Catherine Black (she/they) is a Canadian-American director, actor, artist and educator with 30 years of experience in front of and behind the camera. A professional actor since 1994, Catherine is best known for American Psycho, The Donner Party, Odyssey 5 and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Catherine first realized she wanted to direct while being directed by Mary Harron in American Psycho. Catherine is a certified acting teacher, having studied various acting/movement techniques, now teaches an immersive, fast and comprehensive acting system that works with any acting approach. Catherine’s extensive practice as an actor and artist has rooted their vision in filmmaking. She was lucky to shadow a few talented directors early in their career, and went on to produce commercials, short films and music videos before directing their first narrative film in 2012. Catherine's films have won awards and acquired worldwide SVOD/VOD distribution. Known for a strong use of color and bold imagery, Catherine loves to write and direct dark comedy, horror and thriller, but is also driven to tell a good drama. Catherine has great insight directing actors but their real gift is the ability to capture and convey the subtlest nuances of human emotion on screen.
