                                                        JONATHAN HILLER                                     DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY // EDITOR Jonathan has too many interests, which explains his many detours -- a researcher in a neuroscience lab, a substance abuse counselor, and an operations manager at a startup -- before stumbling into filmmaking, which he found to be the only way to fully integrate his passions for art, technology, and storytelling. A few years after directing his first local broadcast commercial, Jonathan was recruited to serve as a filmmaker for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign -- serving as the director of photography on national broadcast ads and creating digital shorts to personify policy positions. Jonathan's work has been featured in places such as The New York Times, TIME, and the Discovery Channel.  His favorite work consists of crafting cinematic and empathic stories of extraordinary (or quite ordinary) humans.   He is a director and DP in Boulder at Balcony Nine Media in Boulder, Colorado.
