Seed Media Arts is pleased to announce the addition of Director, Kali Bailey, to its roster. This continues Seed’s recent run of partnerships with experienced cinematic storytellers all having expertise in numerous aspects of filmmaking. Bailey is an accomplished Director with a strong background in Writing, Cinematography, and Editorial that is proudly rooted in the LGBTQ+ community.
Kali describes her journey; “I did not come out until later in life, and once I did, I felt a great deal of rejection and loss from my community. Rebuilding my entire life came with heartache and loneliness but through this process I learned true compassion and empathy. It taught me how to be a better human and learn many different perspectives on life. Naturally, this has folded into my storytelling as a director. Whether the work has to do with the LGBTQ+ community or not, I’ve learned that I love directing stories that get people to think from the heart.”
Seed Partner & Executive Producer, Brad Johnson; “All of our directors find personally unique ways to tell heartwarming stories that are grounded in authentic emotion. Kali’s work is filled with these sorts of tender moments. They have the ability to move one to tears.”
Bailey is fresh off her first feature release as a Co-Writer on the film, “A Week Away” which recently premiered on Netflix and is currently available for streaming. And Netflix isn’t the only media powerhouse Bailey has been working with. She was also recently contracted by Disney to direct their internal “Women’s Day” video. Her self-produced tribute to the Harry Potter franchise is currently counting above the 6 million view threshold on YouTube. Her reputation, and proven versatility, is also leading to brand work for several companies, including Stella Artois, Hallmark, and Amazon.
Kali’s many past production skillsets and influences have seamlessly transferred into the branding and advertising space as a director. Her abilities as a writer and visual artist are drawing the attention of companies who are seeking enterprising filmmakers capable of bringing a vision to life from start to finish,” says Seed’s Founder, and Partner, Roy Skillicorn. He adds, “We’re constantly trying to earn our right to say we can do it all when it comes to making great content, and Kali seems to have all the talents to do so while also keeping her unique perspective.”
