Director Biography - Jonathan Elihu Klein

Based in Cleveland, director Jonathan Elihu Klein has been making videos since before he can remember. Homeschooled while growing up, he dedicated his free time to video production. As a child, he saw movies as a way of exploring the world beyond where he lived in the suburbs.

Once YouTube came along, he started his own production company, Get the Pix Productions. He made some animated films using only Paint and Windows Movie Maker. Those films generated some significant interest, and they continue to drive traffic to the channel.

Klein recently turned his attention to making feature-length films, and his third movie, Turn Out the Lights, will have its premiere on 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, at Andrews Osborne Academy in Willoughby.
