Columbia Tatone is an American film director, writer, producer and photographer. Known for her dynamic cinematic action and relational, relevant storytelling, she often features unique elements of sci-fi in her work. Tatone studied Jazz at Berklee's College of Music in Boston and later received her Business degree in Southern California at Vanguard University (Beta Gamma Sigma Honors). With her unique background and experience as a writer and producer for short-action films and music videos, she has cultivated her passion as a film director.
As a commercial, music video and narrative director, Columbia empowers her audience through eye-popping, thought-provoking action sequences. She represents these qualities in pieces like Olay's "Pilot Life," CBS Sports “I AM...Mike Lee" and RedEye Inc’s “Building Legacy”, where Tatone shows viewers that success is not defined by a jersey or a title, but by our unique gifts and talents. As a champion for women and the underrepresented, Tatone often uses her work to promote social justice while also taking us into different realities.
Columbia has been featured in industry magazines such as Flaunt Magazine for her Mike Taylor music video “Colours,” which celebrates global diversity; and Post Magazine and Billboard Magazine for her Pop Evil music video “Colors Bleed,” which pays homage to the #MeToo movement.
