ABOUT SISKEL JACOBS PRODUCTIONS
Siskel/Jacobs Productions (SJP) is a documentary production company that seeks to tell compelling stories with integrity, complexity, emotion, and humor. Co-founders Jon Siskel and Greg Jacobs produced and directed the documentary feature Louder Than a Bomb, which received a perfect 100% score from rottentomatoes.com, won the 2011 Humanitas Prize for documentaries, and aired nationally as part of the Oprah Winfrey Network’s “OWN Documentary Club.” The film has helped Young Chicago Authors, the non-profit that created and runs the Louder Than a Bomb youth poetry festival, seed “LTAB”-style events in ten cities and counting, and garner national and international attention.
In 2008, SJP produced the groundbreaking History Channel documentary 102 Minutes That Changed America, which won three Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Nonfiction Program, and has since been seen by more than thirty million viewers in over 150 countries. SJP has also produced shows for the Discovery Channel and the National Geographic Channel, including Witness: Katrina, which won the 2011 News and Documentary Emmy for Outstanding Historical Programming. In 2009, SJP was named to Realscreen Magazine’s Global 100, its annual list of the world’s most influential factual production companies. SJP has also produced videos for a number of non-profits, including The Robert R. McCormick Foundation, The Ounce of Prevention Fund, The Joyce Foundation, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
