Jake Cleeves

Head of Production

We are thrilled to have Jake Cleeves leading our production team, in-studio and on location. It’s hard to find a more cool, calm and collected individual on set once you meet Jake.  After hailing an Audio Production & Technology degree from Middle Tennessee State University, Jake quickly worked his way up the track shooting sports car racing.  Known for his ability to capture a unique blend of high-energy details and quiet panoramic moments, Jake has become an in-demand cinematographer in the national racing circuit and has been a key player on many of Chop & Hue’s consumer branded productions.   His other work includes content for Michellin Tires, CAT Footwear, Haworth Furniture, Merrell & Hush Puppies.   When he’s not recording images Jake can be found mastering another guitar riff and has been voted most likely to be the best solo guitarist you’ve never heard.
