What ever happened to ... cub drummer Lisa G?

After laying down the beats for some rock and roll history, Lisa G has gone on to an award-winning career in film. She touched a lot of lives with music, but she's touched many more through another art form.

She's been working with the NFB, interacting with young people and telling some fabulous stories. A bio on one site explains:
Lisa G Nielsen is a filmmaker and storyteller who belives everyone has a story to tell. Her short films and animations have screened around the world (and even won a few awards!)

Lisa has worked with the National Film Board as a Technical Director/Mentor Editor for digital storytelling initiatives with kids, seniors, street youth, poet and remote first nation communities.

Lisa is currently working on a trilogy of films about Riverview, a mental institution in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
Way to go! Kudos to Lisa G for breaking through every single stereotype about drummers. Congratulations and all the best for the future.
