The Mill has announced it is expanding its global directorial roster with the addition of up and coming British filmmaker Jessica Bishopp.
Jessica’s docu-style is influenced by subcultures and myth, she explores universal themes embedded in our daily lives and thoughts within her work. Her work stands as a testament to crafting human stories and the nuances uncovered within. Examples of her work include The Art of Change Shorts: Identity / Like Me for The Barbican and An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Sussex for Nowness and PAMPAS for Channel 4 Random Acts which was also nominated for Best Documentary at BAFTA, BIFA and Oscar qualifying Aspen Shortsfest this year.
Previously independently represented, Jessica joins The Mill’s now 40+ strong global roster of directors across London, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Berlin.
The Mill’s head of content in London, Josh Davies comments: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Jessica into the Mill family. She is an incredibly talented and inspiring Director, who produces visually engaging narratives that will perfectly expand on and compliment our traditional commercial offering. Building intimacy with your cast is a talent that many directors strive to perfect, but one that comes so naturally to Jessica. As we continue to invest in our live-action and longform offering, Jessica will be a fantastic addition to our roster.”
On joining The Mill Jessica adds: “I’m looking forward to working with a great team; creating thought provoking, inspiring and visually exciting work. The Mill works on huge projects and I’m excited to learn from them and also bring my skills and vision as a director.”
