Lauren Racquel

Partner and Co-Founder of Black Unicorn Films, LLC.
A person of few words. Lauren Racquel is a black cinematographer. She began her career working on commercials for a number of high-profile companies and clients. Her extensive prior experience in theatre has enabled her to capture within each frame the innate essence, vim, and fragility of the story.

Lauren earned her bachelor’s in sociology from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a master’s degree in film and television from DePaul University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Lauren’s exceptional authentic subjectivity is a recurring theme throughout her work.

From mud floors to UFOs Lauren has found a way to merge her love for life and art into one medium, allowing her camera lens to reach far beyond this physical plane.

Orion is Morale and Security Officer of Black Unicorn Films, LLC.
Orion does not take phone calls or answer emails, but he does occasionally attend meetings and partake in scouting activities. He is a seasoned professional utilizing his extensive skills at relaxation, and his duties are fluid and flexible. He greets all clients and visitors with a contagious smile and a wagging tail.

Orion comes to our team from a rescue shelter and ever since he arrived, he has captured hearts. He is a descendant of the long line of honorable working Australian Kelpies. Like his family before him he has the instinct to herd and protect his flock.

When he is not in the office working, he can be found outside playing chase, chewing on frisbees, stealing treats, and kisses from everyone he can.

If you need some additional security on set, from rabbits, voles, and squirrels Black Unicorn Films, LLC can provide that too.
