In The Making, Longlist - Personal


Jon Cheung


FIGHT IN MOTION is a short film about the ritual cycle of pain, repetition, and renewal that comes with combat sports. A visceral assault on the senses. Inspired by the hypnotic loops found in training drills for Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Capoeira, Judo, Muay Thai, Wrestling, and all Mixed Martial Arts.

Jon seeks to showcase the beauty of human movement in a fresh and compelling style. He grew up in a chip shop by the Welsh seaside, then graduated with degrees in Economics from Oxford University and Philosophy from UCL. After a short stint as a welder in Israel, he now works in London as a filmmaker. Alongside directing, he writes & designs treatments for commercials and TV. Projects and clients include Adidas, BMW, Google, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, The Olympics, Prada, Selfridges, Simply Be, and Netflix's Sex Education.
