K.M. Jamison | Company President

K.M. Jamison is an independent script writer, producer and director originally from Dallas, Texas. Jamison began his leap towards the world of independent film in 2007 after moving to Illinois to continue an already established career with his family’s aerospace company. Jamison’s studies range from variety of areas specializing in video and television production, film interpretation, a number of scriptwriting workshops, film appreciation, conceptual storytelling and video/film theory which eventually landed him a job as a production assistant on a handful of student projects and independent productions. After taking a year and a half to write his own script intended to be produced into a full feature, Jamison met with another aspiring filmmaker, producer and practical special effects artist named Jim Bett Jr. who had interest in the idea of producing Jamison’s script. Despite lacking the budget to turn the script into a feature film, Jamison and Jim Bett Jr. began work on the project which resulted with Jamison’s 58 minute introduction film titled SERIAL: Amoral Uprising. In June of 2010, Jamison and Bett made the ultimate decision to open a production company of their own titled Black Eye Entertainment, appropriately named after their passion for DIY (do-it-yourself) independent film-making.
