Jonathan Barr

As co-founder of The Imagination House, Orlando’s premiere creative entertainment company, Jonathan is truly one of a kind. His talent to match client needs with creative solutions through music, branding, and show development is the hallmark of his work.

Starting his career as a consultant for Walt Disney Entertainment in 1994, Jonathan became one of the most prolific producers of music for their properties worldwide. From Tokyo to Paris to Walt Disney World in Florida, his parades and stage shows are among the most popular Disney productions ever. Jonathan’s reputation for working with high end clients has given him the ability to record with world class orchestras, like the London Symphony, to achieve the level of quality associated with his name.

As the company grew, Jonathan and Joyce have expanded their creative services to include corporate clients. From their brand management, character creation, and merchandise development for the My Gym Children’s Fitness franchise, to producing promotional videos for NASCAR, and collaborating on video games for EA Sports, The Imagination House is on the move.

Other clients include Kodak, Volkswagen, Nickelodeon, Universal, and the Oklahoma Centennial Commission.

Not just limited to terra firma Jonathan’s talents are one of the key ingredients to the success of the Disney Cruise Line. From christening ceremonies to unique on-board events, to stage shows, even collaborating with the Muppets, his creative contributions are part of DCL’s rating as #1 in Entertainment for the industry. His credits also include televised events such as ABC’s Christmas Parade Special, and the 2007 Tournament of Roses Parade. Jonathan also received a Platinum Record and Grammy Award in Japan for The Club Disney Album produced for Tokyo Disneyland.

Recently Jonathan and The Imagination House were extremely proud to represent, as personal managers, the Academy Award winning star of DREAMGIRLS Ms. Jennifer Hudson.

In response to the increasing needs of producers and directors, Jonathan has recently launched Imagine It Entertainment to develop original music for the Film and Television Industry. Imagine It Entertainment offers unique access to a wide variety of talent by allowing multiple composers to compete for the role of scoring film and tv projects. The age of reviewing endless demo reels is over, as our Clients can now listen to actual submissions created specifically for their project and choose their favorite! With this innovative new concept, Imagine It Entertainment saves time by acting as a conduit for Artists and Producers, while significantly reducing costs for the project.

For nearly 15 years Jonathan’s dedication, leadership, musical talent, and creative vision have brought him and his company to a level of esteem by his clients and admiration by his colleagues. And now, with more creative challenges ahead, the future looks very exciting.
