Jackie Oudney

The prospect of working with children may cause some directors to break down in tears, but not Jackie Oudney. Her ability to coax engaging performances from actors of all ages makes her an in-demand commercials director.

Having being honoured at Cannes, D&AD and the British Arrows, she’s popular with brands and awards panels alike.

Oudney’s comedic flair has also translated to the big screen with 2009’s French Film, starring a certain Monsieur Eric Cantona. Whether she’s working with young talent or enigmatic football icons, Oudney ensures a quality outcome.

WORK:
Bensons For Beds
"Be..."
Bensons For Beds finds comfort in familiarity with a gentle remix of last year's 'Be...' campaign. The brand goes beyond its usual cast of sleepyheads and tells us how a good night's sleep can help you seize the day. It's an agreeable depiction of work, play, and of course rest, but is it enough to spark fresh engagement with the brand?
