JETPACKS GO! TO FRESH FILM
7 May 2021

Brooklyn-based collective Jetpacks Go! have signed with Fresh Film for global representation.

The trio - Alden Ford, Justin Tyler, and Bobby Webster - bring a unique sense of humour to their projects across commercials, short films, and online content. With backgrounds in improv comedy and film studies, they balance a sharp humour with deft cinematography to ensure their films are both technically and emotionally compelling.


The collective cite the "quirky characteristics of regular people" as their main inspiration for comedy, ensuring that even heightened or more surreal spots come from a grounded place. They also believe three is definitely not a crowd on set, and credit their triple-headed approach with allowing them to solve problems and come up with narrative enhancements on the fly - all things Fresh Film are excited to add to their offer.

They describe the following spot for dog treat brand Beneful as their "trickiest job" to date, with the amusing final product proving they can work around even the most challenging conditions. Even the old adage about never working with animals can't keep the irrepressible trio down.
