Jonathan King


Ex-graphic designer Jonathan King learnt about filmmaking while directing more than 100 music videos, including NZ Music Awards best video nominee Behold My Kool Style. King’s feature debut was 2007 comedy horror hit Black Sheep, about GE sheep run amok. It screened around the world. He followed it with an adaptation of Maurice Gee sci fi classic Under the Mountain, and self-funded twister REALITi.

People like Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson were very inspiring to me ... they didn’t wait for their break, they went and made things. And now those guys, as it happens, are some of the biggest filmmakers in the world. Jonathan King, in an interview on website Filmlot
