Hollywood calling

Perth PR guru Lauren Elliott is off to Hollywood.

Elliott will leave WA this Friday after securing a producer placement at Hollywood star Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films and American comedy duo Tim & Eric's Abso Lutely Productions in Los Angeles.

In landing the coup, Elliot will have to leave her PR firm Muse Bureau, which is celebrating its fifth birthday and its biggest year to date.

Muse Bureau co-director Grant Capriotti will now run the agency solo.

Elliott said she could hardly believe the opportunity to work as a producer on an international level, which was made possible through ScreenWest's Professional Development Fund and Screen Australia's Talent Escalator program.

"I'm so proud of how much our business has grown over the last 3 1/2 years and I know it will just get bigger and better with Grant at the helm," the creative said.

"I'm sad to be leaving Muse Bureau but I'm so excited about moving to LA. I'm so grateful to have such an incredible opportunity to learn from some of Hollywood's best."

ScreenWest's Rikki Lea Bestall said Elliott had impressed with her work on a series of local productions.

"Lauren's track record in comedy with Henry & Aaron as well as her new company Mad Kids makes her a perfect match to learn from these prolific, high-level Hollywood comedy production companies," she said.

Meanwhile, it is believed that Capriotti, who was recruited to personally manage publicity for Hugh Jackman's recent visit to Perth, will be working with Prada Australia to produce next month's VIP opening of the highly anticipated Miu Miu boutique on King Street.

Muse Bureau is also gearing up for WA's largest fashion fundraiser, STYLEAID, which is set to celebrate one of its biggest events to date on August 1.
