Lauren Patrice Nadler
Lauren started out as an actress in NYC studying extensively with Uta Hagen’s Protégé, Karen Ludwig. She enjoyed an independent film casting career that resulted in casting 2002 academy award winner Adrian Brody of THE PIANIST in his first lead role in TEN BENNY, as well as the NYC casting for Restaurant which featured a host of up and coming stars including Lauren Hill, Simon Baker and Jesse Martin. Lauren then ended up as a First and Second Assistant Director on numerous independent films .
While being strongly responsible for the completion of these projects, the artist in Lauren was dormant and soon realized that assisting logistically was not where her passion was. So armed with her ability to draw powerful performances from actors she threw herself into teaching Bi-coastally, directing off- Broadway shows and coaching countless actors towards successes of TV & Major Motion Pictures. She migrated to Los Angeles and continues to teach while being sought after to direct.
With a feature film and a few award winning short films under her belt, Lauren start her own production company Winged Warrior Entertainment out of a desire to create meaningful projects. Most recently Lauren directed 2 short films ONE LAST SHOT a powerful drama on preventing bullying and teenage suicide. The other BEING BRIELLE also a drama based on the life story of Renee Kaminsky her Co-producer on ITS YOU NOT ME. Both of these films are currently successfully circulating the festival circuit, all under her company umbrella.
After being knee deep in dramatic work for quite some time, including 2 stage productions (an original one woman show about animal rights and a dark Tennessee Williams piece) with an equal flair for both drama and comedy, she decided that 2012 she would make it her business to get people laughing, so she threw herself into producing and directing ITS YOU NOT ME.
This hilarious dating series has been a most gratifying directing experience. Every member of the cast is an up and coming star, if not already a star in her eyes. As well, everyone with the exception of our established comic is one of her alumni students of her acting studio. She is so very proud of cast and this series, and looks forward to getting it out there.
