Jonathan first found fame for his revolutionary work on Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit’ and Jamiroquai’s multi-MTV award winning ‘Virtual Insanity’ video.
He is perhaps best known in commercials for 1999′s ground-breaking Guinness ‘Surfer’, which picked up 2 D&AD Black Pencils, a Gold at Cannes and the top spot at most of the other awards festivals that year. The film still tops many lists as one of the best commercials of all time.
Guinness aside, he has made iconic commercial films for Wrangler, Stella Artois, Levis, Nike, Sony, VW and many others. His most recent work includes spots for Audi, Nike and Canon.
In 2000 Jonathan directed Sexy Beast which was nominated for Best British Film by BAFTA. His third feature, Under The Skin, received the same nomination. It has been called a 'landmark film' and heaped with critical acclaim. Under The Skin stars Scarlett Johansson and is an adaptation of Michel Faber's 2000 novel of the same name.
