Jacob Markham

Filmmaker/Photographer

Creating films with friends was what first drew me to the camera. After countless experiments, adventures and comedic ventures, film opened my eyes to a whole new world of creativity where crafting the look, sound, and story became more and more exciting with everything that I learned. I loved the challenge but most of all I fell in love with getting to collaborate with people. I dove into learning the craft and never stopped producing with my friends, even earning us a place amongst national festivals. Now I'm following my dream, taking it one step at a time.

Our Story

The story of 47 Filmworks begins in the small town of Winnipeg where a couple middle school kids decided they wanted to create a film. One thing every budding filmmaker knows, is that you can't make a short film without a fake production company, and so, 47 Filmworks was born. Since then the team has grown and evolved until it finally became official in the summer of 2019, 47 Filmworks was in business! We feel so lucky to be on this journey, meeting and working with so many wonderful people. We're extremely passionate about telling stories, making people laugh, and creating a difference in this world. Everyone's life story is a endlessly different, and we'd be honoured to help tell yours.

Salutations! I've been working and helping alongside 47 Filmworks for many years now. It's been a dream come true to get to work on set, I must say. I've always been obsessed with the movie industry, and the fact that I now get to take the reins in writing and producing short films is simply stupendous. Not to mention, I get to make new noteworthy connections all the time and work with some of my greatest friends. Not too shabby.

Independent Video Editor & Game Developer

My endless curiosity and love of learning has led me to pursue artistic endeavours of many forms. From a young age I have been passionate about technology and the tools it gives us to not only make the world a better place, but to make our visions a reality. I have worked on a high-altitude balloon design team which captured footage of the Earth from thousands of feet off the ground, along with smaller projects like learning to create computer games myself or editing videos in interesting and compelling ways. From these phenomenal experiences I have been able to build a diverse set of skills which never fail to bring a multi-faceted and unique perspective to anything you seek to create.
