“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 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.

He is really a good guy and a great asset. I couldn't be happier. I found other options for almost half of the price but I'm happy I hired you guys.
