CREATIVE DIRECTOR

FILMMAKER

WARLOCK


Valentine Freeman is a conceptualist and multidisciplinary creative in film and advertising. Her film work has received the Sundance NEXT Innovator Award and been recognized among the Best Films of Sundance 2018 by Roger Ebert. Her work in branded entertainment has garnered three Cannes Lions, three ADC Cubes and four Clios. She serves on several industry juries and diversity panels -- including Cannes Lions, ADC, Altitude Summit, CAA Global Fellows and the 3% Movement -- and as a professional mentor to young female and queer creatives.


With a dynamic background in art direction, writing, creative strategy, branding, product design, styling, interactive digital, animation and publishing, she communes with small and large villages of thinkers to create and execute big ideas with abandon and totally unwarranted confidence.


Valentine also thrives in cavewoman isolation as a writer, ideator and world-builder. A curatorial, ravenous approach to information, zeitgeist and unlikely pairings informs Valentine's incomparable aesthetic and holistic thinking.


With early career focus on xeroxed Greyhound tickets, moldy punk houses, teen lesbian drama, Pall Malls, stray cats and Mad Dog Orange Jubilee, Valentine has also worked as an academic archivist, pizza cook, nanny, writing teacher, shop girl, data entry clerk, bartender, maid and organ player.


Valentine recently worked as Costume Designer on We The Animals, a Sundance Lab feature based off Justin Torres' New York Times best-selling novel of the same title. She's currently developing a podcast about arguing, a sci-fi coming of age film, and a television show about a cat from space. She lives and works under the auspices of Other Animals, Inc. in Los Angeles with her sweetheart and a blind cat named Muffin.
