The Team

A little bit about us

We're Tom and Jaisica, the founders of Soho Media Club. We met at a media & entertainment show in Las Vegas two years ago and quickly discovered a common passion for connecting people.    


We share 3 key beliefs: Collaboration, Inclusion and Everyone having a Voice.  We saw an opportunity to create a club for those in the production, post-production and distribution community who share our beliefs and want to make the whole industry better.

Eleanor Grondin Mons 

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Eleanor is a script-supervisor and award-winning screenwriter. She moved from France to the UK permanently in 2018, after graduating from the Sorbonne (Paris III) and working as a development and production assistant at Flach Film, a Paris-based leading TV documentary production company. 


She’s since collaborated with French and British directors, resulting in several projects currently in pre-production, among which her first produced feature screenplay, co-written with second time director and actor Raphaël Neal. 

One of her scripts, “Sieda”, has won “Best Short Film Screenplay” at the Shorts TV competition in Cannes (edition 2018) and she is now in development for her first feature documentary, an anthropological film about the French island “La Réunion” in the Indian Ocean. 

She’s also been approached to write an adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ “The Night of the Iguana”, in contemporary settings. 


Fearless and passionate, Eleanor has travelled across the UK, mainland Europe, and to Africa, to follow projects she believes in, seeking to use her work to stimulate imagination and a sense of responsibility to positively impact our world and advocate for change.  


Before all that, she took a year to cross the European continent, by foot, simply because she wanted to.  


Her favourite drink is whiskey – neat, with a glass of ambient tap water on the side. 


Eleanor might come across as slightly smug at first, but don’t worry, she’s just French. And millennial. As the saying goes, “nobody’s perfect”.
