Today on What’s My Frame? I’m joined by director and writer Laura Scrivano. I had the joy of meeting and working with Laura earlier this year on the set of WEDDING SEASON. Laura began her career in theatre; that ease of communicating with actors along with her composure and attention to detail while filming in an electric and at moments wild active casino was nothing short of impressive!  Today we’ll dive into what intrigued Laura about the HULU & Disney+ genre busting series as well as some behind the scenes stories.

Laura is an Italian-Australian filmmaker now based in London. She shares details of her journey to become a working director. She speaks honestly about the challenges and limitations female creatives often face and what can be done to create an equal playing field going forward. Outside her work on WEDDING SEASON, Laura also directed two episodes of sci-fi drama THE LAZARUS PROJECT, and is also working on her debut feature as writer/director. 

She began her career in theatre, directing productions at Belvoir St, Australian Theatre for Young People and Opera Australia; and creating digital content for Sydney Theatre Company under the artistic directorship of Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton.

Laura’s work has been described as ‘beautifully honest’ (The Guardian), ‘mind blowing’ (The Times), ‘groundbreaking’ (Sydney Morning Herald), and ‘inspirational’ (PromoNews). She was named as “Ones to Watch” for the Edinburgh TV Festival 2020-2021. 

A graduate of the Australian Film, Television & Radio School (AFTRS) in both directing and screenwriting, her shorts have screened at festivals internationally, including BFI Flare, Sundance, Oberhausen, Aesthetica, Cyprus Film Days, Cinema des Antipodes at Festival de Cannes and New York Fashion Week.
