Shibby Pictures is the production company of filmmaker Jak Kerley. It’s the gritty, confused style of filmmaking that no film festival is interested in hosting. Shibby Pictures maintains a strong DIY ethic. Having a DIY ethic means that we are able to produce a quality production with little-to-no budget, crew, or other resources.
Shibby Pictures hand-prints our own shirts and patches, and self-distributes all videos and movies on their own terms, which has been met with great success in the past several years, resulting in over 10,000,000 views on all of our videos, and over 16,000 subscribers, with a constantly growing fanbase.
For years, Jak has immersed himself in the DIY music scene, shooting music videos for bands like Leftöver Crack, Days N Daze, and Mischief Brew, and dozens more. He is also known for his widely-viewed documentary on DIY culture, “Trying It At Home” that was released in 2014. In addition to all of this, he has shot 3 feature-length films and plenty of short films.
In 2013 he began touring all over the world, hosting screenings of his work in art spaces across the planet. These tours have seen Jak hosting screenings in places like beaches, a racquetball court, an underground cave, and batting cages. To this date, Jak has hosted screenings in 30 different states and 20 different countries.
In 2018, the short documentary “Baseball Punx” was released to heavy media attention, including a feature article on ESPN. Documenting the connection between baseball and punk rock, it features members of bands like Bomb the Music Industry!, PUP, Ramshackle Glory, and Pulley.
Never one to take time off, Jak is probably working on his next video right now.
