Jonathan Fairey

Filmmaker and Owner at The Studio of Jon Fairey

Work Summary


Owner and Filmmaker

The Studio of Jon Fairey

I founded my film studio to create beautiful film resources for clients and agencies. We produce everything from top-level campaign branding to internal training resources for clients ranging from world's favourite brands and Grammy award-winning musicians to local charities.

We oversee all parts of the production process from scripting and logistics through the shoot to post-production and delivery, and work with agencies to deliver well-conceived, message-driven film content to their clients.

We have worked with Coca-Cola, Transport for London, Diageo, The NHS and Oxford University, as well as shooting at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show, the London 2012 Olympics and internationally throughout Europe and Africa.

Recent Work

A documentary showcasing Diageo's investment into water and sanitation projects around the world, filmed on location in Cameroon.

My responsibilities included pre-production (budgeting, story planning and crew logistics) as well as shooting in country and editing the final film.


A behind the scenes film for the Spirit of Christmas Fair in 2015. This showed the preparations that go into the fair, with all of the stalls being set up over two days before the fair opens. The film was shot in a single day and edited and graded within 24 hours for the client to release to coincide with the opening of the event.
