Interview Jared Sparkman


Share the kind of work you do.

I produce films and other projects primarily for artists in the music business. I work as the project manager for creative house Absorb. in Indianapolis.

How did you come to do this type of work?

I started at around twelve years old, making radio shows and filming backyard wrestling matches and fake interviews with friends. Whatever we were into at the time. This turned into a local access TV show in high school. It was basically a late night show made by sixteen-year-olds. It was a small town and people embraced the show and became part of it themselves. After school I still made videos, but never focused on making it a career. I’m not sure I really cared, at the time. I decided to go to film school a few years later. During school and after, I worked on hundreds of films, television pilots, music videos and documentaries…most of them bad, but I enjoyed it and learned a lot. I continued to do this over the next few years, but soon realized I wasn’t working on anything I liked. I needed money so I got a job in IT. That sucked.

A friend of mine who I had worked with in the past started a film production company in Indianapolis. I always respected the effort he put into his projects and his attention to detail. I figured now was a good time to get involved again. The idea was to build the company slowly, but only work on projects that we liked or had a creative vision that we could steward ourselves. We have shot countless videos in the past few years and have been able to work with many amazingly talented artists and companies.

Tell us a few things you have to be consistent in to do your best work.
