Independent Doc Filmmaker/Cinematographer
My name is Jenny, I'm an award-winning documentary filmmaker & cinematographer with a passion for community led storytelling & local change-making. I welcome collaboration, experimentation & adventure in my work, and I'm happiest when working in wild/rural environments.
I've spent the last few years working with OTOXO productions, an independent production company in Spain committed to socially-motivated, creative documentary filmmaking and training. As one of just four members of the core team, my job has been a dynamic immersion into all areas of documentary production, and in the last two years alone we've made four 30-minute documentaries for TV and festivals along with three strands of shorts and one feature film still in production.
My other relevant experience includes working for many years as a mentor in film education & training, working in a variety of different film festival & exhibition roles, writing both critical and journalistic content, and volunteering in a string of very humbling long-term positions within charities and organisations supporting socio-economically vulnerable communities.
When I'm not filmmaking, I'm most likely to be found dangling off a rope, rock-climbing somewhere in the mountains. Wild and natural landscapes have been hugely formative in my development as a person, and they are the backdrop to almost all of the meaningful relationships in my life. I'd love the opportunity to collaborate with fellow female filmmakers with a passion for the mountains/outdoors.
I carry with me a joyful, optimistic spirit, a passion for audio-visual storytelling, a mind that is constantly curious, an eye for creativity in the everyday, and a tendency for laughter with everyone around me - if I can guarantee one thing about myself it’s that I’ll always have a smile on my face!
