She created the idea for The Beauty of Aging Documentary Project out of a desire to find inspiring models of aging for herself and other women. Laurie produced and directed a documentary short, SCAT, The Story of “Scatman” John Larkin and was Associate Producer on a narrative short, PICKLED. She produced and directed Greedy for Life, a 35-minute short on Shirley & Lavada, two of the women in The Beauty of Aging project.
