Actor/Writer/Producer/Director Jaime Zevallos was never content with letting opportunity to come knocking – he went out and created his own opportunities while bartending and doing roles here and there. He would get home and write page after page and has to date written at least 15 feature length screenplays. He would use the skill and craft he honed at a local community college to start shooting his own films. A personal film he wrote (Heartlines) would be the first feature he wrote to go into production in which he also starred in opposite Steven Bauer. His current film which he also wrote, directed and stars in, the fiercely independent film 'Me You and Five Bucks' is currently playing film festivals.
