Courtney Brookes (AKA Bourtney Crookes) is a bright, bold and unapologetic new voice in the commercial film industry. Through her colourful and unique campaigns, she creates vibrant worlds we all wish we lived in. She explores the weird, nuanced, and downright gorgeous.

Her unique way of looking at the world has gained wide critical attention. Since joining Eight in 2020, Courtney has won SHOTS New Director of the year, AWARD Awards Emerging Director of the Year and has been shortlisted for Ciclope Asia Pacific New Talent.

With a passion for production design, Courtney loves to get involved with all aspects of the production and she is dedicated to having majority female-led crews on all her productions. Her work aims to inspire the next generation of females and underrepresented filmmakers through her individual and unapologetic voice that oozes out of the frame.

Courtney has built a portfolio of work beyond her years, curating an international network of clients including L’Oreal Paris, Lexus, Bumble, Wolf Blass, Sony EMI and Warner Music.
