Although Andrew, Eric, and Marcus run the show at Two Jackets, we wouldn't be anything without the wonderfully talented individuals that volunteer for us on every project. The following beautiful people are some of our regular contributors. They're all amazing artists and you should check out their websites/YouTube channels/etc.
We found Bill in 2009 as we were desperately looking for the villain of our senior capstone film, A Lutefisk Western. We met him through a mutual friend and were blown away. He's a renaissance man of the highest order and we can't get enough of him. Bill lives and works in Wahpeton, ND as the general manager and morning show host of KBMW AM1450, The Voice of the Valley!
