I studied screenwriting at Film School in the UK, and was excited to begin my career as an intern at MTV, back when they still played music videos. I stayed for three years, leaving after directing two seasons of a series that I created and developed.
From there I went to the BBC, where I was the youngest director to work in the internationally-renowned documentaries department.
In the 15 years since then, I have directed for all the major networks: Discovery, BBC, TLC, as well as working with brands such as Nike, Louis Vuitton, Jaguar LandRover, and talent including Mohammad Ali, Snoop Dogg and Cardi B.
I currently live in NYC, where I own a boutique creative content company, Brookes & Sons
I’m repped by Shade Grant at ICM Partners, or you can contact me at YemisiBrookes@gmail.com
