Happy New Year everybody! Hoping 2020 brings you a decade of success, growth, and happiness in all areas.

This year has been wild. 2019 saw our jibs travel more than 100,000 miles coast to coast, for 244 days of production. In 2019, #TheHumanJib grew as a company and as a team, in spite of the tragic loss of a great colleague. Through all the ups, downs, and runarounds, we continue to move forward and kick ass. Before we SWING into the new year, here are a few moments of 2019 we’re proud of. ... See MoreSee Less

“Expert, On Time, Creative”

“Hired The Human Jib for our broadcast of the San Antonio New Year's event. His Jib shots were always spot on and his talent with finding the perfect shot and adding movement was 100%. He anticipated what was needed by listening to what was happening with the show in the production truck through PL and being ready. If I needed a jib shot I could count on it being there at anytime during the 2 1/2 hour live broadcast. Excellent work!!

"Mike’s experience and creativity added tremendous value to our live MSNBC event in Las Vegas. Even in a tight space with little time, Mike was performing beautiful moves with precision and creativity. His flexibility, strong work ethic, and ability to anticipate the needs of the director makes him a desired member of any production team. Looking forward to more work with The Human Jib!"

Crew Member

Mike Brown is one of the best Jib Operators I have come across. Seeing his reliability and integrity in action shows that he is dedicated to being the best for his clients. Mike stands out from other Jib Operators because of his ability to provide am azing Jib shots for a variety of different productions. From his clean, aesthetic Jimmy Jib setup, to his professional customer service. This guy means business and wouldn't let anyone down.
