Jani Guest is the co-executive producer of Kidspiration.tv.
Jani is the Managing Director of Independent Films, which she co-founded in 2002 with a focus on representing some of the world’s most well known directors while at the same time developing the careers of previously unknown talent.
Independent Films is one of the few production companies to have won both a Cannes Lions Grand Prix and a BAFTA. In 2011, they were responsible for the award-winning Write the Future World Cup Football campaign for Nike. The campaign attracted 12 million hits on YouTube in the first 48 hours and it has since become the most awarded commercial campaign in history. In 2013, Independent picked up the BAFTA for Best British Short Film for Room 8, a branded content film sponsored by Bombay Sapphire gin, and the only brand-funded short film to ever win such an award.
Jani has worked with some of the world’s biggest commerical directors, in addition to lauded feature directors including, amongst others, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Cary Joji Fukunaga.
