His poignant film starring Barbara - in conjunction with Age UK - shines a light on the increasing problem of loneliness in the elderly. The immersive film takes us into Barbara's world, suddenly silent after she lost her husband and daughter in quick succession, and is immensely effective in allowing us to see what a difference the charity's 'befrienders' made at a critical moment.
On the narrative end of the spectrum, Hopewell's work for Western Union demonstrates his ability to combine vibrant imagery to create a compelling visual story.
With a voiceover encouraging the viewer to get out and experience life to its fullest, Hopewell's visuals ensure increasing your get-up and go looks like an appealing prospect.
Bare's Joint MD Clare Timms is excited to welcome Hopewell to the team - and to their upcoming new director showcase in March.
Timms said of the signing: "We are delighted to be launching Jacob. From the moment we saw his work we knew he was a real talent, from beautifully crafted documentaries to visual storytelling and narrative. He's incredibly smart and hard working, and we are super chuffed that he's part of the new director showcase at Shoreditch House."
