Vindicate Media all started as the brainchild of Whitey. His vision and dream was to bring the “best of the best” together under one roof to create a multimedia powerhouse that couldn’t be rivaled. In the time that has passed since its inception, his leadership, passion, and commitment has contributed to creating a company that sets a whole new bar when it comes to all things multimedia related. Whitey is in charge of all administrative tasks of the company. Outside of his leadership activities, he enjoys the duties of producing, directing, shooting, and editing projects our clients bring to the table.

Roger Jones
Co-Founder, Writer, and Consultant
Dearborn, Michigan

Roger was a colleague with Whitey in their previous venture, Stallion Studios. Due to an unfortunate circumstance, that company fell apart. However, Whitey knew that he had to bring Roger with him on the new adventure. Roger’s passion is screenwriting. He has successfully penned over 20 full-length feature and short films. Several of these films are going to be put into production in the near future. Until then, Roger is a mastermind of coming up with ideas. He frequently helps with planning the logistics behind our clients projects including locations, story lines, shooting schedules, and general brainstorming.
