Co-Editor


Jamie Madge co-edits shots with Danny Edwards. He conducts written and filmed interviews with some of the world’s top creatives, directors and producers, as well as producing extended features on regions, techniques and trends within the advertising community.

He also oversees the compilation of shots' ground-breaking Unsigned, focussing on global unsigned directorial talent, and curates the regular Unsigned screening nights that have travelled the globe.

Alongside that, Jamie has presented panels and screening on branded content as part of the D&AD, Raindance, El Ojo and Rushes Soho Shorts festivals, and recently chaired a discussion with Martin Campbell at the Cannes International Festival Of Creativity, so basically met James Bond or something. He has also sat as a judge on many advertising and film awards, including Radar Music Video, the UK MVAs and Reed Short Film. And the shots awards, natch.

Jamie loves musicals, loves comic books and loves Marmite. He has a lot of love. He also thinks that if you don't like the film Back To The Future, it's difficult to believe you like anything.
