Jon Bristol

Jon is the Founder and Creative Director at Elmwood Productions.  Jon started Elmwood to entertain himself, and he was lucky enough to not only surround himself with amazing people with the same passion but to also manage to turn Elmwood into something bigger.  On the rare chance he's not working on a project he's relaxing with his wife, Brie, and their two cats.
Since 2002 Elmwood has been a driving force in underground and independent film in New England.  As a puppet builder Jon has brought influences from past puppet masters, animation classics, and his own real life into the concepts and designs of the characters.  He has also taught workshops, and does commissions for others. 
 In 2015 Elmwood Productions released their second full length feature film, directed by Jon, entitled "HEAD" to critical acclaim, winning awards in film festival all over the globe.  
The film had it's world premiere right at Paris In Plantsville. 
Earlier in this year Elmwood Productions released their most recent film series "The Risley Brothers" featuring an all new puppet cast built by Jon.  And the show will be screening as part of "REAL. W3ird" on August 19th - all the details are HERE for the screening!
Jon also is a cartoonist, and does oddball art assemblages.  
Mainly to entertain himself.

His motto - "Pants Optional"
