behind the lens.
Hey folks, my name's Lauren Colbert!
I am a mission-driven visual storyteller, marketing strategist, and psychology nerd. Bridging the gap between bold marketing ideas and media production has been the centerfold of my academic and work endeavors. Since I was young, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, pushing me to start "Lauren Colbert Media" as a high school student. What started out as solely a portraiture business evolved into much more, and led me to take on projects from videography, design, brand development, and social media. I have never been a fan of putting myself in a box, so this outlet has provided me a means of collaborating with a wide range of individuals and organizations.
My experiences working for and coordinating media teams at YMCA Camp Tecumseh and IU Recreational Sports have helped me hone in my production skills, leadership abilities, and passion for industrial/organizational psychology. On the academic side of things, I recently graduated from Indiana University in the spring of 2020 with a B.A. in Media, a concentration in Advertising, a specialization in Media Research, and minors in Psychology, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing (whew!).
At the end of the day, storytelling has been the motivating force in my work. Being able to capture glimpses of the human spirit in action continually gives me excitement like none other. I strive to constantly grow and learn from other creative individuals to become a better artist. If you have any interest in collaborating, feel free to submit an inquiry through the contact page. I am always eager to meet new people and tell the next story.
