About Jonny

Jonny Stearn is a Filmmaker and Special Make-Up FX artist who is currently doing his MA, specialising in Writing/Directing, at Raindance. He also trained in Prosthetics/Special Make Up FX under Dave Bonneywell at Gorton Studios in 2013.

Jonny has a BA Hons in Film Studies from LSBU where he was awarded the Course Director's prize on graduation, and went on to study DFX at the NFTS before settling for more specialised training at Gorton Studios in SFX Make-Up. Currently Jonny spends his time working towards getting his first feature film made, photography and practical Special Make-Up FX for all kinds of projects. Some big names are already attached to the feature - watch this space. Before turning his attention to film, Jonny worked as a Body Piercer which included a large number of celebrity clientele.

He has run his own piercing studio and for 10 years worked for Metalmorphosis at four studios and most of the big annual music festivals and trade shows. He has had exhibitions as an artist, been a circus performer in Ibiza, Thailand and the UK where he presented juggling and extreme fireshows, and also promoted his own clubnights. Jonny recently completed writing a dark comedy script for a feature film,'Spiked' - which he hopes to get made in the future. In 2010, his short 'The Price We Pay', was chosen to be screened at Raindance Film Festival. He has also worked as a Cinema Projectionist amongst other things.

As well as being in love with all aspects of Film, Jonny's roots are grounded in Graffiti, skateboarding, photography and underground music - he also enjoyed studying Music Technology in Leeds College of Music.

Born and raised in Germany, Jonny has a passion for travel, he has lived in different locations around the world and is currently based in Covent Garden, London. For the right opportunity Jonny will travel anywhere to work on film, although he wants to move to LA when possible!!
