MJ graduated with a Double First from Oxford, so she must be smart. She knew early on that she wanted into the film and video world, and soon after graduation she put herself on the media map with NEWPORT STATE OF MIND, which became a YouTube viral sensation.
From there, she has been one of Broadcast’s Magazine’s “Hotshots”, and in the same year was voted “Best New Director” at the BTAA Craft Awards. Her first feature film, POWDER ROOM, was picked up for worldwide distribution by Universal Pictures at the Cannes Film Festival.
Her recent work has been, well, badass. Her redux of the Spice Girls “What I Really Want” Wannabe video for Project Everyone, promoting gender equality, garnered well over 100 million views in just over a week. Her commercial work for Avon, Nivea, Nando’s and many others is equally exciting.
MJ has won a lot of awards, but she will not tell you about that. Her humility is only matched by her infectious personality, and a work ethic second to none.
She is currently writing a new feature, working on some really cool TV projects and trying to smash the patriarchy. Moxie is very proud to be working with such a talented filmmaker.
