Sahaya Going Beyond
Andy Lauer

Director and founder of Reelaid: Andy Lauer

Mr. Lauer’s film career as a writer/director has taken him to the toughest of conditions (the North Pole) and to the most unique (underwater, inside shark cages). He has made films in regions as diverse as Central America, the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. He founded ReelAid (Reelaid.org) to make the tools of film production more readily available to organizations engaged in helping others, both locally and globally.

His documentary The Tehuacan Project (executive producer Brad Pitt, narration by Academy Award winner Adrien Brody), gave voice to the plight of deaf children in Mexico, and highlighted efforts to make education available to the children and their families.
His current project The Hill that Chris Climbed: Gridiron Heroes Story (executive producer Peter Berg) is the powerful story of high school football player Chris Canales whose life was dramatically altered by a spinal cord injury during a game.

Lauer is also in the final stages of Sahaya - Going Beyond, a documentary about an organization that joins forces with a community in India to battle HIV/AIDS and build a better future.

Andy Lauer and Jeremy Irons

Lauer received critical acclaim for his multi-award winning short film, Little Cuba, and as an Emmy-nominated actor, he has co-starred on the big screen in Gunshy (Liam Neeson and Sandra Bullock), Screamers (Peter Weller), and Never On Tuesday (Peter Berg). He has also appeared in For the Boys (Bette Midler), Oliver Stone's The Doors (Val Kilmer) and Born on the Fourth of July (Tom Cruise). Lauer is best known to America as "Charlie" on the hit NBC comedy series Caroline in the City. He has a supporting role in "Iron Man 3".
