Overview

Jonathan Dayton, grew up in Grass Valley, California. After graduating from Ygnacio Valley High School in Concord, California, attended the UCLA Film School, studying film and television in the late-1970s; while there, he met Valerie Faris, a dance student, who became his wife and his partner. As a pair, they have directed and produced music videos, documentaries, commercials and films. They have received international fame for their music videos for bands such as Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, and R.E.M.. They won six MTV Video Music Awards for the video "Tonight Tonight" by The Smashing Pumpkins. In 1998 they established a production company, "Bob Industries". Through this company the pair directed commercials for companies such as Volkswagen, Sony, GAP, Target, Ikea, Apple Computer, and ESPN. They have broadened their horizons through television work ("Mr. Show") and film direction ("Little Miss Sunshine"). The latter won the Audience Award at the 2006 Sydney Film festival and an ovation at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
