Hi. I'm Jeff Galfer.
I'm an actor living in Los Angeles. I've worked on various television shows such as The River, Numbers, All My Children, and Law & Order. You may also have seen me in various commercials over the years as well as in stage productions around the country.
However, I have yet to live my dream of making a movie.
Roughly eight months ago, I decided that waiting around to get cast in a film was no longer acceptable. It has always been my dream to make a movie, it suddenly occurred to me that I was perfectly capable of making one on my own. Why wait?
Eight months later, I finished working on my script (yes, it took eight months to create 17 good pages of text) and not long after, my dreams of making a movie began immediately falling into place.
A good friend and co-worker from ABC's The River, Leslie Hope, read the script and showed her interest in directing it. For years, Leslie has been well known as an actress - you may have seen her on The River or on 24 as Kiefer Sutherland's wife - but, as of late, her interest has turned to directing. Her most recent film, GAYKEITH, has won a lot of acclaim from myriad festivals around the country. She also directed the documentary What I See When I Close My Eyes, which follows the street-living kids of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Her documentary won several awards, sold to Moviola, and continues to screen all over the world. One of the industry's sharpest professionals, she brings top-notch creativity as well as oodles of experience to this project. www.lesliehope.com
Our producer, Jesse Collver, is a writer, producer and director himself. For the last six years, he has worked on CSI: New York and most recently wrote and directed his own short film, Stained. Along with havingdirected two short films and having produced multiple others, Jesse just finished writing his first, feature length script. Most recently, he joined Generosity Water; making multiple trips to Haiti last year as a videographer to raise awareness about the ongoing water crisis.
We have teamed up to create the short film I wrote: Buried Treasure.
As with any dream, we can't accomplish it all on our own without a little help from you.
The good news is that we have an entire crew working for us for FREE. That means that roughly 30 to 40 people (from actors to producers to crew members) believe so strongly in this project that they are willing to make an incredible looking short film and donate ridiculous amounts of time and energy...for FREE.
However, there are many more expenses involved than just having a crew. For instance, to feed that crew for four to five days will roughly cost us around $500 a day. Submitting our film to festivals will cost us roughly $500 in entry fees. Permits and location rentals for four days cost us roughly $3000. Even with a free crew and lots of donated services, we still have an expensive project ahead. They don't call it "Show BUSINESS" for no reason.
I humbly ask you, on behalf of myself and the crew, to help make this dream come true. You can be assured that your money is being donated to extremely competent industry professionals who want to make a movie that is truly special and memorable.
Thank you so much!
