Lauren Elliott has been selected to participate in the SPA (Screen Producers Australia) 'Ones to Watch' Mentoring Program for 2016. Now in its fourth year, Ones To Watch aims to guide and nurture the next wave of Australia’s talented producers. The program focuses on providing expert, one-on-one mentoring and career guidance by a leading, experienced screen industry producer. The rigorous selection process identifies producers already working within the screen content industry now seeking to further expand their careers and businesses.

Lauren is one of 20 successful producers selected from across Australia. She will now spend the next six months being mentored by one of the most accomplished and experienced producers in the Australian screen industry which in past years has included senior executives from Princess Pictures, Essential Media and Entertainment and Porchlight Films.

Through one-on-one guidance and direction by her mentor, Lauren will further develop her slate of Mad Kids projects, increase her professional networks and prepare pitches in the lead up to SCREEN FOREVER Conference, held in Melbourne from Tuesday 15 – Thursday 17 November 2016.
