It’s in the soft murmur, and gentle milling of those who wait in anticipation.
It’s in the breeze that rustles the grass, and the clouds that meander silently above.
It’s in the smiles of those who stand watching, and in the hearts of those who are making this, their undying pledge.
It is your love, shared and continuous that we look to capture, preserving it in time.
Found in moments both big and small,
and ready to be experienced again and again.
Behind the scenes at Mason Jar Films, Jones is who you’ll talk to when you pick up the phone to call us. Commonly called Jones, this adventurer and entrepreneur always had a deep-rooted love for things that take his heart back home–including movies shot on 8mm and 16mm film. He developed a passion for documentary work on his first trip to Africa, and he’s been weaving together stories since then. Known for his efficiency and demure wit, you’ll want to have him around to work on your film because he also has an eye that can find the root emotion of a story in any moment. He’s also mentored other filmmakers for several years through an educational organization he co-founded called In[Focus] Video Events. His work has been industry recognized and awarded by The Knot, Style Me Pretty, and EventDV as leading one of the hottest and most influential studios in the world several times.

Jones recruited Kourtney Amelia as a cinematographer when she was a college film student, and throughout her career as a producer in Dallas, she kept working for Jones as often as she could–eventually training as an editor under his story-telling techniques, and transitioning to full time work with Mason Jar. Her previous productions have been distributed in book stores, online, and she’s worked as an Art Director for several award-winning independent films. After working on a documentary about poverty in Haiti, Kourtney was also amazed by the power of telling true life stories to inspire others to do good things for communities. Her mind is always incubating an art project, and since working for Mason Jar full time, Kourt has had to make some hefty investments in tissue boxes for her office desk from all the happy tears she cries while editing.
