Amanda Jenkins


"Everyone wants to be a director when you start film school," says Amanda Jenkins, "However I seemed to fall naturally into the producing side of things." After studying film at Canterbury University's Ilam School of Fine Arts, Jenkins climbed the industry ladder to become a respected producer of both local content and international commercials. She has produced a number of successful short films, including Closer which was nominated for the top award at Cannes  and Loading Doc The Scam. As a line producer and location manager, she has supported many adverts shot in Aotearoa and abroad, through her company AJ Films. 

... someone who exudes reliable professionalism ... Her ability to problem solve and juggle multiple objectives have made our projects just work. Working with Amanda is like working with a well-oiled machine... A testimonial from AJ Films client Younju Kim, global marketing director of Korean company Descente Global Retail
