Born in London and raised in the Netherlands, Jonathan Herman mastered the trifecta from an early age: music (as a guitarist), photography and of course, film. With his instinct for translating small comedic moments brilliantly onto the big screen, his films are described as cinematic humour.
Throughout his career he has garnered many awards for his work including a Gold and Bronze Lion at Cannes and a special jury prize for Best Director in the Netherlands and France. His comedy feature film ‘Judeska In Da House’, shot for a shoe string budget during the covid lockdown, won the prestigious ‘Golden Calf’ audience award at the Dutch Film Festival in 2021.
He has had his hands full over the last year working on the 10 part ‘dramady’ series ‘Jos’, shooting commercials for Grolsch and the Dutch National Lottery and photographing portraits of notable Dutch figures for Amsterdam-based newspaper ‘Het Parool’. Jonathan certainly cannot, and will not, stop.
