Jonathan is a young director/DP with a background in visual effects and graphic design. Before turning to directing full time, he was a CGI artist/graphic designer at top LA based VFX houses including Laundry, Logan, and Gentleman Scholar. His design background has very much informed his filmmaking and directing was a natural progression.
Though design oriented, at the same time, he is always looking to capture the moment, not in designed way, but with a very naturalistic found feeling. He often is wearing his camera and is really a part of whatever scene he is filming.
Jonathan has directed commercials for the past 7 years for clients including Samsung, Jockey, Corona, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Levi’s, Reebok, CA Lottery, Hilton Hotels and Pepsi.
