Pack your boots – we’re off to camp! Jeff teams up with EP Matt Andrew, EP/director/writer Jeffrey Simon, and writer Meg Grgurich in scoring the music to the coming-of-age television pilot CAMP ABERCORN. The show tackles LGBT issues within an historic American institution, the Compass Guides of America. With a strong acoustic palette, Jeff helps bring to life the spirit felt when huddled around the campfire as a id, gazing up at the stars wondering what life had in store for us.

Jeff visits the darker corners of his world of sound in his original score for the Indie Chi Productions feature film KANTEMIR, starring Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Fear Clinic, Freddy vs. Jason). A cast of actors are invited to a mansion to rehearse and play out their parts according to a centuries-old play… that’s haunted. They each taken on a new persona that is anything but safe as time runs out to stay alive.
Constant is a cerebral drama, taking advantage of real-life scientific data and vernacular, and fictionalizing it in a way similar to films like Primer, Interstellar, and Contact. The short film/proof-of-concept is currently in post-production, during which Jeff is scoring original music for it, as the feature film is being written. Jeff scored and designed the sound for the concept trailer, below.
Jeff joins forces with filmmakers Cameron Beyl and Kyle Andrews in the short comedy MATCHBREAKERS. When Nick arrives at a friend’s, expecting a poker night with the boys, he quickly learns he’s been set up… for an extremely awkward blind date and dinner party. Lies are dug up and truths are revealed as hilarious and cringe-worthy events guide the night. Click here to watch MATCHBREAKERS online, for free!
Be sure to bring plenty of water… and a gun, if you intend to survive THE HIKE. Written, produced and directed by Dave Fugett (who also stars in the film), this suspense thriller follows a couple on the verge of separation as they meet up for one final pastime. Little do they know, they’ve just entered a most dangerous game.
With a wandering acoustic guitar, drunken violin and some southern humming, Jeff teams up with actor/director Matt Godfrey to tell a short story about a young man torn between the demand of his friend and that of the family business. Drugs, guns and a dark southern forest… tread lightly.
