    About me

    Jonathon Crewe is an award-winning writer and director for film, theatre and radio.

    He founded The Human Factory filmmaking collective where he wrote and directed a number of award nominated short films, including the internationally exhibited sci-fi short Quantum.

    In 2010, his debut feature screenplay Donna4Eva was shortlisted for a David Lean Award and he was subsequently commissioned to write three feature screenplays for Fireback Films. He teamed up with various production companies where he wrote and directed three award nominated short films, culminating in the internationally acclaimed American Gun, distributed by Renderyard.

    He has also worked on radio drama where he has written and directed three feature length plays, Tangier, Toy Soldier and Entangled, all broadcast on Resonance FM.

    Jonathon was subsequently commissioned by WhoSaid? Theatre to adapt Toy Soldier for a two week run at the Brockley Jack Theatre. His follow up on the London stage, Under the Radar, premiered at The Bread and Roses Theatre in November 2019, to rave reviews and sell out performances.

    Jonathon recently finished shooting his debut feature film, Face2Face, which is currently in post-production, due for release in 2020.

    He is constantly looking to collaborate as a writer and / or director on exciting and thought-provoking new film and theatre projects.
