HUSKER JAKE PRODUCTIONS
What is a "Husker Jake" production?
These are silent "coach's film" that I have added radio audio to.
Unless it's for something extremely rare, I will not trade my radio/film projects. It seems they are ending up for sale on online auction sites. These productions are a 'labor of love' for me, but they take up to 20 hours of computer time to assemble to be. I don't sell them because I don't own the copyrights. I'm quite certain the people profiting from my work don't own the copyrights either.
