He worked for Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studios' Electronic Cinema division on One From the Heart, The Outsiders and Rumble Fish, but it was his USC short film, The Beaver Gets a Boner, that led to his direction of the feature film Heathers in 1988.
He has directed nine feature films, including Airheads, The Truth About Cats & Dogs, 40 Days and 40 Nights and the no-budget hi-def movie Flakes, still in process. For television, Lehmann has directed, among others, episodes of Homicide, The West Wing, The Larry Sanders Show, Big Love and several pilots. He was also the executive producer of Tim Burton's Ed Wood.
Lehmann lives in Marin County, California, with his wife and two children.
