Jeff Eastin (2015)

Eastin graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in journalism and landed a position as director of photography on two Roger Corman films shooting in Colorado, "Lock & Load" and "White Fury." Shortly thereafter, he loaded his belongings into a Volkswagon camper and headed for Hollywood, where he planned to pursue a career in directing. On the way to L.A., he began writing a screenplay called "Shadow Dancer," a thriller inspired by the Billy Joel song "The Stranger." By coincidence, the script landed on the desk of producer Zalman King ("Wild Orchid," "Red Shoe Diaries") who optioned it immediately. Eastin then wrote a script about a small town hostage situation, which was produced by Trimark Entertainment and released under the title "Held Up" starring Jamie Foxx. Eastin was also chosen by director James Cameron to pen the "True Lies" sequel. For television, he created and executive-produced the series "Hawaii" for NBC and "White Collar" for USA.
