Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Will Jobe grew up glued to his television screen. Though, despite the concerns of his parents, he would put these countless hours of television watching to good use later in life.
Will made his first film in high school, a short documentary about a small community outreach program which featured a young and dedicated community organizer named Barack Obama. Soon after, he traveled to the west coast and attended UC Berkeley where he earned his BA in Rhetoric. Upon graduation, he worked for a variety of documentary productions in the Bay area.
Will relocated to Los Angeles where he worked in film, television, and comic book development at Eric Eisner's Double E Productions. He earned in MFA in Film and Television Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where he focused in cinematography. He has shot numerous short films, music videos, commericals, as well as two documentary features. He is well-versed in a variety of formats including 35mm, 16mm, RED, Sony, and DSLRs.
