JONAH QUICKMIRE PETTIGREW has been behind a camera since he was 11 years old. By age 14, Jonah’s early work caught the attention of The New York Times Sunday Magazine, which printed a feature story profiling the young artist.
After his freshman year at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Jonah served as the cinematographer and editor for the critically acclaimed HBO/Cinemax Reel Life documentary “Andrew Jenks Room 335”. Most recently Jonah directed, shot, and edited “The Zen of Bobby V.” “Zen” was executive produced by ESPN Films, and was an official selection at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival. When he is not working on-location, Jonah is in his hometown of New Haven, CT where he operates “Kids Making Movies,” a film camp for middle school students, which he founded in 2006.
In May 2008, Jonah received his BFA in Film and Television from New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Jonah is currently represented by Creative Artists Agency.
