Hey I’m Kate Ferguson! I’m a Los Angeles-based writer, filmmaker, actor, photographer, and freelance social media consultant, so—many things creative media and storytelling.
I recently directed my second short film STUFFER, which I also wrote and produced. This follows my first entitled SUNDAY. I’m in post-production on a dramatic short film called Ruffin It’, in which I star, co-wrote, and produced, and a short film called Steel Trap, in which I co-star, co-wrote, and produced. I have a variety of original full-length scripts in the works including feature films and hour-long pilots.
Recent 2022 acting work include the short films Shame-Full and Pitchers.
Other projects include working as a producer and second unit camera operator on the music video Tori Deal and Jordan Wiseley: Love is Cruel, and acting in the TV mini-series This Place is Weird. I hired to write the finale episode of a cartoon, was previously a staff writer on the comedy web series Brunch So Hard, and worked as a BTS on-set interviewer for the YouTube channel Samantha Sessions.
I have a variety of experience on all sides of the camera. MORE ON IMDB.
I created and blog at the arts & lifestyle site Divvy Mag, which these days blends features, blog posts, and personal essays on topics like people, places, photography, style, sustainability, design, living well. The blog is based in Los Angeles and features global content. Feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in working with me: email@example.com
I’ve been shooting film since I was a kid and hold it deeply in my heart. Love 35mm and 120 film. Especially if it’s expired or experimental. (I also shoot DSLR, when that’s more appropriate.)
My photographic work has been chosen an Official Selection at the Photography Awards by The TINCAN Magazine 2022, an Official Selection and showcased at New Jersey’s The One Minute Film Festival within the Northeast Film Festival 2022, and an Official Selection at California’s Beach Cities Inspirational Film Festival 2023.
SOCIAL MEDIA CONSULTING
After working as a freelance writer for a number of years I quite literally fell into the realm social media. A tech startup hired me based on the creativity of my personal Instagram account, and I continued learning by doing. In the five or so years since, I’ve worked with other early stage tech startups in branding and social media marketing and management; been the CGO of L.A. based fashion line Strapped Mfg; and consulted on all things social media for a variety of influencers and business owners. Please contact me for a selected resume or more info.
I graduated from the University of California Davis with a BA in sociology (law emphasis), and a minor in English. I attended Austin School of Film’s Digital Video Certificate Program; am a certified reiki practitioner with First and Second Degree Usui and First and Second Degree Holy Fire III Reiki Ryoho; and have completed self-study programs like Google’s Digital Marketing and E-Commerce Certificate Program.
When I’m not working, I can usually be found writing, reading, doing yoga, taking photos of palm trees, reading under one of those palm trees, or intently researching something totally random like the history of Cheetos. (For the love of all things story!)
I live in Los Angeles, California with my cat Penelope.
