Jonathan Weissler entered the film industry in the early 90's where he worked on films like Interview With the Vampire, Braveheart and Mission Impossible 1 as he climbed the production ladder.

Jonathan produced his first feature film in 1997 with the award winning "Time Enough" starring Dexter Fletcher and Foster Marks. The film went on to win best film at the Houston International Film Festival and make a healthy profit from its cinema and TV runs.

This launched Jonathan's producing career and he has since gone on to produce 24 feature films, a 10 hour TV miniseries and countless commercials around the world.
