Jeana’s first commercial was shortlisted in the Cfp-Shots Young Director Award (YDA) at Cannes 2006 and she was part of a select few chosen amongst thousands of the world’s finest young directors to feature in the Shots Young Director’s issue 2007. Jeana then went on to feature on the cover of Shots magazine as one of SA’s up and coming directorial talents.
In her formative years, Jeana assisted Keith Rose and Greg Gray in the creative process in her role as Head of Velocity Research prior to joining the Bouffant roster of directors. The insight and practical knowledge gained over the years coupled with her technical artistic abilities, has provided the perfect platform for her to deliver cutting edge, visually captivating and relevant advertising.
Jeana has won a Gold Loerie for her spot for Cell C with well known South African Kwaito music star Zola and agency Net#work BBDO and recently Jeana won a bronze Loerie for an experimental piece for Suzaan Heyns in 2011.
