“Jon Smith is the television director with a common name, but rare and uncommon talent. I've worked with Jon since 1980 and have nothing but kudos for him. He is multi-talented and has excelled in every job and project I've seen him do.He's directed thousands of hours of live to satellite multi camera TV all with aplomb and professionalism. He's always been a delight to work with and his directing, whether live, single camera, long form, documentary, or even a radio spot, has been top notch. He's not fazed by any curve, because he's experienced them all, and can still hit the ball out of the park. His wealth of diverse experience is remarkable. He knows all angles of production backwards and forwards. From the air conditioned comfort of a TV control room to the blazing heat and humidity of the third world, Jon brings moving images to the screen and is wonderful to work with in the process. I also had the honor of being a groomsman in his wedding. And when I needed a kidney, Jon donated not one, but two to save my life. Well, not really, but he would have."
