Hi. How are you?

I'm Jonathan. I hope you're healthy and safe. Stay strong,

be courageous, and keep pushing forward.

If you've made it this far you're probably on my wavelength.

Let's stay alive and make some art. Maybe together?

My film team and I are in post-production on our first feature

documentary - The Sacred & The Snake. Our film chronicles the

personal journeys of three people from the resistance camps of

Standing Rock in 2016 through the present day.

 

In my free time I try to be a cool uncle, good brother, dependable

friend, and reliable freelance videographer/editor.

Here's to surviving a pandemic. Much Love,

Jonathan
