Founder – Jean Hogg (Married name Clack)
Jean began her career working in TV and film drama going on to work as an assistant director and production manager. Working in film production gave her a valuable insight into the mechanics of the film-making process. It also made her realise that she wanted to progress to a creative role in the industry.
With this in mind, she went on to study for an MA in Screen Direction at Goldsmiths College, London. Since then, she has directed independent productions, worked as a community and commercial filmmaker, along with teaching roles.
Jean has made many short film dramas and was awarded best female director at The Indie Fest for Into the Silent Land, which has now been developed into a feature film, Late Splitters, and is currently at script stage.
Jean recently directed one of eight segments (Watching), for The Haunted Hotel, IMDB, which is due for release later in 2018.
‘Not that I Remember’ a social issue film for The Matthew Project won a Social Marketing East Award.
Jean has extensive experience of working with hard-to-reach groups on social impact and community-funded projects.
She is skilled at creating an environment where everybody feels supported and comfortable which allows young people to better engage with a project. It is important for her to empower participants and create learning opportunities so that they can feel confident and inspired as well as raising their aspirations.
Jean has been a Trustee at Cinema City, Norwich, working with their education charity Cinema City Education since 2012 and also has a BA in Art and Related Arts.
