What do you do when your friends become international superstars?
You jump for joy, that’s what! It has been a long ride for the Henry, Aaron and Lauren trio but they have finally made it! After years of writing, producing and film making for their Henry & Aaron comedy sketches, these Perth kids have found notoriety in Hollywood! The H,A & L team have just been signed by the world’s leading talent Agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA) who represent A-List stars including George Clooney, Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt and Keanu Reeves as well as film heavyweights James Cameron, Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone along with one of my personal favourites, blogger, Bryan Boy.

The trio have been meeting with top tier Networks, Agents and Production companies in Los Angeles and New York on the back of their recent viral youtube video, It’s A Snap, which was ironically made for Central Institute of Technology in W.A. as a favour for their contribution with sponsorship for a web series the trio developed for Movie Extra Webfest, Henry & Aaron’s 7 Steps To Superstardom back in 2011.
I have known the trio for years and did wardrobe for the 7 Steps series, so when I received the press release from Lauren sending word from New York that they had been signed to CAA I nearly fell off my chair. Not that I was surprised at all, these three are a force to be reckoned with and clearly I am not the only one who thinks so.
Lauren, who has been one of my best friends for around 4 years gave me a card a while ago that said “Keep your eyes on the stars and keep your feet on the ground” a quote by Teddy Roosevelt and it has always been our mantra, so this experience for her is very fitting. Lauren has long been a huge inspiration to me and we have gone through many experiences together over the years and I am sooooooo proud of them all! I look forward to congratulating them in person when they come home in a week or so.
It is my recommendation that you watch their 7 Steps to Superstardom series, although, like all of their work, it is to be taken with a comedy pinch of salt – they certainly knew what they were getting at using that title. Watch this space!
