Life & Work with Katherine Brooks

Today we’d like to introduce you to Katherine Brooks.

Hi Katherine, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I had a passion for storytelling from a young age. Growing up as an only child in rural Louisiana, I relied on my imagination for entertainment. At 16, I left home and drove to Los Angeles. I lived in my car and met a group of other kids that were aspiring filmmakers. We started making short films, and one of the films made it into an underground film festival. An executive at MTV saw it and my life drastically changed. I started directing shows like The Real World and The Osbornes. I made my first feature film in 2006 called Loving Annabelle and haven’t stopped making films and TV.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was hard living in Los Angeles and is why I left. Because I travel the world on different shows I don’t have to live in New York or Los Angeles or London, the main hubs of productions. It’s hard living almost a nomadic lifestyle, I miss my family a lot.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’ve been Producing and Directing reality TV since its beginning decades ago. I directed shows like The Osbournes, The Real World, The Simple Life, The Bachelor, Fear Factor. I am a member of the Directors Guild which for a woman is a challenge. I’ve also written and directed two feature films and my latest film starring Jill Hennessy will be released later this year 2022.

Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
