After moving to New York, Jonas Elrod got his start at the award winning production company Rockhard Films. During his time there, Jonas worked on all aspects of production ranging from Director, Producer and Editor. Focusing primarily on music videos and commercials, he worked with top artist and clients including Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Spike Lee, Nike and ESPN.
So after eight years behind the camera he certainly didn’t expect his next project to be his own story. His second documentary, WAKE UP, follows him on a personal journey looking for truth and meaning after experiencing a very radical and surprising spiritual awakening.
