Independent Doc Filmmaker / Creative Facilitator
Hello, my name is Jenny - I'm a documentary filmmaker & cinematographer with a passion for community led storytelling & local change-making. I am working towards learning a collective, sustainable, community led practice which explores our relationship with one another, and with the natural world.
I currently live in the beautiful city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Alongside freelance projects, I work part-time as a mentor for Beacon Films - a production company that supports that talents of Disabled, Deaf & Neurodiverse filmmakers & film exhibitors. I'm also currently the resident filmmaker for the English Touring Theatre.
Before moving to Newcastle, I spent three years working OTOXO productions - an independent production company in Spain committed to socially-motivated, creative documentary filmmaking and training. During my time at OTOXO, we made four 30-minute documentaries for TV and festivals along with three strands of shorts, and one feature film that is currently in post-production.
Alongside my time spent filmmaking, I'm involved in a number of creative & community projects in the city, including co-founding the Community Kitchen at the Star & Shadow Cinema. I'm passionate about opening access to filmmaking, and to creativity in general, and would love the opportunity to collaborate on more community arts projects.
Wherever possible, I spend my time in the hills & mountains, & feel most at home in these natural environments. I've recently begun to experiment with using my camera to document some of my outdoor adventures on rock & on bike..more to come I hope!
