About the Actor:

Jeffrey F. Jackson is the managing partner/owner of Taos Land & Film Company. Born 16 August 1951, Battle Creek, Michigan. Jackson began making films as a student at Michigan State University. It was there he founded The Midwest Film Festival (1972) the second largest film festival in the US that year. During his college years Jackson produced and directed several short films which garnered over 30 film festival awards. In 1973 Jackson went to Hollywood where the American Film Institute (AFI) awarded him an internship to work with Stanley Kramer on his TV production of The Trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Jackson then received a grant from the AFI to write and direct Good Country People, (1975) an adaptation of Flannery O'Connor's short story. His executive producer on that project was Robert Wise (Academy Award-winning director of such films as The Sound of Music and Westside Story). His documentary, Cattlegate, in 1983, evolved from his veterinarian father's discovery of a massive farm contamination disaster which the government had covered up. After making several more highly individualistic films, Jackson began working as an investigative journalist for LFP Publications which assigned him to report on the American tax protest movement. This led to the making of his feature-length motion picture entitled, Death & Taxes. This film received Academy Award Consideration in 1993 under the feature length documentary category and was invited to film festivals around the world. It has generated over $200,000 in sales under Jackson's marketing hand.

Over the last decade, Jackson has worked extensively in real estate development. His real estate career began in 1988 when he negotiated the acquisition of three adjoining lots within a rapidly evolving commercial area in Venice, California. Towards the end of 1989, Jackson foresaw the decline of the Los Angeles real estate market and shifted his attention to Taos, New Mexico. It was there that he began developing land on the westside of the Rio Grande Gorge as a means towards funding filmmaking. Thus began Taos Land & Film Company, LLC. Jackson has developed over 3,400 acres of land, utilizing those assets to fund his previous work, Death & Taxes as well as sponsoring the Annual Taos Land Grant Award (5 acres of land) at the Taos Talking Picture Festival. Jackson brings to the Company a clear guiding vision that is based on years of diverse business experience. On several of his films he has supervised the marketing and distribution. An expert in publicity, Jackson consulted for Dr. John Gray's Heart Seminars, where he assisted in the development of Gray's record-breaking literary best-seller, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venice. His abilities to generate publicity have stirred coverage in such media as Reader's Digest, ABC Television News, Saturday Evening Review, Newsweek, Variety, and The New York Times Magazine, as well as dozens of interviews on nationally syndicated radio, TV, and newspapers. Jackson's latest film, POSTAL WORKER starring Brad Garrett (of CBS's hit series, Everybody Loves Raymond) was the winner of the Best Picture Award at the 1998 Atlantic City Film Festival and is currently airing on HBO/Cinemax-TV.

Review:

A thoroughly enjoyable film, reminiscent of Fargo in that it perfectly mixes dark humor with brutal violence...a disturbing and subtly humorous performance. -- Film Threat.com 11/22/99

Dark and visciously funny...A film that goes where Tarantino would not dream of going. -- Rod Lurie, KABC-Critic

The tone in this pressure cooker shifts between hilarious and disturbing...Jackson honors a cardinal rule of successful moviemaking--his film is never boring. -- MovieMaker Magazine, January 1998
