Welcome to The Jerry Grimes Company



(Note: This memorandum is located on every page)

A relative (and wildly successful businessperson) once said to me, "It is cheaper to buy a business than start a business". Admittedly, I did not take this advice; only because there neither existed a business which owned my Intellectual Property nor utilized approaches to licensing that property consistent with my objectives. Ideas are easily the most valuable form of capital on earth with innovation-and-implementation serving as a very close second.  My transparency here is due in large part to a number of exciting opportunities on the horizon for my company.

As I said, ideas are extremely valuable, and I have been fortunate to either register or acquire the IP rights to various properties that I look forward to developing in the next two years.

These properties range from literary publishing rights, exclusive copyrights and music publishing rights. 

While Production Services will remain a viable (yet smaller) part of The Jerry Grimes Company, there are several major changes that will occur in the next two years that will reshape the company such as:

The acquisition of The Jerry Grimes Company resulting in the company shifting its focus from Production Services to creative development and IP licensing. This acquisition will see The Jerry Grimes Company exist as a subsidiary of its parent company commensurate with the terms and conditions to which the two parties have agreed.

As it stands, The Jerry Grimes Company does much of its work via deal memos; functioning as an Independent Contractor.

The acquisition of The Jerry Grimes Company will occur in one of three ways: (1) The parent company will acquire The Jerry Grimes Company outright to include the company's entire IP catalog to include unpublished and unproduced properties, equipment, merchandise and all web properties i.e. JerryGrimes.com, social media accounts, email accounts and all related online entities (2) The Jerry Grimes Company will become an incorporated entity within its parent company as the parent company serves as the majority shareholder. (3) The Jerry Grimes Company will be restructured (which could include incorporation under a new company name, relocation to a different state within the continental United States and a reassignment/removal of company officers and employees should any officers or employees remain with the company at the time of its acquisition and restructuring.

What all of this means, is that I am incredibly overextended with several commitments both within and outside of The Jerry Grimes Company. I am looking forward to lessening these demands by developing a cooperative partnership that will allow me far more time to create, produce, license and sell both Intellectual Property and merchandise.

The goal of this company will ultimately be two-fold: The creation of content and The distribution of said content toward the goal of profitability.

This means within the next two years, the look of this site (and even the location of this site) will increasingly reflect an exciting new stage in the growth of The Jerry Grimes Company! 

In the meantime, enjoy these older titles as there will be new and exciting things to come! - JG



Production and Development

As an independent filmmaker, I often collaborate with other filmmakers and artists. In addition to working with a host of artists and creators, I also work with various entrepreneurs and business operators.

While The Jerry Grimes Company is not exclusively an advertisiting company, I do produce miniature films that focus on the people behind and within a particular business. Yes, such films do promote those businesses, but my aim is to promote both the person and their business.

I am very selective about the businesses with whom I work, and that selectivity is based upon extensive criteria. Primarily, I ask myself, "Does this story need to be told?"

My aim is to create work that is simple, watchable and (on some level) important whether a film, book or illustration.
