Tytan Creates

Meet the team –  Was it divine destiny, fate, or maybe just chance that caused three very different people’s paths to collide 10 years ago at a small restaurant bar on Tybee Island? Who are these three?  Scott Jacobs, an energetic, fun-loving, Prada wearing, big league Hollywood TV brand strategist, designer, and Creative Director who had grown weary of the superficiality of California Dreamin’ and with pregnant wife and young daughter decided to leave all that glitters behind and start afresh on Tybee Island.  Jim Stone, some would say overly serious, driven, linebacker coach mentality serial entrepreneur and designer who had strung together successful team ventures since 1990 when he left the safety net of a six-figure corporate design job to form his own engineering and design consultancy firm. Roxy, a professional photographer, CAD draftsperson, former legal secretary, California State Gymnastics Champ, and Jim’s wife and longtime business partner.  This seemingly random meeting in 2006 and the journey since would forever change the lives of these.  The Tytan journey begins.

It didn’t take long for things to really start moving.  Stone, disillusioned by the changes in the aircraft industry fulfilled his promise to his wife and himself and sold out of his firm.  Roxy, with new added confidence from the encouragement and direction of Jacobs commits to taking her photography to the next level, the birth of fashionography and the Roxify Studio.  Jacobs, sells out of his Santa Monica based firm, Think C, and the three embark on the new journey.

    The first four years focused regional firms with branding and TV commercials on the main menu.  Powerhouse Savannah firms like Enmark, Bernard Williams, JC Lewis Ford, Live Oak, Savannah Morning News and Brad Durham were all early clients.  Roxy quickly gained regional and national acclaim, as well as being chosen to shoot two covers for South Magazine.  In 2010, Tytan Creates becomes the cinematic arm of the Tytan family with short films for Nike, Red Bull, Hubbell, Notre Dame football, Clemson football, ESPN and many others.

    Over the last three years the growth continues with the Tytan trio being joined by film industry veterans, Julio Saldariagga and James Wacker as well as SCAD Motion Graphics stand-out Jessica Weiss Thomas to stretch out and up to feature films, both narrative and non-fiction. The non-fiction film Storm Soldiers, released in 2013, gained multi film festival acclaim.  In 2014 and 2015 Tytan Pictures, produced Storm Soldiers II: No Hero Stands Alone and Love, Sweat and Tears (A film starring Savannah’s own Dr. Pamela Dee Gaudry, Joan Rivers, Jenny McCarthy, comedians Craig Shoemaker and Lynne Koplitz as well as national spiritual leaders like Michael Bernard Beckwith) both of which are nearing release.

    What’s next?  Three more movies in pre-production and production including award winning Nat Geo veteran writer/director, Kevin McCarey’s two films, The Riddle of War and Distant Fires. Storm Soldiers 3, and a suspense/horror movie project Jacobs has penned with the working title, Blood Fog.  An expanded studio presence on Tybee, and a new 50,000 square foot studio in Eatonton, Georgia in partnership with longtime friend and client Walt Rocker where the team is renovating the historic Aluminum factory that has been shuttered for nearly 20 years. 

The Tytan trio and their talented crew have had quite the journey over the last 10 years and along the way captured over 200 regional and national awards including four Emmys in the last two years, 75+ Telly Awards, and three National ADDY Awards.
