Amplify Installs Head of Documentary


100 Foot Wave producer Amplify Pictures has appointed Lauren Haber as head of documentary, a newly created role.

Prior to joining Amplify Pictures, Haber served as VP of production at Impact Partners, where she curated and supported their slate of independent documentary projects, including 32 Sounds, Another Body, Aftershock, Paper & Glue and Nuclear Family. In her new role, Haber will be responsible for overseeing Amplify Pictures’ current slate of documentary projects as well as expanding the documentary portfolio with globally commercial, filmmaker-driven projects with an emphasis on ongoing series and IP creation.

Haber will be based in New York and will report to Rachel Eggebeen, Amplify Pictures’ chief content officer.

“I was immediately struck by the ambition, integrity and collaborative spirit that Joe, Rachel and Colin radiate and bring into everything they do at Amplify Pictures,” said Haber. “The company’s fresh perspective and focus on innovation in the documentary space is absolutely thrilling for me to step into. I’m honored and excited to build Amplify Pictures’ global documentary slate, working with visionary filmmakers to tell stories that surprise and entertain under a supportive, creator-driven business model.”

Eggebeen added: “Lauren is a one-of-a-kind producer and executive who thinks big and exemplifies the qualities—smart, funny, innovative—that make Amplify Pictures the home for top filmmakers and creators. She will be a phenomenal leader for Amplify Pictures as we expand our documentary slate, and we are thrilled to have her bring her sharp sensibilities to our growing team.”
