Alcove Productions is a full service production company founded by Katie O’Grady in 2008. Alcove’s first feature film, Rid of Me, premiered in NY at the Tribecca Film Festival and received the NY Times Critics Pick of the week, going on to sell to Showtime, Amazon, Netflix, and become a cult classic. The meticulously crafted film set the tone for which Katie’s company has since become known, and Katie has become a sought after director and producer on the West Coast.
Alcove’s short films regularly garner coveted spots on the film festival circuit, and its commercials have won awards at international competitions. The team also produces music videos, and PSAs. Alcove is a start to finish production company that specializes in bringing creative thought to life!

Meet the Alcove Productions Family:
Katie O’Grady’s first foray into producing was the critically acclaimed New York Times Critic’s Pick film Rid of Me, hand selected by Michael Moore for inclusion in his Traverse City Film Festival, and purchased by Showtime and Netflix following its festival and theatrical release. Ten years later, after producing several more features, 15 short films, a variety of PSAs, music videos & commercials, and teaching acting for more than a decade, Katie decided to try her hand at directing. She cut her teeth on commercials, with her first placing at an international competition, then moved quickly into short films, and is gearing up for her first feature later this year. Katie has also written several of the projects Alcove has produced, and is currently adapting a book into a feature screenplay. She is known and valued as a team player, and her abilities are highly regarded by everyone from first time clients she walks through the process to seasoned industry veterans with whom she collaborates!
Chelsey Rae is proud to have attended the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics with a focus on dance and film.
