Meet the director

Having honed her skills as a storyteller through her work as an editor for the last ten years (her most recent credits include CUCKOO and LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN), Jen's work as a director is visually stunning with a great clarity of vision. Her first voyage into directing was her short film ROCKET which went on to win the grand prize at the Virgin Media Shorts competition in 2012. Since then she has completed seven more award-winning short films, most of which she also wrote. Jen has just finished filming on her debut feature, ROSE, which tells the story of a husband and wife living off-grid to conceal a deadly disease. ROSE is part horror, part love story, written by Matt Stokoe (MISFITS, JAMESTOWN), who will also play the role of Sam. In the commercials world Jen (as part of Afloat) was nominated for a D&AD New Director award in 2017. Her adverts have all been rated three stars and up on David Reviews. She's represented by Robert Taylor at The Artists Partnership for Television and features.
