About Jonathan

Originally from Michigan, where I practiced the art of stop-motion animation, I now live near Savannah, GA, having just graduated from SCAD's Film & Television program. I have written, directed, and produced 5 of my own short films while attending: including my Senior project: "Bill & Maggie's Intergalactic Taxi Service." I also edited, and designed all of the visual effects for my Senior project, which is now half-way through through post production. I have a passion for creativity: designing new and exciting visuals for video and film projects, designing characters, props, and environments with my digital artistry skills, and creating voices to bring these characters and worlds to life. Whether it be editing, visual fx, storyboarding, concept design, voice over, or even Directing: I feel I would be an asset in any one of these areas.
