Jeff pops his podcast cherry!
We’re honored to host the podcast debut of director/editor/writer Jeff Jenkins, whose work spans short films (“Star Struck”), digital series (“MISSHAPS” with YouTube star Kristen Hancher, via Brat), and national commercials (Ace Hardware, Wienerschnitzel, Amazon) – all of it with singular flair and quirkiness.
Jeff lives in Los Angeles, and his formal biography describes him as a robot, “assembled in an abandoned automotive plant outside of Detroit, Michigan.” Somehow, his Midwestern suburban upbringing imbued him with a knack for marrying the real world to the bizarro world.
We explore the mysteries of monetization and the voluminous platforms for content, the topography of the modern ad biz, his first creative production roost CLA, and his frequent collaborations with ADDigital and OKRP.
Jeff recently wrapped Season 1 of his second influencer-driven digital series for Brat, called “Flunky’s Upset” (debuts 9/27) – starring former vine star Meghan McCarthy. Season 2 of “MISSHAPS” shoots in December.
