Working with Jacquie
“It was an absolute joy to work with Jacquie. She directed with clarity and always invited questions and challenges. She was generally actor centric in her approach: curious about and adaptable to our processes and always allowed us space to play and discover.” – Harriet Green, Actor
“Jacquie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly organised and 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.” – David Bispham, 1st AD
