Our Story

Scott Jolley has been in the Kansas City production scene for over 25 years. His passion for purposeful 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 collaboration with talented partners is key. 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.

Our gear includes DJI products including the Inspire 2 Pro with Zenmuse X5S camera, Mavic Pro, Mavic 2 Pro, Jimmy Jib Triangle Jib Arms with reach up to 30 feet, Steadicam Clipper with Steadicam G-50 arm, Red Epic Dragon 6K camera package, Black Magic Ursa Mini Pro camera package, Panasonic GH5 camera package, a variety of gimbals and vehicle mounts and much more. If we don't have it, we can tell you who does.
