Josh Piersma - Owner - Videographer


 In 2006 I began my journey into the fields of Film and Animation. After finishing an associates degree in animation at Washtenaw community college. I began to fill my schedule up with film classes and by the end of the year my hard work had payed off and I had won "best in show" at the washtenaw community college film festival. I knew I had a knack for storytelling, but I wanted to learn from some of the best. So in may of 2008 I packed my bags for Vancouver Film School (VFS) in British Columbia. I enrolled in the in the 3d animation and visual effects program specializing in visual effects. After Graduating from VFS I began to do freelance work as a motion designer and visual effects artist for video production agencies including aperture film group, Plastic Cow Productions, and Complete Music and Video. In 2009 I created a channel called 50mm on vimeo as just a fun way to communicate with and feature upcoming filmmakers.  At this time is when I started to come back to film as a whole.

Jake Stafford - Writer - Videographer


 "Since as far back as I can remember, I have wanted to tell stories for a living. When I was a young boy I accomplished this through making crude comic books out of folded notebook paper. As an angst-ridden teen I focused on writing music and poetry. As an adult, I studied Video Production in college and learned to channel my creativity and passion for storytelling into screenwriting and filmmaking. Since 2001 I have devoted myself to mastering the art of motion pictures. I have extensive experience with every facet of filmmaking – from conception to completion. With over thirty original screenplays written and dozens of independent short films and videos produced, each project brings me closer to the fulfillment of my dream."
