Lauren Anne Miller
Lauren Anne Miller, a Long Island native, moved to Lakeland, Florida when she was 8 years old. After graduating from the Harrison Center for the Performing and Visual Arts High School with a concentration in Visual Arts, she moved to New York City to study fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While getting her Associates Degree at FIT, Lauren began her acting career.
Leaving her sewing machine behind, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the film school at Florida State University, where she wrote and directed four short films, two of which played at film festivals around the country; and produced, edited, production-designed, and crewed on over 50 other short films.
After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles and worked as an assistant to Academy Award-winning producer Steve Starkey. Making the decision to focus on writing and acting, she had small parts in such movies as Greg Mottola’s Superbad, Jody Hill’s Observe and Report, and Jonathan Levine’s 50/50; and earned a “New Writer’s Deal” at the (now-defunct) Fox Atomic motion picture arm, and wrote two (unproduced) feature scripts for the studio. For a Good Time, Call…marks her feature producing debut, after producing several short films, and is her first feature script to be produced.
Ms. Miller is currently reteamed with Katie Anne Naylon, writing a new original screenplay for actress/producer Elizabeth Banks.
