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 Google Android and the Channel 4 rebrand created for 4Creative.
In 2000 Jonathan directed Sexy Beast which was nominated for Best British Film by BAFTA. This was followed 4 years later with Birth, staring Nicole Kidman and Lauren Bacall. His 2014 film, Under The Skin stars Scarlett Johansson and is an adaptation of Michel Faber's 2000 novel of the same name. Under The Skin received 2 BAFTA nominations and won critical acclaim as a 'landmark in filmmaking'.
