Old Clapperboard Productions....aka KnotHead Productions

Our Logo

Drawing on both family ties and personal experiences within the industry, KnotHead Productions dot com was started for the development of a wide variety of motion picture, media, photographic and publishing projects.


Developed by Jay Dee Witney, the son of  motion picture director William Witney, it was initially called KnotHead Productions "because my father used to call me knot head". 

As we started to produce more and more projects, with videos now posted on Face Book, You Tube, Vimeo, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites, Knothead grew up and evolved into 'Old Clapperboard Productions' in 2018.

The old clapperboard that you see in the logo is alive and well at the Lone Pine Museum of Western History. Director William Witney used this clapper on a TV series called 'Rescue 8' in the late 1950s and gave it to his son, Jay Dee, to produce home movies. Rumor has it that Quentin Tarantino used it during the filming of 'Django Unchained' while filming in Lone Pine.

Chief KnotHead


Jay Dee Witney...Chief KnotHead  of the Old Clapperboard

When I was very young, my father (William Witney) would often call me "knothead."  Well deserved, I suppose, considering some of the harebrained things I did as a kid.  As I grew up and we became pals it stuck as a nickname.  So now I've gone and done something stupid again...started my own production company - KnotHead Productions dot com.....get it?

Kay Witney


Our story, script and manuscript editor. Published author - successful business owner - professional London "Blue Badge Guide" - Certified Wedding Planner.  She is the chief KnotHead's "right hand" and better half. Also keeping the Old Clapperboard looking good.

Cami Heitz


Cami is our web and media advisor, logo creator, production assistant and a creative out of the box thinker.  She also serves as our European contact for promotions.  I think she is in Spain today or maybe Argentina...NO, wait...If it's March it may be London!....she's full of surprises.

Yep...our security, both physically and mentally.

Really, how many production companies have a dog named Panda Bear on their staff.( We had to say good by to Panda Bear on 02/06/17, our faithful buddy for over 14 years. He was 16 when he passed) RIP PB
