Jack Anders had worked very closely with Alan Yates for many years as a cinematographer and camera operator. Together with Mark Tomaso, the three had become very close working companions. Although Alan Yates was known for being very exacting in his quest for the right footage, and practically demanding blood from his film crew, Jack Anders followed him across the world like a happy lap dog. He would have done anything to get the shot. 

Jack Anders was born and raised in rural Tennessee in the area where they shot the film "Walking Tall." He later moved to the east coast, specifically downtown Manhattan, where he met and married a college sweetheart, Elizabeth Meyer. Together they moved across the bridge to nearby Newark, New Jersey. Married for two years, they have one son, Geoff, who is three years old.
