Hitting some milestones here at JetPak Productions

Martini shot for 'Like Me' - Interviewing Grace Helbig in some tall building in LA

Martini shot for 'Like Me' - Interviewing Grace Helbig in some tall building in LA

Two very big milestones have happened this week here at JetPak. First, on Tuesday, we shot what is most likely our last interview for our latest feature length documentary "Like Me" in LA. The incredibly lovely and talented Grace Helbig was the last one we talked to and it was a little bittersweet. Micah and I have had an amazing time simply talking to people. Meeting face to face to discuss their art, craft, goals and fears over the last year has been an amazing adventure that has given us not only an incredible amount of source material but some solid inspiration for our personal and professional lives. Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to this project be it throwing some $ at our Kickstarter or taking the time to let us interview you. Thank you. Now, on to editing.

The second milestone is that today we are putting the final touches on our latest indie feature film "Ready Or Knot". The edit is done, and we are 'festival submission' ready. Do we need to do more sound mixing, sound design, color correct, etc? Yes. But it polished to the point that it is not super scary to start showing it to the outside world and start entering it into festivals. Like, putting it in the mail tomorrow. Anyone who has made a film knows this is HUGE and SCARY and is exactly why we do the things that we do. Wish us luck, thanks to all the cast and crew who helped make this other super fun project possible and please stay tuned for updates!
