About Jonathan

I am a film-making graduate of Northampton University, with credits in four different courses. I also obtain five GCSEs; one in French, which I am semi-fluent in. I enjoy writing my own songs and film-scripts. I have a general interest in politics and sport. I have Asperger's syndrome, a mild learning disorder related to autism. However, I am confident that this will not affect my working abilities. I have obtained work experience credits in various film-related jobs. Between 2014-2015, I worked as a runner for 151 Films in Leicester, during two productions; a music video and an advert. Duties included moving equipment for each shot and purchasing food for the cast and crew. I have produced a number of short films which I have stored on YouTube. I obtain a huge passion for film-making which has developed since A-Level Film Studies. I have used a variety of software including Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and Movie Edit Pro. I am also a confident user of all Microsoft Office applications I am enthusiastic and prepared to learn new skills and contribute to the success of future productions.
