Film maker

Katy grew up in the East Midlands and studied Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University originally intending to be a painter. After various experiments with super 8 and the college primitive EOS, she became fascinated with animation and her graduation film FOOLS GOLD won the student 1st prize at Hannover Film Festival 1992.

At the Royal College of Art, she directed PIGGY IN THE MIDDLE and FALLEN, developing a technique of backlit tissue paper cut-outs on a large multiplane. She went on to direct in the industry including 4 mins digital animation for Genesis World Tour and an ident for Acme Film Works.

In 1998 she was funded by East Midlands Arts and Central TV to direct her 5 min short MARTHA’S WHITER WASH, distributed by Jane Balfour Films.

In 2002 she wrote and directed MERVYN for Channel Four TV, produced by Sylvie Bringas. She began her first live action film and directed WIG SISTERS, funded by British Film Council/EMMedia, with Chris Cooke (director of One For the Road) as DOP. In this film she was able to combine her love of circus cabaret and wigs.

When she is not developing films, Katy is also pursuing her collaborative performance work with circus artist Marcos Llevot which involves projecting vibrant animated illusions onto a German wheel. The show was performed in the Big Top at Glastonbury Festival 2005.
