- LOS ANGELES & NEW YORK
Bicoastal production company m ss ng p eces has added Jane Qian to its roster for U.S. commercial representation.
Qian’s work has been showcased in Buzzfeed, Nowness, and Vimeo Staff Picks, and received five Clio Sports Awards. She has earned the AICP+DGA’s Commercial Directors Diversity Program (CDDP) fellowship, made the cut for SHOOT’s 2019 New Directors Showcase (for her poetic short film, Phoenix), was named a Young Guns 18 finalist, and won a 1.4 Award for her visually arresting U.S. Paralympics spot, featuring two-time Paralympian medalist Colleen Young. Other brand client collaborations include Toyota, Arm & Hammer, Tesla, Nike, Chevrolet, and Disney. Prior to joining m ss ng p eces, Qian was repped in the American ad market by production house Knucklehead.
Qian is known for her bold poetic visual language inspired by elements of surrealism, which invites the viewer to peer through a different lens, cinematically unfolding stories through intimate emotions and evocative movement.
Born in Shanghai and raised in Los Angeles, Qian was intrigued by the power of storytelling and media at a young age. Drawn to topics of hope, audacity, and resilience, she is passionate about showcasing people and narratives that are often overlooked. Qian’s curiosity and deep fascination with human psychology draw her to socially conscious work, with a belief that impactful films can change the world.
Qian said, “m ss ng p eces has been on my radar as one of the best production companies for a long time. Their emphasis on creating conscious work that connects people aligns with what I want to continue doing, and everyone is so incredibly kind and supportive. The strategy and resourcefulness they bring to the table make me incredibly excited to partner with them.”
Kate Oppenheim, managing partner at m ss ng p eces, said, “I first encountered Jane’s work through the AICP’s CDDP program, where her standout talent was immediately evident. It’s such a joy to help develop this next stage of her career, and am looking forward to creating meaningful work together. Her distinctive voice, striking visuals, and authentic style are vital for the future of advertising.”
