Jon was hired to play a small part in the Viking epic BEOWULF & GRENDEL – one of Beowulf’s warriors – the one who is always in the background, usually out of focus, and never says anything. That meant that he had endless days on the set, with lots of time to kill. He took along a small video camera and started capturing the story that went on behind the scenes.
