Sound, Director, Self Shooting P/D, Editor
Jonathan is an editor and filmmaker with a background in sound editing and photography. He started his career editing sound and working on critically acclaimed shows and films such as ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ and ‘Band of Brothers’ then progressed on to cutting news, docs and interviews for CNN, Al Jazeera and CNBC. He particularly enjoys putting a story together in the cutting room – letting interviews, archive film and audio, stills and music tell the story.
Skilled in Adobe Premiere, Avid and Final Cut, he always keeps up with new technology and methods – recently he is particularly excited about Apple’s FCPX and the new way it approaches editing, letting the user build databases and paper edits all within one system.
Working in sound has informed his development as a picture editor – he learned what sound can achieve subconsciously, and how powerful dialogue can be when used sparingly. Clients include CNBC, MPC, Al Jazeera, CNN, BBC News, Bloomberg, BskyB, Skywalker Sound, Harper Collins, T.M.Lewin, De Lane Lea, Fox TV, Médecins Sans Frontières and the Press Association.
