Jack Jewers is a BAFTA-nominated, Royal Television Society award-winning director, working in film, television and advertising.

His short films have been screened both in and out of competition at major international film festivals in Cannes, Toronto, Marseille, London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Miami, New York, and Washington D.C. 

Jack’s numerous short film credits include ‘Shalom Kabul’, a comedy-drama about the last two Jews of Afghanistan, and ‘Storm’, a WW2 drama for which he was nominated for best short film by BAFTA Wales. Jack’s television work includes ‘Define Normal’, a five-part documentary series that was shown over a week in a special season on BBC2.

In 2014 Jack directed and produced the first ever web series based on a young adult book outside the USA. Night School: the Web Series made international news on its week of release in December of that year, including a cover story in the Guardian newspaper and a feature in the Daily Dot. Its YouTube channel has received well over a million views on YouTube.


In 2015 Jack and the cast of the web series were special guests for a
sellout panel at MCM ComiCon in London, virtually unprecedented for an indie web series. Night School was later shown in competition at 13 film festivals. Night School has recently been optioned for development for US television.

Jack has been invited to speak about his work at several major film and TV industry events, including Series Mania in Paris, and the Marseille Web Fest. In 2016 he was chairman of the jury at the Dublin Web Fest. Jack is also the founder of Trailermade Films, a production company specialising in high quality short form content for online and TV.  

Jack is currently working on his first feature film, which he can’t wait to tell you all about.  He lives just south of London with his wife, the bestselling author CJ Daugherty, a small menagerie of pets, and a friendly ghost. 

But that’s another story.
