So how is it that JibJab ended up snagging legendary director John Landis?
Since he won’t admit it himself, I will: as it turns out my partner Jon Flint had a budding career before venture capital (sometime back in the paleozoic era…) in the entertainment business, and actually worked with Landis on two of Landis’s very earliest works. And, one of the things that excited Jon about JibJab was the opportunity to bring professional and semi-professional content into their programming.
So Jon connected Landis with Greg and Evan, one thing led to another and next thing you know, Landis ended up partnering with JibJab on the Great Sketch Experiment.
It’s fun stuff, go check it out!
