I've been working in production for more than 20 years.
I started off as a Junior Producer for a company called Harry Monk working alongside John Carver. (The Leisure Process, Cunning, Wildboar Films). Together we made a heap of TV and radio commercials for the music industry.
I left Harry Monk some 5 years later to set up my own production company, JJ Stereo Limited. It was pretty successful, but I felt the need to move on as I wanted to try and make a film.
Playground Pictures was initially set up to house two short film scripts which I wrote with my business partner, Louise Stewart. "Your Numbers Up" was backed by Trevor Beattie (TBWA) and produced by Karlene Page (Big Hug) and "Jenny", starring Patrica Quinn (Rocky Horror Picture Show), went on to win two short film awards.
I continued to work through Playground Pictures, writing, directing, producing ads, internet virals, etc. My business partner Louise decided to leave and go into Post Production full time, so we put Playground to bed.
At the moment I'm freelancing. I have just finished an EPK and Promo for Jools Holland. I'm pitching a few other projects, but really want a full time position working alongside other creatives. I'm a very sociable person, and really enjoy working with other people and making things happen.
I am a mother of three, thankfully they have all left home now, so it's just me and the two dogs!
Time to get out there and shine!!
