2016 was an action-packed year for Jonathan Taylor. Before completion of the hugely successful NASCAR The Chase campaign for Ogilvy NY, he picked up the reigns as action unit director / DoP for the production of Assassin’s Creed, a film that has been received as a step in the right direction for video game movies.
The film began production in August 2015 and came to the big screen in January 2017, starring the likes of Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Brendon Gleeson, Jeremy Irons and many more familiar faces. It is set in the same universe as the game series but features a unique story that expands upon the series’ mythology and visualises the world of Assassin’s Creed in its most refined and spectacular form yet.
Empire magazine described Jonathan’s sequences as “top-notch fight work.”
