LOS ANGELES, USA // Lauri Brown is an EVP/AV and Creative Director at Ignition Creative, where she has produced numerous trailers including Dunkirk, Arrival, Interstellar, Sully, Live By Night, Tarzan, and The Hobbit trilogy.

A UCLA graduate, Lauri originally became interested in theatrical advertising after interning with a feature editorial team. Instantly hooked on the world of film, Lauri eschewed a political career in her hometown of Sacramento to join the finishing department of Aspect Ratio, where she soon rose to a producer role.

In 2003, Lauri joined BLT and helped build the company’s AV division, working on a variety of theatrical campaigns. Some of her favorites include Obsessed and Stomp The Yard, as well as The Last Samurai, Contagion, Bridesmaids, Inception and The Dark Knight.

After BLT, Lauri transitioned to Ignition Creative. She is a multiple winner of Key Art and Clio awards for her work including Inception and Interstellar as well winning “Best In Show” for The Dark Knight.

Lauri’s love for her job precludes any real hobbies, but she loves taking her new puppy, Ripley, for walks. At the dog park, no one can hear your scream.
