No film school. In 2004, Joel discovered the media industry and never looked back. He jumped right in with a business loan & straight hard work ethic. Over the years, Joel & Jesse’s style of creative work & business approach was defined – but continues to change and “Evolve” on every project. They activity will wear many hats and work in just about every role the industry including: director, DP, editor, colorist, design, motion graphics & VFX, sound design and even occasionally scoring. This baptism of experience has only pushed them further, and fueled a love and passion for their craft & the many people they create with.
