Prolific LAURENCE FULLER tells mind -riveting stories through short film. His stories are packed with head rolling conflict coupled with marrow-ripping, mounting internal and external tension. Intriguing.

LAURENCE FULLER is a prolific storyteller , an internationally acclaimed Writer and multi-award-winning film Artist. This feature installment covers his award-winning short film, ECHOES OF YOU, endorsements from critics, media and other film Arts Practitioners, Memories, Anecdotes and his short resume. Legendary. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC is proud to feature this prominent film Arts Personality. ICONIC Laurence Fuller- (Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).
AN ANECDOTE( Laurence Fuller)- MODERN ART: Art in Education
When I was about eleven years old, at Prep School, I was taught art by a middle-aged lady who sat a boy at the front of the class and told the rest of us to draw him. I found it difficult to get the proportions of the figure remotely right, and I had no knack for catching a likeness. Things were little better when she arranged a bowl of apples in place of the boy. I was also rather messy and I tended to smudge the charcoal. I think it was just assumed I had no natural talent for art.
LAURENCE FULLER was raised between England and Australia. After training in Classical Theatre at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Laurence went into West End theatre including his critically acclaimed performance in Madness In Valencia. Since he has carried lead roles in three US feature films, portraying a range of characters in Road To The Well, Apostle Peter & The Last Supper and Paint It Red, available on all major streaming platforms. On screen Fuller has worked opposite Robert Loggia, Sally Kirkland, Max Cullen, Asher Keddie, Xander Berkley, Lucy Davis and Barry Primus. His work as an actor has been acknowledged by critics and film festivals and was recently tapped as a finalist in the Heath Ledger Scholarship. Lead roles in notable festival shorts include; Possession(s), Mother & Brother, Five Families & Echoes Of You.
“Laurence Fuller (of Road To The Well, Paint It Red) stars in Echoes of You as a classical pianist struggling to make his mark who finds his greatest fulfillment in an unlikely place. This is a very lovely short film that builds to an emotional ending that will hit you hard.” – Alex Billington, First Showing ***** review for Echoes Of You
“Frank was played brilliantly by Laurence Fuller… Beneath his docile exterior, there is a smoldering anger and ruthlessness that only surfaces after a series of calamitous events… This film was good, I’m talking about Alfred Hitchcock and Coen Brothers good.” – Ruthless Reviews ***** review for Road To The Well
“Laurence Fuller is a faultless Pisano” – Time Out **** review for Madness In Valencia
As a writer, Fuller has been published in Modern Painters magazine. Produced screenplays include Possession(s) and the Award-Winning spec script Modern Art, adapted from his late father’s memoirs and letters, which has won Best Screenplay (3rd Place) at Hollywood Reel Film Festival 2020 and had been accepted as a Finalist in six others so far this year.
