On an ultra-low budget (about $600), I got a small group of talented people together during the pandemic to attempt to create something about this past year that would be relatable, while still being light. For many of us, last year was one of the loneliest in our lives, despite the fact that we were all sharing in something completely bizarre and tragic. It’s important for us all to realize that no matter how lonely we may feel, someone else, somewhere, is bound to be going through something similar (and many times, they are closer than we may realize).
Lauren’s background in journalism and as a published author, as well as her on-set experience as a producer, actress and PA, all helped push her toward screenwriting and directing. She is currently working on re-writes on her first feature film. The Longest Day of the Year marks her debut as a writer & director.
