From a very young age, Jonty has had a fascination for the moving image, experimenting with video and super 8 film in his. Following film school at LIFS in London, he began his directing career in television making promos for BBC, MTV, Discovery Channel and UKTV. Alongside his professional work in advertising he has directed several portrait documentary series for Discovery Channel, National Geographic and France 5.
In his advertising work, Jonty is always striving to create situations that come across as extremely honest and authentic. He extracts scenes within often restrictive and controlled situations that come across completely spontaneous and unrehearsed. His particular style has led him to work with global brands such as Nike, Ford, Mini Cooper, Coca Cola, Lipton Ice tea, Cathay Pacific, Hershey’s Chocolate, Molson Canadian, and Captain Morgan Rum. His campaigns have won him numerous international advertising awards including Cannes Lions for his Nike + and Molson Beer campaigns.
Jonty lives in London.
