We brought the first Jibs to DC in 1993. Since that time we have shot over 2500 production days, locally and across the country using everything from film cameras to DSLR’s. We have been part of Inaugurals, State of the Union Address, Live Events, Taped events, TV, Commercials, Documentaries, Movies, Parades, Corporate Events, PSA’s, Music Video, Sporting Events.
We get the shot.
BEHIND THE LENS
Most of you know me as the “Jibguy”. And for the last twenty years I have been. But before that my life revolved around lighting. I was the Production Director at a lighting rental house where I would spec the equipment, throw it in a truck, and light the job. I spent several years doing freelance lighting and working on features too.
This gave me access to exploring dollies and cranes. I was drawn to the camera in motion. I became an expert dolly grip and Tulip Crane operator.
This journey led me to bringing the first Jimmy Jib to Washington, DC. in 1993.
Operating the jib is my passion and full time job, unlike some of my competitors who operate a jib as a sideline to their business. This costs you time and money because of their inability to get the shot you want.
I have focused on being the best Jib Operator around and I continue that goal on every shoot today!
