Jon’s produced credits include the production drafts of ‘Paddington’, ‘Paddington 2’ and ‘American Animals’, ‘The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death’, ‘Desert Dancer’, ‘Fast Girls’ and ‘In Fear’.

‘No One Gets Out Alive’, a horror feature for Netflix and Imaginarium, is currently in production, and the feature animation ‘High in the Clouds’ based on a book with original songs by Paul McCartney has just been acquired by Netflix.

Current work includes ‘Time’s Fool’ for director Paul King, producer David Heyman and Fox Searchlight; a remake of ‘Witchfinder General’ for director John Hillcoat and producer Nicolas Winding Refn, and ‘Dislocation’ a six part TV ghost story for producer Jolyon Symonds.

He began his career on the ‘Harry Potter’ movies, working with directors Alfonso Cuaron and Mike Newell, and even managed to write his own spell. He then moved into script editing and worked with a wide range of filmmakers including Jane Campion, Pawel Pawlikowski and Joe Cornish, and on films such as ‘Berberian Sound Studio’ and ‘The Iron Lady’.
