    About Jake S.

    My goal is to connect people with a story and make sure it's done as powerfully as possible. I love to travel, meet people, and eat good food with good conversation. My versatile skill set allows me to take projects from start to finish or participate anywhere in between. I'm experienced with generating creative briefs and production schedules. I love developing unique looks that enhance the content of a story. In the field, I've set up lighting for interviews and operated camera for both interviews and b-roll (handheld, monopod, gimbal). As a field producer, I've directed story subjects and conducted interviews. I enjoy interviews and the opportunity to connect with people and help them open up in front of the camera. In post-production, I script-write and edit. I've edited short-form stories in both FCP X and Premiere Pro. I've helped produce Telly award-winning stories and am always striving to learn and grow. I look forward to working with you!

    About Jennifer D.

    Hi, my name is Jennifer Dzikowski and I have a passion for writing about two very different subjects; crime and herbal supplements/alternatives to traditional Western medicine. I care strongly about justice, and love to follow stories from beginning to end...delving in and making sure nothing is missed. In the past, I wrote mainly breaking news/crime for Heavy.com, and also for Nancy Grace's Crime Online. I still regularly participate on Grace's Podcast, "Crime Stories With Nancy Grace." Additonally, I have written for several herbal companies. As a journalist, I love to interview those in the stories, to give readers the best glimpse of every angle possible. I gather information that other outlets haven't yet discovered, and pride myself on not simply regurgitating what is already known.
