Each year, the most hardcore kiteboarders from around the world make their pilgrimage to Hatteras, N.C. for the Triple-S Invitational. Only a select few are invited to this private competition, with just two wild-card slots open for amateurs. There are no large cash prizes or huge crowds. The riders come for the sport and comraderie. To compete with and be judged by their peers. To push board sports to the next level.
Here, off this spit of land in the cradle of human flight, kiteboarding earns the respect it deserves. With consistent winds and surf on one side, and butter-flat water on the other, this small beach town is arguably the best in the world for surf, slicks and sliders. For the riders, it is the place to shape this young sport. To define it for future generations.
“With a Kite” will follow this core brotherhood of the world’s best riders as they land sick tricks and push the evolution of board sports toward their purest form. Skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding. It’s all about the board. For these riders, kiting is boarding in its truest expression.

We have been incredibly fortunate to collaborate with team at Kiawah Island Real Estate on numerous projects over the past few years. When they approached us about helping them to tell the story of Ocean Park however, we knew this one was different.
The passion that the homeowners had for this last track of unbelievably gorgeous Kiawah Island land was truly palpable. We jumped at the chance to bring these stories to life and to help share just what makes this place so special.

Documentary Short for Verizon Wireless
For the past few years we have produced an ongoing documentary series for Verizon Wireless that has literally taken us all over the country.
This piece was tells the story of Real Watersports in the Outer Bank of North Carolina and how they braved a massive hurricane.
As part of the FedEX printed and online magazine “Access” our friends at Unboundary asked J&G to travel to Fort Collins, CO to capture the story of technology accessory company Otterbox.
Having produced numerous business documentaries for firms across the country, we can honestly say we were blown away by Otterbox. Their ability to develop compelling projects and maintain unbelievable global growth while giving back to their community and keeping a honest and fun Otter culture was impressive to say the least.
Probably the biggest highlight for this project was the fact FedEX CEO Fred Smith loved this piece so much that he played it for global business leaders at the 2012 G20 Summit in Mexico.
This is a not your typical book trailer for an awesome couple's cookbook and their bakery in Savannah, GA.

Documentary Short for Verizon Wireless
For the past few years we have produced an ongoing documentary series that has literally taken us all over the country.

The moment I first walked into Reeves & Son Shoe Repair I was immediately transported to my childhood. The heat, the smells, the stacks of odd items, the raw light bulbs, the newspaper clippings, the numerous box fans and the seemingly hundreds of potted plants reminded me of the many summer days I spent with my grandmother Ginnie (or Nanny as we called her) in Georgia…and then I met Doris.
Doris Dixon is the quiet yet firm owner of Reeves & Son. Since her husband’s passing in 1977, she has been tending the shop and repairing shoes with her son. I was first introduced to her shop when I went in with a friend to get his shoes repaired. I had no idea what I was about to experience. Doris, with her soft yet authoritative tone, placed within a shop that looks as though it has been frozen in time, made me emotionally and creatively charged. I immediately set to work on how I could capture this sprit as a filmmaker.
Jump cut almost two years forward in time, after several visits to Doris, and you finally can view the work below. Doris sent me away many times as she said “ let me think about it ” when I asked her if I could come into the shop and shoot. Her distrust of me, balanced with what was clearly her enjoyment of making me squirm, created an awesome challenge. The visuals and sounds of her shop were constantly swirling around in my mind.
Little did Doris know that I had a secret weapon. My friend Tim Hussey had a studio space next door to Doris for a few years and had befriended her over time. With the help of Tim and a few more visits, Doris finally agreed to let me shoot… but only for a few hours.
It is meant to offer a glimpse into the life of a wonderful woman and give you an opportunity to experience what I first felt when I walked into Ms. Dixon’s shop.
I hope you enjoy
