Lucas had the idea to speak with Bill Clinton at a book lecture in Toronto. After briefly meeting with Bill, he decided to pitch an idea to make a campaign video for his wife Hillary Clinton. Lucas produced a three-minute video from the six hours of raw footage. To Lucas’ delight Bill Clinton agreed to his offer. After coming up with this idea, he decided to document his experience in a movie called, “Werpoltics.” The movie is based on his production campaign film promoting the 2008 presidential campaign. Baiano's video has been featured on Hillary Clinton's official youth program/support sites hillblazers.com.

Today, Lucas has been named one of the top political leaders earning him a spot of the front cover of the Political Leaders – a magazine for people of power. As well he is the founder of Lumiere films, a film company that he started when he was just sixteen years old. Lucas’ trailer has given him plenty of media exposure like Canada AM, CTV news, Colby O’Brian, etc.
