woman of the World’ (2015) and ‘performing MARCUS & AMY’ (2016). For both of these projects he was charged with the responsibility of doing full music productions including vocal recordings. The music in both cases was needed to drive these theatrical events because they constituted 3 to 4 minutes of performances in both cases. Mr. Lancaster readily understood what was needed and was readily able to make appropriate, effective, aesthetic suggestions and choices. Navid displayed a flexibility in technique and manner that allowed us to move the projects into a very favourable reality. We were very pleased with his professionalism and prompt delivery of the required products.
