JR aka Jeannette Robinson
JR aka Jeannette RobinsonDirector, writer and co-founder
JR aka Jeannette Robinson is a director, writer and co-founder of London Film Collective. Conceived originally as a vehicle for like-minded, aspiring filmmakers, LFC is made up of individuals who want to share their ideas and collectively help one another to realise their visions on film.

Originally with a background in theatre performance from Chicago, JR has worked in the film industry in London for over 7 years. Her journey began working for the UK Film Council and then she gained extensive production and post-production knowledge with her work at both Framestore and Prime Focus World.

Her work has evolved out of her love for both theatre and film. Combining the two, her first directorial debut after leaving Goldsmiths College involved using video elements with live action onstage. Her next project John and June was Arts Council supported as a workshop development piece, which toured both London and Brighton.

Her film projects for the Collective include both NINA and Going Out music video for The Desert Ships as director and writer. Her new project Have a Seat (which deals with mental health and addiction issues) currently in Development with the London Film Collective and is actively seeking funding.
