VICE

Katy is Head of Video at VICE AU/NZ —a global youth media company operating out of 30 countries globally, and industry leader in producing and distributing the best online video content in the world. Katy oversees production of VICE Australia and New Zealand documentaries, which are distributed across the company’s owned and operated channels. Her four-year tenure with the company has led her to produce work on a bizarre array of immersive stories across the globe (from professional eating in Nevada, to the billion dollar cockfighting industry in the Philippines). Locally, she produced the VICE series Over-Represented, exploring the Indigenous experience of imprisonment in Australia, which aired on ABC2 in 2016. In 2017, Katy supervised the production of two tentpole digital series for both Australia and New Zealand – Australianaand Zealandia. Katy also plays an integral role in VICE’s recently launched TV channel – VICELAND, which launched in Australia and New Zealand at the end of 2016. Globally, the channel is overseen by Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, a long-time VICE partner and creative director for the company.
