Meet Lauren

Lauren keeps Pocket Creatives running, and you’ll most commonly find her mixing new project planning with the weekly scheduling.

Quite simply, your project just doesn’t happen without Lauren’s organisational skills, transitioning each project from pre-production to end delivery.

What do you do in your role?

In a nutshell I process, organise, schedule and deliver information! The spectrum of my role at Pocket Creatives is quite large – ranging from looking after the team and organising our daily to do’s to running projects such as recipe videos.

If I’m not shooting, then my day in the office is spent with the team, planning upcoming Pocket Creatives projects, looking after edit deliveries and doing everything I can to meet the client’s needs.

What do you actually do?

By meeting client needs, I actually mean sourcing props such as your everyday inflatable giant bananas, hunting down farm barns to shoot in, and having awkward conversations with models such as “what’s your package size?!” 🙂

Oh, and I keep Haider in line. That’s 90% of the job.

What do your team think you do?

The Pocket Creatives team think I’m a walking calendar with all dates and to do’s implemented into my brain, to be fair, I kind of am!

Most embarrassing story?

Most people would need to think about this one… not me! A few years back Pocket Creatives were photographing some beautiful jewellery with a client and I may have dropped a diamond earring in front of them whilst setting up a shot. I quickly gasped “It’s okay, still intact” and although it was perfectly fine, our client nearly had a heart attack! I’m not sure what the fuss was all about, it was only worth 15 thousand dollars!

What’s your favourite thing about your job? 

Can I only pick one?!

My favourite thing about my job here at Pocket Creatives is the partnerships and growing alongside the brands that we work with. We create content that helps them tell their story and it’s such a great feeling when we get to the end of a project and you can see impact that our creations have made.

What keeps you motivated?

The Pocket Creatives team, the fun, the results and the never-ending amount of work to do ?

Most annoying habit?

Slurping tea, but not the usual slurp, it’s a Lauren kinda slurp.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?

Spending quality time with my favourite tortoise, yep, I have a pet tortoise.
