Jonathan Del Gatto
director | editor

I love what I do which is telling stories through moving images. I have extensive experience working in commercials, online content, on air promos, film and television. I started my career in NY as part of the editorial team who created the first wave of TV shows for MTV (The Real World, House of Style, MTV Sports). I quickly moved into commercials and music videos editing much of the industry’s most iconic work for top companies like Fallon, Wieden Kennedy, and HBO.

Having a solid background running successful post production companies that focused on commercials, in 2010 I decided to start directing. I am a member of the DGA and produce projects through my own production company Brighter and compainion AICP production companies. This includes full-up production and post-production  services for commercial, online content, and on air promos.

My hope is to continue to build on all my experiences while challenging myself creatively to produce new and innovative works. I have recently helmed commercials for Rosetta Stone, Nintendo, The Tropicana Casino, and on air promo work for the Disney Channel. I’m currently directing my forth  seasons of the Emmy award winning Make Your Mark series for the Disney Channel.



Casting, Lifestyle, Storytelling, Special FX’s, Humor, Post Production, and always… Collaborating.
