Ep. 100! Jake Hamilton: The privilege and price of “having a backstage pass to life”

Today, we hit a big Unbeatable milestone! We celebrate 100 episodes of great guests and amazing stories. I invited a man whom I highly respect to help me celebrate this milestone. Jake Hamilton is Unbeatable in his personal life and a documentary maker in the entertainment industry.

Cinematographer and Director Jacob Hamilton has worked with and for some of the biggest names in television, sports, and the movies. Jake has had a “backstage pass to life” filming many seasons with Chip and Joanna Gaines, while telling the story of Basketball Legend Steph Curry or directing the cinematography for one of the biggest documentaries today. Jake also rode next to me as I re-lived one of the most powerful moments of my life when I “Returned to Mogadishu” in 2013.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • How he put his life on the line to get the shot with me in Mogadishu
  • How losing his mother to cancer as a child has affected the rest of his life
  • The price and the privileges of life in the entertainment industry
  • How he brings forgotten stories back to life
  • His role in the smash hit Facing Nolan
  • What Chip and Joanna Gaines are like off camera
  • How he juggles family and time away for work
