About Kat

If you’re here, you want to know more about me. Only prob­lem is, I don’t really like talk­ing about me. So, I’ll just give you the basic run­down, and maybe some­day I’ll have some friends give me quotes to put on this page, so that it seems a bit more like you’re get­ting to know me, and not just read­ing my ‘about’ page…

Here goes:

  • I recently was awarded my Mas­ter of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion in Dig­i­tal Media pro­gram at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton. I’m head-over-heels with this program–it’s truly amaz­ing! Net­work the­ory, social media, law, cod­ing, film­mak­ing, and mobile devices. Everything’s there, all wrapped up in one big ball of awe­some goodness.
  • Until my recent full-time stint at the U, I was a pro­fes­sional per­former. Act­ing, singing, dancing–the works. I still per­form when I have time, but time is a strictly lim­ited resource in my lit­tle world right now.
  • I am the first Pro­gram Coor­di­na­tor for the new MCDM Fel­lows pro­gram, which is really exciting!
  • I have recently (thanks to the MCDM) become obsessed with “trans­me­dia sto­ry­telling.” I see it as the direc­tion that media pro­duc­tion is rapidly headed.
  • I am an invet­er­ate geek. I actu­ally *like* writ­ing code. It’s meditative…

About the blog

Much like an avalanche, the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion is unstop­pable. Logistikat.com is an open, curated dis­cus­sion about how Seat­tle inde­pen­dent film­mak­ers can learn from, and take advan­tage of, the oppor­tu­ni­ties that this new dig­i­tal media land­scape pro­vides. From first script drafts to trans­me­dia release mod­els, I hope to spark debate on best prac­tices for new media con­tent pro­duc­tion at all stages, focus­ing on how to get the best results with micro-budgets and lim­ited local staffing.
