Since college, he’s worked as an advertising copywriter helping the public know which toothpaste to buy. Two years ago, he formed Untucked Films, an independent production company with three other directors, making comedy shorts, music videos and commercials. With Untucked, Jonathan has made a short about fans of the band Arcade Fire that Entertainment Weekly’s blog called “brilliant.” He also made a movie about parents half-heartedly searching for their missing baby that horrifies his wife. This is his first time entering a festival.
