Jon Goldberg grew up in Miami, Florida. At the age of 18, he decided he had had enough with the mosquitoes, thunderstorms, oppressive heat, & humidity of South Florida. He ventured to California with a dream to delve into the world of Film & Television Production. Jon graduated Magna Cum Laude from U.C. Berkeley where he majored in Mass Communications and directed & produced his first film.
Upon graduation, Goldberg began working as a freelancer in the LA production community. A good portion of these early years were spent at production companies including Propaganda Films, MJZ, Tool of NA, U Ground and Bedford Falls. He worked on projects ranging from films to commercials to music videos; learning the ropes and seizing the opportunity to work on shoots helmed by directors including Spike Jonze, Tony Kaye, Rocky Morton, Antoine Fuqua, Peter Care, Dominic Sena, and Markus Nispel.
Jon briskly escalated up the ranks of his department and began to work steadily as a Production Supervisor for companies including RSA, Partizan, Villains, Backyard and Original Film. Highlights of this period included a choreography-intensive Michel Gondry GAP campaign, a Coors spot starring Hall of Fame Legend Willie Mays, a parade-scene music video for Green Day, and reshoots for Tony Kaye's American HIstory X.
As a Producer, Goldberg has collaborated with agencies including BBDO, Leo Burnett USA, Y&R, Chiat Day, Crispin Porter, O&M, Mekanism, ATTIK, FKM, The Richards Group, and AFG. His list of prominent clients includes Apple, Google, Coca-Cola, Anheuser Busch, AT&T, Kraft, Toyota, Frito-Lay, NBC, Fox, E!, and TNT. His commercial and viral work has earned several Addy, Promax, & Telly Awards. Moving beyond shortform projects, Jon has produced Cine Award winning new media & up front pieces, broadcast content for NBC & TNT, and a 30 minute TV pilot.
