Crew & Staff
Lenny Mosco | CEO
From early childhood, Lenny had a great love for film, television, and animation. As a young man, he and his father would often head to the theater to see all the new blockbuster movies that came out. Being big Disney fans, Lenny, and his family would often take trips to Disney World in Florida. This is where a lot of his inspiration came from creatively. As a young man, Lenny often spent time on film sets helping his father with their small New Jersey-based film company. One of Lenny’s passions is writing and he has written many fanatical short stories. Being an avid Anime fan, the inspiration for the name 10th Voyage Studios came from one of his favorite Anime series, One Piece. In 2008, a couple of years after moving to Palm Coast, Florida, Lenny met the Creative husband and wife team of Scott and Sandra Nance. They all had a common love for the cinema and they would later become business partners in 10th Voyage Studios, one of Northeast Florida’s premiere motion picture and production facilities.
