Shibby Pictures (US) + Whitney Flynn (US)
+ Yor Cronies, Drunken Gunship and a special screening of Bulletbelt’s Clock the Night
An evening of DIY short film and music
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.
Hidden in the relatable coming-of-age stories are messages of anti-capitalism, anti-racism, and gender equality. When it comes to filmmaking, Shibby Pictures maintins 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 two million views on all of our videos, and over 4,000 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.
To this date, Jak has hosted screenings in 30 different states and 14 different countries.
WHITNEY FLYNN is part of Houston, Texas based ‘Thrashgrass’ band, Days n Daze, and will be playing a solo acoustic set.

Cloak The Night is a short documentary that follows Wellington metal giants Bulletbelt as they track their third studio album ‘Nine Centuries’.
Bulletbelt’s new album, ‘Nine Centuries’, is about The Burning Times and witch trials during the Dark Ages up to the nineteenth century. The band relocated to Auckland for a week and worked with engineer Cam Sinclair (ex-Diocletian / Bridge Burner) at The Lab Studio to track the album. The band was followed throughout that week by video producer Amber Beaton who documented the process through one-on-one interviews and in-studio sessions.
The trailer for the documentary is available here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B82iATO1zeI
