Greenpoint Pictures has announced the addition of Lauren Sick to their director roster for US commercial representation. Coupling raw emotion with a visual style rooted in her background of theatre, punk rock, and dance, Sick brings a youthful and darkly adventurous tone to her filmmaking.
Growing up in the woods of suburbia and screening inappropriate horror movies at slumber parties, Lauren found her unique passion for film at a young age. Having come up in the industry as an actor and producer, she currently focuses on writing and directing a wide range of content including short films, music videos, and commercials. Working with artists such as Vampire Weekend, Chromeo, and Foster the People, she has garnered several Vimeo Staff Picks as well as tens of millions of views. Her 2015 fashion film for the Kering Group shot in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Lauren’s distinctive approach has grabbed the attention of clients including New Balance, Beats by Dre, Garmin, FADER, and SoulCycle.
Says Greenpoint creative director Niles Roth, “Lauren Sick is a golden unicorn. Finding a reel with her level of inventiveness is rare. She has an insatiable hunger for the craft, an uncompromisable cinematic sensibility, along with intelligence, poise, and more charm in her pinky than most people have in full family trees; it's like finding a needle in a haystack. She's a great match for the GP team and culture. We're excited she's with us.”
“I have been a freelance director by choice for many years,” says Lauren. “But the moment Greenpoint Pictures entered my orbit (and the moment Niles Roth showed up to our first meeting wearing a bedazzled, black light, wolf t-shirt), all bets were off. Joining this team, I immediately felt the support, transparency, and big-picture vision that makes Greenpoint so unique. They manage to run a tight ship while remaining some of the kindest and most exciting people to be around. Their effortless balance of familiarity and professionalism with both their directors and clients is so special and rare. I am thrilled to be joining the GP fam.”
