During her career, she’s worn many different “hats” including Head of Factual, Head of Development, Executive Producer, Producer, Director, DV Shooter, Editor, Scriptwriter, and Development Executive.
Jeanie’s been a long-standing member of BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television), and has appeared at screen industry events around the world, notably the Edinburgh International Television Festival, Realscreen, BANFF, MIPCOM and MIPTV, the Australian International Documentary Conference, and the Adventure Travel Film Festival.
She’s listed by BBC Media Action as a highly-experienced Consultant Producer and has UN Advanced Security in the Field Training for working in challenging and remote environments.
As UNICEF UK’s Television Manager, she worked on film and TV projects with high-profile UNICEF Ambassadors including Ewan McGregor, Tom Hiddleston and David Beckham as well as acclaimed Channel 4 documentary Children Of War and the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning The Boy On The Bicycle, both highlighting the plight of Syrian refugee children. And as Amnesty International’s Digital Program Manager, she filmed and produced content for a range of high-profile human rights campaigns.
From 2018-2020, Jeanie worked at Screen Australia in Sydney, managing a diverse slate of documentary features, broadcast and SVOD series, digital and VR projects and running commissioning initiatives with domestic and international broadcasters including the ABC and Al Jazeera’s highly-acclaimed Witness documentary strand.
Since early 2021, she’s been based on the Far North Coast of NSW, Australia, working for non-profit Screenworks as their Industry Development Manager, creating programs and initiatives for drama, feature film and documentary filmmakers in regional, rural and remote Australia.
