Brooke Dooley | Producer

A Short Story

At eight years old, Brooke’s parents' divorce sparked a forceful independence and resiliency.  Even though she was surrounded by a loving and supportive family, she fell into destructive behaviors during high school that led her to an unhealthy lifestyle.  Brooke focused on her love for creating and submerged herself in studies at San Francisco State University's film program.  She craved real-world experience outside of academia that led her to an internship at the California Film Institute, a filmmaking fellowship with an independent documentary filmmaker, and a producer position at filmmaking co-op Scary Cow.  Her devotion to storytelling and her determination led her to produce over two dozen films before her 23rd birthday.  Her mastery of problem solving and delivering projects on time and under budget landed her a crew position on an all-male film shoot in Pakistan.  


Shortly after her stint in Southeast Asia, Brooke became an officer manager turned development executive at American Rogue (partner company to Aero Film), a prominent production house in Los Angeles.  She packaged long-form projects for branded sponsorship and mainstream distribution. After two years there, Brooke launched her own boutique agency and cultivated the creative talent of emerging directors.  Since 2009, she has produced over 150 projects for various clients including Google, ICANN, U.S. Navy, Hewlett Packard, BODYARMOR, Best Buy, Goodyear Tires, Samsung and The Salvation Army.


She continues to attach herself to projects that stimulate a visceral chord with audiences. She holds a distinct expertise in collaborating with top executives while concurrently supervising day-to-day production needs. Her approach as a producer is to listen, observe, absorb and implement. She loves to travel and has adventured to Japan, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, France and Pakistan.  She lives in Los Angeles with her Steadicam/Director husband Luke Rocheleau and their two children.
