I’ve known Jonathan Schütz for more than a decade as an exceptional director/showrunner, writer, and script doctor. For nearly every year since 2007, Jonathan has worked on at least one project with National Geographic in Asia. He’s been instrumental in nurturing and grooming Asian production companies and talents, both from a field production and post production capacity. As far as I know, every company who has had the pleasure of working with Jonathan on a Nat Geo film has embraced his expertise and he continues to excel in his craft. He is a unique talent who can bridge the Asian and European documentary communities given his extensive experience in the industry.

Jonathan is wonderful, versatile and creative. He’s worked with many emerging filmmakers out of Asia and is forever patient and nurturing. (I suspect he’s actually pulling his hair out!) He’s a solid series producer who can oversee challenging projects.
