Jack Whiteley

A Shropshire lad...

Hi, my name’s Jack.

I like to make films. Short films. Music videos. Commercials. Maybe a feature one day. You name it.

I was born a wildling from Shropshire. I studied at the Manchester School of Art where I gots me a first. I honed my craft in the great port City of Liverpool where I self shot, cut and directed all my work. I also learnt to shake my egg, pretend to DJ and moonwalk like MJ at the legendary Kazimier club (RIP).

In 2013, I got nominated for a Young Director Award at the Cannes Lions for my Mikhael Paskalev ‘Jive Babe’ promo. Shortly after, I signed with Rattling Stick, who are a well good London production company. I then moved to the Big Smoke like everyone else and started drinking flat whites. In 2015, I directed my first TV commercial for a Weetabix brand relaunch through BBH London. That same year I also won a UKMVA for my Staves ‘Black & White’ promo, got featured in the inaugural 1.4 Showcase and was selected for the Shots 25th anniversary ‘Best New Directors’ collection.

This past year, I have mostly been travelling and taking photographs, as well as making a string of odd music videos for Spring King. Who are wildlings from Manchester.

Love + kisses,
