About Jason

With fourteen years of stills photography and television commercial experience behind him, Jason R. Johnston has quickly became a sought-after and talented cinematographer whose work on many award-winning short films, including the 2009 psychological thriller Twisted Date and 2010 sci-fi drama Coming Home, have earned him awards for cinematography.

The experience gained in short subjects have given Jason the opportunity to work on several independent feature films including Gone Hollywood (2011), starring Fernando Carillo (Spin, Pit Fighter) and The Scavengers (2012), starring and directed by Valente Rodriguez (George Lopez).
