JILL ROTHMAN (Producer) is an accomplished and award-winning Producer of Televison and Film. The winner of a Cannes Golden Lion Award, the NY Film Award, the TV Gold, a prestigous Clio Award, and an Emmy Nomination, Jill began her professional career as an intern for MSG Network, and though she’s still an avid New York Rangers fan, she made the move over to advertising.
Jill started as an Assistant Producer at Compton Advertising, and within two years, joined J. Walter Thompson as a Producer. Right away, she was producing award winning commercials and campaigns for Kodak, Unilever, Bell Atlantic, and a live TV campaign for Prodigy. In her spare time, she worked on independent films.
She then went on to DDB Worldwide as an Executive Producer, where for the next five years, she worked on campaigns for Johnson & Johnson, ING, Anheuser Busch and The American Stock Exchange.
In 2004, Jill returned to JWT as a Director of Production. In addition to producing global campaigns for Unilever and spots for T. Rowe Price, Jill produced hugely successful integrated campaigns for Domino’s and Diamond Trading Company. She also consulted on the Barnes and Noble book: “Spark Your Career in Advertising.”
Throughout her career, Jill honed the craft of storytelling. So it’s no surprise Jill embraced new media platforms, and over the last few years, has been producing long format content, particularly for the web.
