You may not be working in the the top two markets for acting, and that’s OK.
Lauren Sowa headed out of Pennsylvania to New York City to train at NYU Tisch. While training at NYU, Lauren studied the Meisner Technique and Shakespeare developing the skills so many other actors earning a degree hold dear. But while many graduates from acting school look to use those skills as a means for employment in other artists projects, Lauren chose to create her own opportunities and creative work.
In 2016, she and Tim Eliot founded Form & Pressure Films to tell stories that inspire and provoke thought, while encouraging diversity and equality on set and on screen. Well before the “inclusion rider” statement, Lauren and her company were working hard to ensure everyone with the skill was adequately represented above and below the line.
As an actor, Lauren has been featured in the films 42 Seconds of Happiness (now available on Amazon Prime), Café Artist, The Rainbow Experiment (premiered at Slamdance 2018), and The Devil’s Well. Upcoming: the indie feature Paris is in Harlem. She received her BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Proud member of Actor’s Equity and SAG-AFTRA.
