Jonathon Stearns is a the owner and creative director of Channel B4 Media. He was trained at the SUNY Purchase Film Department, and lived in NYC for several years where he worked as a set/lighting designer and Art Director. He relocated to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, where he art directed music videos and commercials via Propaganda/Satellite Films, DNA, HSI, and others. By the mid 90s he was directing music videos through Original Film.
In 1998 Stearns took a full-time staff position directing original content for Quickband Networks, a now defunct Hollywood-based content producer. In 2001 he formed Channel B4 Media (originally called Return to Whatever Media), seeing an opportunity for a small, lean production entity that offered an array of multimedia services without requiring an extravagant overhead.
Stearns is also a musician and composer, performing and generating music for film/video, theater, and dance projects. He has recorded and/or performed with a range of artists, including Rickie Lee Jones, Ann Magnuson, Possum Dixon, The Geraldine Fibbers and with his own projects.
Stearns also creates entertainment content, and is currently developing a web series entitled "Copper Sky."
