JeffreIconHere's a little about a lot that I'm doing this summer (so far):

Jeffrey recently made the news in the papers playing Chaplin's tramp character for the San Francisco Symphony's screenings of the Gold Rush, where they performed his original score to the movie:

Also in June, Jeffrey is co starring with Barry Williams (yes, Greg Brady), Brian O’Halloran and Josef Cannon in the indie feature "Flea" directed by Suza Bowser, who said Flea is based on an inspired short story she once wrote. Flea examines themes of tribalism and redemption via the journey of the title character. Found badly beaten, the mysteriously mute 12-year-old Flea runs away from his trailer park home and joins a group called the Shadow Clan.

On going this summer, Jeffrey directs and acts as a "Patent Medicine Man" in an "Old Sacramento Days" living history weekends depicting California life circa 1870's.  Every day will feature roaming entertainers, period musicians, audience participation Melodramas, Make and Take craft activities and the New Golden Melodeon Review at 1:00 in Waterfront Park, where all performers and special guests from the audience will gather to honor the city of Sacramento and the great California Gold Rush!

By working with the concepts and techniques of improvisation, action choices, beats, scene arcs and colors, all participating Actors, Directors and Writers will see their characters and stories come to life on camera.


All class-work will be videotaped and the writers & directors will retain a copy of it for their own records and further viewing.

“Corked is a hilarious tale told by documentary filmmakers of four distinctly different wineries and their distinctly different wineries and their intertwined fate in the Northern California wine country. A prestigious celebrity wine critic is coming to the area and everyone is trying to make sure the sure their wine ends up on his golden palate. A diverse group of characters inhabits this region, ranging from a fiercely independent “one man show ” to an established Italian “familyJeffrey as "Jerry" in Corked” winery attempting to clean up it’s unsavory reputation. An eccentric rich kid attempts to make his mark in his father's newly-acquired vineyard and two marketing executives are determined to tap into market demographics with an edgy new high-concept label.
