A highly motivated producer, directer and writer for film, Jonathan is best known for making visually striking, entertaining, and high-quality independent productions. Since 2011, Jonathan's projects, made under the banner of his production company, Bohemian Industries, have won 100+ festival and industry awards in a variety of categories.
As of October, 2015, his highest profile film project saw him as the creator, writer, producer and director of "An Evening with My Comatose Mother," which currently sits as the most awarded horror short film of all-time with 76 international festival and industry awards and over 100 festival selections.
In 2014, Jonathan also became the Founder and Director of FilmQuest, a new film festival that celebrates the majesty and might of genre cinema. The inaugural year was a hugely successful one, with hundreds of submissions generated in a matter of a few months, due in large part to the presentation of the festival, aggressive marketing strategy, and great dedication given to the filmmakers by all those involved. The second year of the festival saw it grow tremendously, with over 1,200 submissions from around the world, along with the distinction of being named one of the "50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" by MovieMaker Magazine for 2015.
Jonathan is currently in post-production on four new projects, which include the Doug Jones starring dark fantasy film "Kiss the Devil in the Dark," the Jack the Ripper meets Bride of Frankenstein thriller "Creatures of Whitechapel," and two music videos. All have been produced and directed by Jonathan.
Always paying attention to the details of a film's production, he believes that careful planning and organization on any project is essential to its success. Available are slick, extensive development packages developed by Jonathan for a feature film version of "Comatose Mother" and for several other film and television concepts.
