Jonathan Cavendish

Jonathan Cavendish is an independent film producer. He is notable for his work on Elizabeth: The Golden Age and the Bridget Jones films. Cavendish read history at Oxford University before launching a career in advertising. He was part of the marketing team behind Channel 4's launch in 1982. After joining Little Bird Productions in 1983, Cavendish has been responsible for acclaimed titles such as In My Father's Den, Croupier and Trauma, as well as numerous TV projects. In 2011 he founded The Imaginarium Studios with actor Andy Serkis. The Imaginarium is a creative digital studio based in Ealing, dedicated to the invention of believable, emotionally engaging digital characters using Performance Capture technology. Cavendish had his motion capture "epiphany" while watching King Kong. "To the embarrassment of my children, I cried … and it was only afterwards when I looked up the movie and found out about it that I discovered that inside all of that was little Andy." On 20 October 2012 the studio acquired rights to The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and a new motion capture adaptation of Animal Farm. Cavendish will produce both films along with Serkis.
