Filmgraphics director, Jonathan Brough, has directed episodes 4,6,7 and 8 of the new drama series, The End, currently screening on FOX Showcase. Brough is equally applauded for his work in drama and comedy. Brough and The End, a black comedy that embraces the darkest of moments and built around a difficult subject, dying with dignity, are a perfect fit.
He commented, “I think people are really going to like the show. It’s odd, it’s funny, it’s weird, it’s a bit sick. You’re not going to watch an episode and go, “Oh, I saw that coming. It’s just so full of surprises.” Creating surprise comes easily to the director with more than twenty years’ experience and an impressive haul of awards.
Brough’s work has screened at the Cannes, Edinburgh, Hof, Slamdance, Berlin (Interfilm) and Sydney Film Festivals, and screened internationally on Comedy Central, SundanceTV, BBC and Netflix.
He has also recently directed Aftertaste, a six-part series currently airing on the ABC and is currently shooting Season 5 of the ABC comedy, Rosehaven.
His work on Rosehaven (Series 1, 2 and 3) has already won him the Best Direction of a TV Comedy award at the Australian Directors’ Guild Awards in 2018.
He won the same award in 2016 for his work on Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane, and his work on sitcom, received two nominations, including Best Comedy, in the 2016 AACTA awards.
In all, he has been chosen to direct more than 50 television series, including Power Rangers for Saban Entertainment and Legend of the Seeker for ABC/Disney. He has also made several short films, including The Model (Official Selection Cannes Film Festival), Permanent Wave (London & Sydney Film Festivals), No Ordinary Sun (Best Short Film New Zealand International Film Festival 2005, Official Selection Edinburgh, Hof & Slamdance) and Snowmen (in competition at Interfilm Berlin/ Pacific Meridian Film Festival).
Brough will be available for commercial work in April.
