We’re delighted to announce that Jacob John Harmer joins both the Independent and Indy8 rosters.
Jacob blends the intimacy of documentary filmmaking with a naturalistic yet composed cinematography. The result is a visceral style that amplifies the poetry of the worlds in which he focuses his eye.
He graduated from the London College of Communication and continued building his technical skills as an editor where he cut shorts and promos. This process led his attention to shift towards branded content and fashion films.
Jacob now directs internationally for clients including Nike, Topshop, Microsoft, Vivienne Westwood and Vice, and with talent such as A$AP Rocky, Little Mix, Adwoa Aboa and Sky Ferreira.
Jacob has recently had a short commissioned by Nowness, and films featured at the MFFF, AIFFF and Aesthetica film festival.
