Lisa Halling The Beatnik Group 2016

Lisa Halling, Co-Founder/Producer & Head Of Music

Lisa was born and raised in Stockholm, but has spent many years living in the US. Currently, she’s splitting her time between Stockholm and Los Angeles. Lisa went to business school and took a Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 2009. Soon after the graduation, Lisa realized she wasn’t only a business wiz, but also a very creative mind. She started writing music and a new career as an artist and musician took off. Since then, she has had hits on Swedish Radio and has performed on stages such as Kungsträdgården, Debaser, Mosebacke in Stockholm and Hotel Café, Harvelle’s and Room 5 in LA. As much as she loved performing, she missed the business world. It wasn't until she and Lauren teamed up and decided to start The Beatnik Group that she realized she could have the best of both worlds; using organizational skills to run a company while using her creativity to make our clients' visions come to life.

At Beatnik, Lisa is combining her skills in business and creativity, managing business relations, productions, developing projects with clients and teammates, and music scouting. Lisa is also working on her next album.

Lauren Aadland, Co-Founder/ Head Of Visuals

Lauren is an American born visuals expert splitting time between Stockholm and Los Angeles. Lauren graduated from one of the top schools in the U.S.A., The College of William and Mary with a double major in Film and Psychology. Lauren knew from an early age that she had an interest in how the human mind works. This has proven to be a highly beneficial curiosity when creating visual content that pulls the viewer in and makes them care about your messaging. Lauren has experience in a wide range of traditional Hollywood production environments as a Director of Photography; stage manager, project manager, and 3D modeler in a VFX house; and as an editor. This varied skillset is instrumental in working with innovative museums and exhibits. Lauren can speak a technical language that even the most seasoned filmmakers have a hard time with, which has been instrumental in partnering with tech solution teams like av1.se and pixilab.se

At Beatnik, Lauren is the Head of Production and Post Production. Lauren also regularly consults on projects during the development stage.
