Back in January 2022 we visited Jessica at her East London studio and chatted about her inspirations, ethos and plans for the future of sustainable denim brand I AND ME.
A two brother crew with a single lens, working with what light appeared on the day – sometimes a lot of fun to work that way. And an atmospheric score from Hugo (Brother Music) to complete the in-house tick list.

Brother Film is a creative production company, founded by brothers.
From making skate films on VHS as kids, Brother has developed into a production company based in Peckham, London. With a small core team and a tight network of world-class directors and crew, we pride ourselves on delivering creative work with good people.
We love seeing a concept through from idea generation to the final file upload, but are equally adept at jumping into a project at any stage.
Peckham is a big part of Brother’s DNA, and we started up a local event series, Peckham Filmmakers, to link up local creatives and hero their work.
Our sister company Brother Music is an award-winning music and sound studio, creating bespoke scores and soundscapes for both Brother’s work and a range of other directors, agencies and production companies.
We’re still enthusiastic skater kids at heart, and want that to bleed through into everything we do.
