Pepper in some funk to make the day a little brighter.
Caleb Jaffe works and lives in Culver City, California. He is currently employed as a screenwriter, working from home. Caleb grew up with a passion for most forms of artistic expression, including singing, dancing, and drawing. However, he is most prolific as a filmmaker. In addition, he is a proud alum of Play Mountain Place.
“I started ‘writing’ stories (dictating to my teachers) before I knew how to write. I started making films with friends before I could read. Throughout my formative years, I had the good fortune to attend schools where I was given the space, permission and freedom to execute my creative projects with friends and adults alike. As police shootings and the 2016 primary campaigns were filling my consciousness and news feed, several racially motivated violent campus assaults left me scared and angry. Until then, the dangerous realities of being a person of color were not a part of my experience. As a result, I took the rest of my tuition savings, left school, wrote a story and made a pilot episode capturing personal themes of confusion regarding African American racial identity within the context of my mixed race family. It’s Not About Jimmy Keene is my first professional production and I look forward to developing the pilot episode of It’s Not About Jimmy Keene into a full series. I also look forward to exploring myself as a writer in greater depth as the decade progresses.”
