I got everything under cont...
I've learned a lot in my years of production:
Sometimes it's easier to ask forgiveness than to get permission.
Always mic, no matter if the client 'thinks' they don't need one.
Have a plan, even if you don't follow it.
To say there is one way to make a movie is like saying there is only one way to paint.
Failure is a good result.
Art is never completed; simply abandoned.
I am a story teller. I started on paper, but when I started making videos in school with borrowed cameras, it kindled something special.
I've read books recommended by my brother and others to learn as much as I could, when I could. And on my first shooting day of the Finder's Keepers short with 8 locations in as many hours, I was exhausted from the hardest and most difficult day I had ever worked- and IT WAS EXHILARATING. Though the footage turned out rough, it was a solid learning experience, and I knew I was doing what I was supposed to be doing.
In an attempt to upgrade my production name and to reboot my goals in a new direction I chose jX12. J for Jonker, 12 for 2012 and X is the X-Factor that can be just about anything. I have experienced quite a bit of challenges and growth starting back in 2012 and it is fitting to mark the new chapter of my career. To the Future!
Bald Artists are smooth-
Young & Bald was my production name up until last year. I came across the title while applying for a job years ago as the manager scribbled it on my resume to remember me when I called back. The name has served me well, though I am still Young at Heart and still bald, it was time to update and take my productions into a little more mature direction.
This is an old family gag/game- if you found the easter egg on the site in the credits- congrats!
Rules: Upon seeing another player, you mime a firearm (pistol, shotgun, bazooka, etc.) shoot the other player before they shoot you and say "Boom Torso!".
Ah, the memories. Enjoy-
In case anyone was wondering what my background looked like on these pages.
This is my first official video project when I began seriously pursuing this career. It was fun to make and laugh about. It actually aired in a theatre in Wichita KS back in 2008 prior to Darkness at the Exploration Place Theatre to a good audience response.
