Jane enjoys leading large teams as well as managing her independent production company and is looking forward to developing more feature films and TV projects for audiences and platforms!
Jane grew up in central London, living above the Westminster Theatre in the West End. Surrounded by performance and production, Jane worked in every department from the Front of House to backstage and box office. She spent two summers in Switzerland, as stage manager for a conference centre theatre. Jane attended the Wimbledon School of Art; the University of Aberdeen (MA (Hons.) in English & Film); and London’s City University (MA in Arts Criticism).
Jane has over 20 years of experience in Film and Television production: both scripted and documentary, from entertainment and pop culture to independent films; and she is excited and fascinated by all aspects of production. Jane has produced for ET Canada, E! News, E! News Live, Entertainment Tonight UK and most recently the feature films All About Who You Know, Debug, and A Dog’s Breakfast.
Having already made A Dog’s Breakfast together, Jane and David formed Monkey’s & Parrots in 2012 to produce the Sci-Fi/Horror film Debug starring Jason Momoa. Co-developing the concept and script with David for him to direct, Jane then became heavily involved in many different areas including budgeting, second unit, coordinating with the editorial team and VFX producers, and delivering the film to the international sales team to present at Cannes in 2014.
Monkeys & Parrots is currently producing The Swearing Jar, a feature musical romance about “Love lost, love found, and love remembered…”, filming in Spring 2021.
Jane has also been part of numerous industry talent development programs including the Trans-Atlantic Partners and Strategic Partners, TIFF Producers Lab Toronto, EFM’s Producers Without Borders, and at Cannes.
