Meet the Filmmaker

What is their why?

“In a fractured and short-attention media environment, this film went long. A 12-minute film that tells a rich story provides a unique opportunity to not just grab attention, but to connect deeply with the audience. Key to achieving this was finding a story that warranted 12 minutes of the audience’s times, and that’s exactly what Director Jess Colquhoun did. Shot on 16MM film and hovering between narrative and documentary, the project is rich in story, visually stunning, and strategically unique.”

Jess Colquhoun is an award-winning British film director and photographer who uses an emotive and naturalistic eye to tell human stories, reflecting her curious nature and passion for people, music and culture. She has recently been honored with a YoungGun award which recognizes the top 30 young directors in the world. Her approach to filmmaking reflects her passion for exploring her passion for people and subcultures, as well as social and environmental change and impact.
