Our Story

Scott Jolley has been in the Kansas City production scene for over 25 years. His fascination with camera movement and its ability to add to a narrative began when he met his first jib arm in the early 1990s. This love of camera movement continued to expand in an ever larger vocabulary enhanced by jib arms, steadicams, drones/UAV's, and stabilizers. The focus is always designing a shot to tell a better story.

While Scott Jolley Production Services began with Scott Jolley as an independent contractor, he understood that he could either work with those others who loved camera movement or work against them. When we work together, we challenge and learn from each other. Training up and joining forces with others, SJPS now has a strong crew of experienced and talented videographers with a wide skill set in camera movement in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois and Nebraska. We also have a network of Directors of Photography, Camera Operators, Editors, Gaffers, etc. Our passion for film making runs deep. We don't work or consider what we do a job. We play, and we play hard.
