Lauran has joined Luc GJ Begin’s Triality Productions as a writer in the new USA arm of his international audio-visual production company.
‘Killer Eyes’ was written by Lauran Childs, English writer in Miami.
She was born and raised in Birkenhead in the north of England. Technically known as a ‘woolly-back’ – a reference to the countryside she grew up in just outside of Liverpool – Lauran excelled at school and loved writing and art in particular. It’s been a revelation, and a pleasure, to discover that she’s way more Irish than English.
Lauran attained an honors degree in Film and Literature at Essex University, England. Whilst at university she became ardently involved in an anti-rape organisation in London and worked on the publication of the first study on rape and sexual harassment in England – ‘Ask Any Woman’.
After leaving university Lauran worked in the anti-rape movement for years as an activist, and public speaker in particular, whilst dancing most nights and enjoying the rich cultural mix of London – a follow-on from her experiences at Essex University, the most multi-cultural university in England.
Lauran has always pursued her artistic and literary leanings and continued to paint portraits, to write books (which tragically died in a fire – pre-internet), and edited a Booker and Orange prize winner’s work, who shall remain nameless because he doesn’t deserve the publicity.
Lauran moved to the USA some years ago and lived in San Francisco and the wine country before moving to Miami twelve years ago. Well-traveled, Lauran says Miami is the place that delights her most of all.
Since moving to Miami, Lauran has continued to enjoy the stimulus of different cultures, to write and to paint – including pop art murals in South Beach – and started writing movie scripts. Lauran always knew she that would make movies. She just wanted a rich life experience before she began.
Now it’s time.
Lauran’s has also written other scripts in different genres, including the horror film ‘She Lives Again’, which she will start crowdfunding for in early 2018. She intends to direct the movie later in the year.
Lauran adores cats, often feeds around 20 a day and intends to create a Miami cat sanctuary 😻😻😻😻😻 and a dog sanctuary 🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶 which will provide living examples of great ways to treat animals that can be copied around the globe.
One of the top Miami reviewers on TripAdvisor, Lauran loves good food and drink and possesses an enviable capacity to consume copious amounts of both without getting fat – she’s in pretty good shape – or drunk. Well, most of the time.
