D&AD’s Direction Jury President on what the industry can do to prevent homogeneity D&AD

Ali Brown is the President of production company PRETTYBIRD and co-founder of creative studio Ventureland, where her current projects include The Deepest Breath (2023) and Beckham (2023). Having started as a receptionist in the film and TV industry, Brown worked her way up to become an industry leader with global accolades including multiple D&AD Awards. 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. Here, 2024’s D&AD Jury President for Direction explains why she thinks taking a chance on new talent is well worth the risk and what the industry can do to prevent homogeneity.
