In 2001 at age 15 , Jaron Lockridge became interested in film while attending a high school drama class in his hometown of Bolivar, Tennessee. After performing in the school's Christmas play that winter, Jaron decided to write his first stageplay which is still currently being performed at his high school by theater students. In 2009, Jaron wrote, filmed and directed his first short film titled "Hard Man County" which was approximately 40 minutes long. The cast consisted of friends with no experience and was filmed using a Canon GL-1 he purchased from a pawn shop. Jaron had to place his dreams of pursuing film temporarily on hold due to personal issues, but his obsession with movies continued. In 2015, Jaron began production on a featurette "Betray" and quickly casted the film with local talent. With a mere $1000 budget, Jaron rented camera equipment, bought props and rented a location to get his plan in motion. With only a 4 day window, Betray was completed and Jaron saw his dream of filmmaking move forward. A self proclaimed "Guerilla Filmmaker", Jaron considers making quality films with minimal resources his specialty.
