Lauren Rayner Productions offers producing consultations for stage, film, and multi-media on a per-project basis. The difference between consulting and actual producing is that Lauren Rayner does not seek a producing credit for a project for which she only offers advice and suggestions. The only requirement is small acknowledgment of Lauren Rayner Productions in the program (or on the website) by name or logo.
Working with LRP, you are not only hiring a consultant, but getting into a mindset. And LRP’s mindset is a simple one: taking care of the team, will take care of the story. Executive Producer Lauren Rayner is passionate about the artists that she collaborates with and holds them to a high degree of professionalism and talent.
LRP seeks to take on projects that are adventurous, socially-provocative, and challenging. If you find yourself with a burgeoning idea or dream of a production, but no idea where to start, Lauren will guide you on your journey, and will probably learn a great deal from you along the way, too!
Lauren will meet with you one-on-one in person or via phone to discuss becoming a consultant on your project. Expectations will be discussed and a full review of your project will take place after this initial conversation. Once both parties agree to work together, a fee basis will be established and a schedule of meetings and calls will be mutually agreed upon for the duration of your project.
