VAN NUYS, Calif.—Digital Playground has brought veteran writer/director Kay Brandt aboard as the newest member of its creative development team.
Brandt is a 20-year film industry professional with a multi-faceted background in business, development and production. She owned a profitable theatre company in Los Angeles, created and developed interactive concepts for major mainstream film studios, produced independent features with A-list directors attached, and was the head of acquisitions for the media division of a Venture Capital firm.
In 2009, Brandt became the lead writer/director for leading all-girl adult studio Girlfriends Films, and followed that with a brief stint overseeing publicity and production at Metro Media. Having a passion for true erotica and quality adult moviemaking, working with the company gave her first hand experience in the art of making premium niche products, and not simply adult movies. Within a few months of joining the respected and top ranking company, she gained a large following of dedicated fans.
"I couldn’t be more excited about finally getting to work exclusively for the incredible filmmaker Joone and brilliant business woman Samantha Lewis," Brandt said. "After more than a decade of me and Joone seeking out mutual projects to work on together, we’ve found a great opportunity to actually make it happen. The timing was perfect for both of us. I’m getting to work for a great friend with great vision. He supports and yet challenges me to constantly go further with the creative process and innovate. Digital Playground is an evolving company filled with wonderful and talented people. Robby D. is an awesome one to write for and I look forward to directing in the future as well. I feel very fortunate to be here."
Digital Playground founder and director Joone is equally pleased with the creative team expansion. He said, "We are expecting big things from Kay Brandt. Her stellar reputation in both the mainstream and adult film world precedes her."
Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground CEO, echoes Joone's sentiments: “Kay Brandt has produced some incredible work for other studios and her contributions will only increase the mass appeal of the Digital Playground brand.”
Brandt has already completed several feature scripts, and her first project will be released in January 2011.
