Kat is a Film, TV and Commercial Director. For this, I call her a unicorn. She started as an actor but started to realize she wanted to have more influence on the final product. Kat went on to make a short with Funny or Die, where Janeane Garofalo told her to "stop f**&^%ing apologizing!" Oh, to have Janeane Garofalo yell at you!
Later she wrote and directed a beautiful film called And While We Were Here. You can find it on Hulu. It really is gorgeous. And she did it with no money. In Italy. While pregnant. That is badass.
Currently, she is directing television - all your favorite shows, The Mick, Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce, and Alone Together.
She tells us her journey in directing, the state of women in the business, and what inspires her.
And, it turns out you can get big female stars to show up for your tiny shoot if you just ask them to act in a scene with another woman. With dialogue. This is the revolution.
And of course...preparation, preparation, preparation.
