Named as one of Broadcast Magazine's Hotshots in 2012.

More than 2.5 million people watched MJ Delaney's video in just a couple of weeks making Newport (Ymerodraeth State of Mind), a gentle spoof of Jay Z's Empire State of Mind, one of the biggest internet hits of 2010.

Graduating from Oxford University in 2007 with a Double First in English, MJ has made films for Vivienne Westwood, BBC Online, Dazed & Confused, Comic Relief, PLAN International, The Observer and Big Brother. Her ad campaign for Aldi won multiple awards including 'Best New Director' at BTAA Crafts. In 2010 she was named as one of Company Magazine’s 30 Most Powerful Women in Television Under 30 and in 2011 was invited to speak at the Observer’s TEDx event.

In 2012 she directed her first long-form film BEN AND LUMP, an original half hour drama starring Thomas Turgoose which was broadcast on Channel 4 as part of the network’s Coming Up talent scheme.

In 2013 her feature film directorial debut, POWDER ROOM, was released theatrically by Universal, and will have its Home Ent release in March of this year.

She's currently developing new material for Element Pictures, the BFI and producer Damian Jones.  


For commercial and promo work she is represented by Moxie.
