Lauren Veloski is a Brooklyn-based screenwriter/producer, comedy writer, and brave champion of the flip phone. Her first feature script, the indie comedy “SORRY, THANKS,” was praised by Lena Dunham for writing “as seamless as any studio rom-com—if studio rom-coms had astute, nuanced dialogue.” An “unromantic comedy” about the wreckage wrought by casual douchebaggery, “SORRY, THANKS” (starring Andrew Bujalski & Wiley Wiggins) world-premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, played 15 fests internationally, and was acquired by IFC. Lauren "daylights" as a producer/director in doc television/film and an impact producer on social issue documentaries—shaping engagement campaigns for maximum positive impact. She also writes unbearably funny stuff online (https://medium.com/@ohsensibleshoes) and with her NYC sketch team, CAT BABIES. Lauren graduated from Barnard College, where she studied creative writing—much to her enduring financial detriment.
