Director Biography - Jon Cohen

JD has been working in the film industry for over 20 years. He was a survivor of an English boarding school, which probably explains his sense of humour. With a degree in psychology, he brings that understanding to both working with people and his stories, creating strong and interesting characters.

JD often writes female leads with the strength to rescue themselves and this gives a more individual feel to his films. He has produced and directed half a dozen indie features, several TV Pilots, and a clutch of award-winning short films, as well as corporate and advert work.

Director Statement

"Into the Woods" is a riff on the traditional teenagers going where they shouldn't, harking back to the classic days of horror. By not showing exactly what fate has befallen the teens, it leaves it to the viewers imagination as to what really happened.
