Drager Films makes films about complex women to show every colour of the human experience to both women and men. Its projects look to change the way we see gender in our culture through inspiring and thought-provoking stories that will ultimately change society’s perception of women through storytelling.
Jacquie Drager is a writer and director living in London. Having come from a background of Construction Engineering and Business, Jacquie draws from the experiences she had in a heavily male-dominated work culture and tells stories through film about intelligent and complex women – many of whom don’t see themselves often represented on screen.
Jacquie is presently writing a miniseries and developing her feature length screenplay, Scotch Eggs, which she will direct.
Working with Jacquie
“It was an absolute joy to work with Jacquie. She directed with clarity, was economic with her words and always invited questions and challenges. She was calm and a great energy on set. I think she made everyone feel at ease and therefore at optimal creativity. There was always an open channel of communication and we worked together, as a team.” – Harriet Green, Actor
“Jacquie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly organised, with detailed shot lists and extremely helpful in terms of planning the schedule. She was a consummate professional who had a lovely relationship with the cast and crew. Jacquie collaborated brilliantly with her DOP, but I was most impressed by how she was with her cast. You could genuinely see an improvement in performance with every take through Jacquie’s notes. She’s a very likeable person and showed great kindness and humility throughout the shoot. She had a very clear vision for the film, which I believe she has achieved and I very much look forward to working with her again in the future.” – David Bispham, 1st AD
