View Lauren's director credit list here:
Lauren's award winning work has been screened at worldwide festivals, in art galleries, within international flagship stores and with major online publications such as Marie Claire, InStyle and A Shaded View of Fashion.
Lauren has experience in 3 directing worlds; theatre, film and commercials. This background gives her a unique skillset:
- The performer-centric approach of a director trained in theatre
- The visual storytelling, audience-centric approach of a film director
- The cut-through-the-noise attitude of a commercial director.
Throw in there her art and writing background and you have someone with a strong desire to find the unusual in the ordinary.
Whilst directing in theatres in London and New York Lauren began cutting her teeth on short films that went on to be screened in art galleries, festivals and even used as international education tools.
Combining film, art and fashion was a natural progression for her and she started working in digital content for fashion and lifestyle brands. Working from pitch to post she has created work for major household names, luxury brands and niche independents. Shortlisted for the British Fashion Council's Fash/ON Film Award and Triumph's Women in the Making award, Lauren’s imaginative concepts take you somewhere unexpected but always answer the brief.
Art and music play a crucial role in her creative so much so that several pieces of work have been shown in art galleries. This year Lauren is working on her first designed-for-gallery video installation that will then also become a music video.
Currently Lauren is in post-production on a documentary about a coffin factory, as well as development for her first feature film and writing on an upcoming TV series.
You'll usually find her drinking tea. Or vodka.
