The Jalbert Brothers (Brian and Jake) started their careers in video production 15 years ago, as kids making home movies in their backyard. Combining their knowledge of filmmaking and experience in video production, Brian and Jake took an amateur love for film and turned it into lucrative careers behind the camera with Brian’s talent for producing and Jake’s passion for cinematography and directing.

Their credits include co - producer and 1st assistant director for the feature film Apple of My Eye-- starring Burt Reynolds and Amy Smart-- distributed by Sony Pictures, they produced and directed the series pilot for 10 Seconds to Run, starring veteran actor Michael Milhoan, and the feature film House Guest starring Alex Vincent Know from Child’s Play 1&2.
