After graduating, Jonathan produced a number of short drama films for television before establishing the production company Meltemi Entertainment. The fist film produced by Meltemi was the UK romantic comedy So this is Romance. Jonathan then began to develop a range of projects under the Meltemi label and to establish a number of important co-production relationships with other countries.
