After graduating from University in London, Jess moved to Los Angeles for a film internship that led to a job as a Production Assistant on Jim Carrey’s THE MAJESTIC. Moving around various productions and working on set, her interests turned to casting as well as the business behind physical production and she took a job as Frank Darabont’s assistant at his company Darkwoods Productions. Eventually becoming his Creative Executive, she worked with Frank on THE MIST and as a Production Consultant on THE WALKING DEAD as well as on various projects in development. After 7 years with the company she moved to work briefly for Exclusive Media’s Los Angeles office in their Development department before moving back to London after 12 years away. She is now focussed on producing through her company Manor Hill Productions and encouraging the work of new film makers.
