Katie Bell is a London-based director known for her ability to draw naturalistic, genuine and moving performances from children and adults as well as her eye for the aesthetic in capturing worlds with an authentic sense of depth and beauty. Katie's interest in directing came after graduating from Middlesex University with a Graphic Design degree. She soon joined MTV Europe, designing titles and on-screen graphics before moving to work in post-production combining special effects work with title sequence design. Her titles for John Paul Gaultier's Eurotrash resulted in her being asked to direct her first music video. The next 10 years saw Katie shoot videos for artists such as The Bee Gees, Boyzone, Girls Aloud, Rachel Stevens and Myleene Klass to name just a few (in studios and on location all over the world from Europe to Australia, Cuba, South Africa, the USA and Canada). Since 2003 she has crafted a successful career in commercials. Brands she has shot for include KLM, Capital Radio, Dove, Persil, Ribena, Listerine, B&Q, Skip, Pampers, Danone, Chico, Kinder, Eurostar, Scholl, Kraft, Muller, Walmart and Minute-maid to name a few. Katie is a collaborative director, a team player who brings a strong visual aesthetic, a complete commitment and formidable work ethic to every project she involves herself with.
