See what Kate's been up to lately.

Award-winning Director!

Kate’s trip to Korea for the Seoul Webfest was a great success, not only for the amazing memories of a country she may not have visited otherwise but because she walked away with a Best Director award for Ren: The Girl with the Mark!

That’s a wrap on Harry and Grace!

I’m both excited and sad that my time on Harry and Grace is over.  It’s been a wonderful experience and so fantastic to get my teeth into an acting role again after what feels like forever.

New Website!

Welcome to my brand new website. It’s currently under construction and is bound to take me a while to finish but here goes nothing.

A Filmmaker’s Journey: Interview with Kate Madison – Festival in the Shire Journal

A Filmmaker’s Journey: Interview with Kate Madison by Colin Duriez, Festival in the Shire Journal

“When I was looking for a story to do I found those few paragraphs and the idea of a film about Aragorn’s parents and where he came from seemed a great idea. Aragorn is such an important character in The Lord of the Rings but we know hardly anything about him until he turns up in The Prancing Pony in The Fellowship of the Ring.”

As an actor and filmmaker, Kate Madison is mostly known for directing, producing and acting in her Lord of the Rings prequel, Born of Hope, released on the internet in December 2009. In 2003 Kate set up Actors at Work Productions as a banner for various creative projects linked mostly to Stage and Film work. Kate directed her first narrative film in 2005, a short called “Into the Darkness”. Born of Hope is reviewed in this issue. Kate was interviewed by Colin Duriez for Festival in the Shire Journal.

Born of Hope. What is that I hear you ask? Well, allow me to enlighten you. Long ago in a country far away a cinematic version of Lord of the Rings was filmed by a little know man called Peter Jackson. Now with news of The Hobbit soon being in all cinemas near you Born of Hope has crashed its way into the wonderful world of Middle Earth films.

Directed, produced, production managed, location scouted and prop & costume managed by the wonderful wizard Kate Madison, Born of Hope is a big time film with a small time budget that introduces us to the life of Aragorn’s people before the power of the dark lord Sauron became overwhelming however throughout this mini epic his power is steadily rising.
