Cinematographer, Director

Jimmy Matlosz

A Cinematographer who also happens to Direct, Jimmy seeks honesty, and integrity!  Jimmy came from a grass roots background, the school of hard knocks, where hard work pays off and you feel the grit of the earth between your teeth.  He is real, no BS, with depth and substance, and his cinematography reflects his need for making the outrageous, accessible.

He once had a summer job picking corn, another cutting lawns and yet another pumping gas.  He has renovated two houses and he still works on his own truck.  He likes riding and fixing his bicycle and getting his hands dirty.  He runs, he rides mountain bikes, road bikes (Fireflies West) and races against his son in cyclocross (his son usually wins), he loves snowboarding and cooking as well. He has created a few of his own recipes including gringo guacamole which is amazing, and his semi-healthy pancakes too!  If you are lucky you might get a bottle of his custom Petal Pepper.  

Jimmy has been regularly writing articles for ICG and HDvideoPro over the years, as well as being a contributor to the VES Handbook of Visual Effects (Section on High Speed Cinematography). Below are some of Jimmy's most recent writings for HDvideoPro: Maxing Out With The ALEXA Mini | "Cinema Quality Handheld Design" | At A Glance: A Real Lighting Game Changer | Leica SL | Wireless Lens Control, ARRI Style | Hawk V-Lite Vintage ’74 Anamorphics | 4K Super 35 Varicam LT | Keeping The Balance

Jimmy is a collaborator: a filmmaker, a storyteller, and a cinematographer. He loves shooting COMEDY, DRAMA and especially SPORTS spots.   He has the interesting distinction, of shooting stop motion, high speed and IMAX, but his heart is in live action.  He has a hunger to understand and grasp all aspects of film making to make the process easier so the creativity can rise to greater heights.  A rare bird indeed, with a unique classification, unparalleled perhaps, but humble to the core.

Ky Dickens

Ky Dickens

Award winning filmmaker Ky Dickens is best known for her highly acclaimed documentary work, her emotionally compelling commercial reel and her endless list of questions. Did the Archaeopteryx sound like a bird, a chicken or a crocodile?

Ky directed the highly acclaimed documentary Sole Survivor, which profiles four survivors of otherwise fatal plane crashes. Sole Survivor was acquired by CNN Films for broadcast and theatrical release. It premiered on the network in January, 2014 and was second most watched film on the CNN network, after Blackfish. Sole Survivor was named the “Best Feature Film” at the 2013 BMA Awards. Ky’s 2009 feature documentary, Fish out of Water, won four juror prizes and secured international distribution by Netflix & First Run Features. The film has been hailed as a “tool for reconciliation between the church and LGBTQ community” and was inducted into the United States Library of Congress in 2011 for its instrumental role in changing the national perspective on LGBTQ human rights. In October of 2013, Ky received the Focus Award for “Achievement in Directing” from Women in Film. Ky is currently in post-production on her much-anticipated film, Zero Weeks (2017), about America’s paid leave crisis. Ky premiered the Zero Weeks trailer at the White House Summit on the United State of Women, hosted by Oprah and Michelle Obama. Ky’s other film in post production, The city that Sold America (2107), is about Chicago’s crucial, yet often-overlooked place in American consumer culture. The film is a sequel to Emmy-award winning Art & Copy.

The Barkers

The Barkers

The Barkers are a Chicago based collaborative husband and wife directing team. For the past six years and counting they’ve been creating killer videos, awe-inspiring imagery and even some of those catchy original songs you’ve been Shazaming, for both commercial advertising and editorial projects. And they’ve been lucky enough to do so for some of the world’s biggest brands including Crate & Barrel, Microsoft, Kraft, JC Penney and Hyatt.

In this new high-tech insta-snap-face-tube digital world, amongst a sea of slogans and hashtags, it’s easy to lose sight of what makes us all human. No one thing or one person is truly ordinary. And the Barkers remind us of this throughout their work. Those real life everyday moments, and the experiences that shape our lives are what they strive to capture. The work they create is not just pictures and words; it’s living content—made of bite-sized slices-of-life telling stories. And it’s this intuitive insight to social behavior and cultural trends that allows them to create high quality content that resonates and connects with their viewers.
