The Filmmaker

Follow Jeff

My name is Jeff Theman, and over 45 years there have been two main constants in my life – dogs and the arts. From the moment I was able to pick up a pencil and put it to paper I knew I’d spend the rest of my life being creative in some way, shape or form.

From drawing sketches to writing poetry, I have dabbled in a variety of different ways of artistic expression. It seems one always led to another, and then another…and yet another.

After spending two years writing a screenplay with the intention to turn those 110 typewritten pages into a feature film, I was unable to keep a cast and crew together long enough to begin production, so I turned my attention to documentary film for my directorial debut, and by September 2007 officially formed River Fire Films, LLC.


Let’s build something together.
