Ali Brown brings her expansive knowledge of industry production and creative storytelling to the screen as the President of PRETTYBIRD and Ventureland. Through her creative eye, PRETTYBIRD’s work continues to be recognized on the global scale, winning awards and accolades from Cannes Lions, One Show, Clio Awards, D&AD, and the AICP Awards, as well as being named Ad Age & Creativity Magazine's Production Company of the Year, twice.
Brown has also taken her experience as a multi-platform producer to Ventureland, a creative studio she co-founded alongside Oscar-winning producer John Battsek and PRETTYBIRD partners Kerstin Emhoff and Paul Hunter. In addition to the company's current projects The Deepest Breath and Beckham, she is in production on both scripted and unscripted projects, as well as branded content slated for national and international release.
Brown has also served two terms as AICP/West President and AICP Show chairperson for 2020 and 2021. She notably served as the President of the Young Director’s Award Jury in Cannes 2018 - making her the first female president in the show’s 21-year History.
In 2020, Brown created “Double the Line” – an initiative supported by AICP’s Equity and Inclusion Committee, which gives production and post-production companies, agencies, and clients the ability to create access and opportunity for BIPOC crew. Brown, together with Kerstin Emhoff, was also named a finalist for Creativity’s Diversity & Inclusion Champions of the Year for 2021.
