Katey Darling Strategic Alliances
A producer and strategic alliance builder, Katey Darling has a passion for connecting and empowering creative individuals with the resources needed to successfully live their artistic purpose. Having grown up in Los Angeles, she completed her undergraduate education in San Diego, CA. There she graduated Cum Laude with 3 Bachelor of Arts degrees including Communications (Theatre), Musical Composition and Vocal Performance. After school, she spent several years working in the corporate world, primarily in public relations roles and corporate video production.
Katey has developed content and produced over 1,000 corporate and nonprofit videos for a variety of purposes and clients, including co-producing the Emmy Nominated PSA “Casa Colina” with Todd Covelli during their time together at Jobing.com. Highlights of her recent work are co-producing the launch of the North Hollywood CineFest, an annual international film festival in the heart of the world famous “NoHo Arts District,” and working freelance positions on a variety of Film/TV productions including projects with HBO, Paramount, Lionsgate, ABC (Shondaland), Amazon and Netflix.
As the owner of Deluzional Productions, a boutique entertainment company, Katey and her creative partners are developing innovative projects for the ever-changing media landscape. As a producer, she draws heavily from the philosophy of her theatre training, such as the premium value of ensembles and company troupes, believing that finding good people is like finding gold. As a SAG-AFTRA member, she approaches her projects with the understanding of both a producer and a performer, focusing on excellence not only in the end product but, also, in the creation of a positive culture within the production process itself.
When she’s not working on her next project, Katey also enjoys swing dancing, wing chun kung fu, songwriting, traveling and spontaneously joining any “puppy party” she can find in the park.
