About me

 

"Jonas isn't of Nordic descent, but his story is almost as cool. He was sorta born to a pack of wolves in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies ... hence why you'll find he's rarely cold and has perfectly formed K9s. The eight months of winter provided numerous opportunities to write some words on a page and roll some film. This led him to believe that submitting a music video for a sculpture project at Art College was at the very least a 'B-' idea (he actually got an A+). The world seemed so much bigger then and it was clear he wanted more, which led him to chart a course south to the island country of Australia - a place where the sun shone just about every day, the locals sounded like pirates and the birds howled like monkeys. ‘Why not?’ he shrugged, as he dumped his rucksack full of dirty clothes. He continued to practice with a few more rolls of film before he managed to chew into his first piece of ad work. Realising his howls were losing their pitch he once again charted a course for more - another island full of English people. Except this time they sound like the Queen and for some reason the sun hardly shines ... he secretly likes that. He's recognised as an open-minded and imaginative collaborator who enjoys working closely with an agency throughout the entire production process - most importantly he has a lot of fun doing it. In the last few years Jonas has amassed an array of off-beat work that highlights his intuitive eye for casting and his ability to inspire memorable comedic performances. Anyway, it goes without saying that he has a penchant for perfectly-timed wisecracks and holds a plethora of awkward pop-culture references in-between his ears. He loves telling stories, especially downright funny ones, and all he wants to do in life is make people 'laugh-cry' more than they do currently. In order for that to happen he needs to team up with a sweet wolf pack … which loosely translates to a 'production company who kicks ass at comedy'." P.S. Jonas is in the middle of writing a dark comedy TV series, only cooks with an apron on and has absolutely no relation to those talentless ass clowns known as the ‘Jonas Brothers’.
