“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”
– Andrei Tarkovsky
Jonathan also supports Independent Film, and has lent his time and expertise to several projects over the past 10 years. Most recently he helped in developing a new media web series with a group of Film Makers in Canada, who released the Sci-Fi comedy series ‘Space Hock’ earlier this year.
At DrakonMedia.com our focus is not just to supply Special Effects services like every other company but Practical Special effects with Visual Effects in mind. Blending the two together to create spectacular action sequences within the time and budget of a modern blockbuster movie.
Jonathan is now embarking on creating his own project, a feature film that he has written and will direct. Shooting is set to begin in early 2016 and the production is now under way. More information will be posted here as the project progresses.
The founder and director of DrakonMedia.com, Jonathan Martin has worked with many filmmaking teams across the globe and with several prestigious directors and producers. He has worked as part of a wider film making team and provides quality Special Effects, Pyrotechnics and Electronic Props, the likes of which are required by major movie makers.
Recent projects include ‘The Lake’ an action film by Steven Quale and Luc Besson, which finished principle photography in Germany, Croatia and Malta at the end of September last year. 'The Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 2', released in November 2015 and the recent remake of 'Point Break', starring Luke Bracey and Ray Winstone, to be in cinemas February 2016.
Jonathan’s career has so far taken him from a little town in Northern Ireland, to Canada and Central Europe filming, creating and capturing practical Special Effects for the wider movie industry.
