Writer + Director + Storyboard Artist

Having studied architecture, writing and fine art, Cate Devaney began her career in film working as an art director and storyboard artist while also writing and directing her own projects. Through sketching her own concepts, she created a storyboard portfolio that drew the attention of director Scott Derrickson who hired her as his storyboard artist on SINISTER, DELIVER US FROM EVIL and Marvel’s DR. STRANGE. Throughout her ten-year career, Cate has worked in television, commercials, and feature films collaborating with many notable writers, directors and producers, including Tommy Schlamme, Alan Taylor, David Gelb, Michael Showalter, Joe Robert Cole and Akiva Goldsman.

Cate wrote and directed on her directorial debut, THE MAD HATTER, in the summer of 2019 and completed the year writing and directing on the horror anthology, 50 STATES OF FRIGHT, produced by Sam Raimi for the new mobile platform, Quibi. Both projects are currently in post production.

From an early age Cate's interest in storytelling ran parallel to her interest in the visual arts and in 2017 she obtained a manager and launched her professional screenwriting career.

Cate is the co-host of CA Hoots; a podcast where she and fellow screenwriter, Ben Collins, pitch ideas for movies based on fake titles.
