Jonathan first found fame for his revolutionary work on Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit’ and Jamiroquai’s Multi-MTV award winning ‘Virtual Insanity’ video. However 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 films for Wrangler, Stella Artois, Levis, Nike, Sony and VW.

In 2000 Jonathan directed Sexy Beast which was nominated for Best British Film by BAFTA.

His most recent work includes a spot for Audi, and the release of his third feature 'Under The Skin' starring Scarlett Johansson.
