SHIBBY PICTURES & WHITNEY FLYNN NZ TOUR

Dates: FRI 24 NOV 7PM

$10 ON THE DOOR!

Shibby Pictures is the production company of filmmaker Jak Kerley. It’s the angry, confused style of filmmaking that no film festival is interested in hosting. Tucked in the relatable coming-of-age stories are messages of anti-capitalism, anti-racism, anti-homophobia, and gender equality.

When it comes to filmmaking, Shibby Pictures maintains a strong DIY ethic. Having a DIY ethic means that we are able to produce a quality production with little-to-no budget, crew, or other resources.

Shibby Pictures hand-prints our own shirts and patches, and self-distributes all videos and movies on their own terms, which has been met with great success in the past several years, resulting in over three million views on all of our videos, and over 6,000 subscribers, with a constantly growing fanbase.

For years, Jak has immersed himself in the DIY music scene, shooting music videos for bands like Leftover Crack, Days N Daze, and Mischief Brew, and dozens more. He is also known for his widely-viewed documentary on DIY culture, “Trying It At Home” that was released in 2014. In addition to all of this, he has shot 3 feature-length films and several short films.

In 2013 he began touring all over the world, hosting screenings of his work in art spaces across the planet. These tours have seen Jak hosting screenings in places like beaches, a racquetball court, a cave, and batting cages. To this date, Jak has hosted screenings in 30 different states and 14 different countries.
