COLLLEN DAVIE JANES
Colleen graduated from Boston University film school, followed by a Sanford Meisner acting conservatory in NYC, and began working in film and television on the production side. She remembers her first job as a craft service PA with nightmares in the swamps of Louisiana, but things did get better after that. She has worked with such directors as Oliver Stone, Sydney Pollack and Brian DePalma, as well as M. Knight Shyamalan and Hype Williams on the commercial/MV side, all the while developing her own content. She has also produced for the top branded content agency DGNL in NYC. Her checkered past includes time as a below-the-line agent, a stand up comedian, a production coordinator and monkey trainer. Colleen was honored by SHOOT Magazine at the DGA as a “New Director to Watch”. In 2019 Colleen directed the film Ride The Wave, already receiving accolades on the festival circuit, and the tv pilot How Am I Doing, a dark comedy also in festivals and pitching to networks.
