Hi! I'm Lara. Founder of Bad Hoss Productions, LLC (formerly Russo Productions.)


I have always had a boundless sense of curiosity and adventure, I grew up creating magical fantasy worlds in the woods and fields of Northern New England.I began singing in our local church and eventually fell in love with musical theatre. 

This led me to a path toward performance and I studied at 2 different colleges for voice and theater arts, including The Boston Conservatory (now The Boston Conservatory at Berklee.) 

I've always had my hands in some creative expression, from pottery to song writing, makeup artistry for theater and various dance forms including Flamenco. I fell in love with video production and editing around 2014. When I tried my hand at shooting my first videoI felt like I had finally found a way to combine these elements of story telling blending together the emotional landscapes of sound, music and visual arts.

I was hooked!

Initially self taught on an old version of FCP, I later completed trainings in Video Production, Adobe, After Affects, and Davinci Resolve. I have worked with numerous nonprofits and businesses and I currenly work full time as a multimedia manager/video director with CU Presents at the University of Colorado at Boulder. 

I enjoy creating affecting experiences for the viewer that lead to moments of connection, humor and a deeper understanding of our world.

Thank you for trusting me with these moments.
