where are you located?

During the Spring/Summer I spend most of my time in Central North Carolina. During the Winter/Fall I travel quite constantly, so I can be harder to find then. But it’s also the best time for me to come to you to film something.

Who are you? Who makes up “shibby pictures?”

Shibby Pictures is [usually] just me, Jak. I collaborate with a lot of people for a lot of different things, but all of the managing of Shbby Pictures’ website/channels, store, and film production has always fell on my shoulders.

Can I book you to do a screening?

I’ve slowed down on the touring/film screening thing I used to do between 2013-2018, but am still happy to do screenings upon request. I have everything I need to do a screening, so let me know where to go!

Will you do a music video for me/my band?

The videos you see ("Shibby Pictures videos") are made out of a place of pure creative interest. It is how I express myself, and if I'm not constantly doing it, I feel like I have nothing to live for.

Please don't be upset or offended if I don't have time or cannot follow through on a collaboration you reach out about, I barely have time to film the people that I am close with as it is! Now, if you want to HIRE me as a person, and not as "Shibby Pictures," then you are basically hiring my body and mind for however many hours it takes to film whatever you have in mind. To be honest, I try to avoid this because I don't want the thing that makes me feel like a normal person become something close to a job. In that instance, I finish editing the movie, and send it to you to do whatever you want with it. That's not a "Shibby Pictures video" that's a video of exact quality made by a guy named Jak!

 

Who are your influences?

Richard Linklater, the Duplass Borhters, Greta Gerwig, Bo Burnham, Joe Swanberg, Augustine Fizzell, Donald Glover, Quentin Tarantino, Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, Kevin Smith, Steven Soderbergh.

I want to screen one of your videos at my screening/show/festival or have the original file for a video for a project?

Sure! Just let me know what you want to use it for. E-mail me at Jak@ShibbyPictures.com and I will get you an original, high-quality version file of whatever video you’re considering.

Can you give me advice on starting a production company?

Always happy to help! I definitely don’t consider myself an expert on that, but can offer you some insight on how I got started and improved throughout the years. If you e-mail me I can offer more specific advice, but the one thing I tell everyone is to just start making stuff.

Why is the shipping for your merch so expensive?

Keep in mind I am a filmmaker, not a t-shirt store, so I’m not great at setting up an online store. Sometimes when people order things like a bunch of stickers, it lumps all of the shipping together, not accounting for the fact that it can all be put in the same envelope. If the shipping on your merch seems expensive, just let me know directly and we can work out something else. (Especially international shipping!)
 

Can I e-mail you whatever bullshit is on my mind?

Hell yea! Jak@ShibbyPictures.com
