Lucas was born in Argentina and moved with his family to Italy at the age of 5. As a youngster, Lucas showed promise in story- telling and the visual arts. After finishing his studies, he decided he would start making his own films and wrote and directed his first of the horror,The Bastard Contadine, completed in 2005.
He kept making films, determined to invigorate the Italian indie scene, and was finally noticed internationally for his short presentation of Il Marito Perfetto, which was selected at Roma International Film Fest and won best short at Buffalo Scream Horror Festival and Mexico Horror Film Fest.
Numerous other awards followed, along with hundreds of thousands of youtube hits. This lead to attention from Italian indie backing to expand the short into Pavetto's first major feature production, The Perfect Husband. Casting in LA found Gabriella Wright and Bret Roberts for his leading roles.
Lucas has shot his second feature in New York, a thriller called Alcoholist. The film also stars Bill Moseley and John Robinson.
Lucas is currently developing his third feature film, a thriller called I FIGLI DEL MALE.
