About Jeffrey

Jeffrey Scott Collins is a writer/director/producer who is currently in post on his feature film debut, “Poor Greg Drowning”, a grounded comedy in the vein of “I Love You, Man”. The film has screened at many festivals around the world, won numerous awards including several Best Feature, Best Comedy, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress awards, and has received multiple distribution offers. “Poor Greg Drowning” was initially a short film turned web series called “Glimpses of Greg”. The short premiered at the Los Angeles Comedy Fest and the Sun Valley Film Festival. Then, Jeff received financing to finish the project as a full length feature film.

In addition to “Poor Greg Drowning”, Jeff has also been very busy writing, developing, and producing several other feature and TV projects. He is producing Luke Greenfield’s next feature, “The Last Bachelor”, and he is currently in pre-production on his next feature film, "Above the Line,” a dark heist comedy in the similar vein of a Tarantino and Coen Brothers film, starring Cedric the Entertainer, Thomas Middleditch, Taryn Manning, and Nicola Peltz. Jeff co-wrote the feature with Jono Matt, and will also be directing and producing the film.

Other projects include a John Whittington blacklist script that Jeff is set to direct called, “I Hope We Can Still Be Friends”, a comedy TV series, "Child Star", which stars Alyson Stoner that Jeff wrote and will direct, and is also producing with Radical Media and Scondo Productions, a feature that Jeff is developing with MarVista for Hallmark called, “Summer Love in Positano”, two horror features that Jeff wrote and will direct called, “Thesis” and “The Cage”, a female driven dramedy called “Duet”, and a father son dramedy called, “Wingmen”. Jeff is also writing and directing a series of music videos for Christina Castle’s upcoming album, “The Story of Christina Castle”.

Prior to “Poor Greg Drowning”, Jeff wrote, directed, produced, and edited two thirty minute short films called, “10 Years Later” and “Let It Bleed”. “10 Years Later”, a female driven action thriller in the vein of the Jason Bourne movies, premiered at the HBO theater in New York City and has since been developed into a TV show called, “One World.” “Let It Bleed” is a revenge horror thriller that premiered at the Hoboken International Film Festival and was named one of 2011’s “Best Internet Videos” by Internet Video Magazine.

Jeff began his film and TV career in finance and Creative Services at HBO. He then worked under the the tutelage of three writer/directors on their features as a Director’s Assistant, including John Hamburg on “Why Him?”, Luke Greenfield on “Let’s Be Cops”, and Victor Levin on “5 to 7”. Jeff ran Luke’s development company, WideAwake, and also did development for John’s Particular Pictures. Jeff then worked in Feature development at Hasbro/Allspark Studios, and now runs Film & TV for Jake Stein’s new company, Scondo Productions.

Raised in upstate New York, Jeff graduated from Boston College, and has taken film classes at NYU. He also completed the Summer Film Institute at UCLA when he made the move out to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.
