Canadian production company Radke Films signs comedy director Jono Holmes to its roster for exclusive representation in Canada.
Coming from an agency background, Jono Holmes was one of Canada’s most awarded copywriters before making the jump to directing. Born and raised in Vancouver, Jono began his agency career at Rethink Vancouver, creating classic spots for clients such Science World and BC Lions. As a senior copywriter, his work has been recognised at awards shows across the country and around the world; including Cannes Lions, The London International Awards, The One Show, The Effies and Communication Arts. Known for his ability to create killer comedic dialogue and relatable, often off-beat characters, Jono has won multiple copywriting craft awards and was ranked Canada’s Top Copywriter by Strategy Magazine.
In 2018, Jono made the switch from commercial writing to directing, bringing with him the same level of wit and insight to filmmaking that he did to his writing. Jono’s finely-honed comedy chops give him the ability to build memorable characters alongside hilarious dialogue delivery, ultimately striking the perfect comedic tone across all his work. A film junkie from a young age, Jono’s cinematic sensibilities are thoughtful and precise, and allow him to find the right cinematic approach regardless of the genre. Whether it’s creating realism for a poorly timed family finances meeting during a home birth, a fictional documentary about the physical manifestation of an obsolete feeling, or meticulously staging a classic cinematic diner scene just to turn around and literally blow it up, Jono’s ability to manipulate film language allows him to create the perfect settings for character and comedy to flourish.
In 2018 Radke signed Jono Holmes to exclusive Canadian representation, and in a short amount of time he has done outstanding work for clients such as Borrowell, Deloitte, Dare Foods, Tim Hortons and Heinz.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessRadke, Mon, 03 Sep 2018 09:09:49 GMT
