Show Biz Spotlight: Jeffrey Marshall - Self-Taught IT Expert by Day, Rising Star and Indestructible Stuntman by Night

“Like all good actor origin stories, this one started in the 4th grade”. Jeffrey Marshall laughed about tackling his debut acting performance of a flower-loving bull in “Ferdinand the Bull.”. He never imagined that four decades later, his love of acting would take him to significantly more frightening pursuits than smelling flowers.

Today, Jeffrey can be found spending time with his family, working as a computer engineer, or on-screen, imitating secret agents and jumping off buildings. Let’s say he’s not often bored.

Through his fascinating life and triumphant return to acting in his forties, Jeffrey has learned a few pieces of invaluable advice. It’s never too late to chase your dreams. “You should always be ticking items off your bucket list. Your mind wants to quit far before your body needs to”, Jeff states before sipping his coffee.

Here’s the (hugely simplified) journey of how he came to those realizations.

Growing up in Upstate New York, Jeffrey loved acting in school theater and musicals. After high school, Jeffrey went on to study Criminal Justice for a year. Still, Jeffrey soon discovered he didn’t learn well in a classroom environment. Jeffrey dropped out of college, and in 1993 he joined the US Army, where he enjoyed the thrill of adrenaline and became a paratrooper.

Jeffrey served in South Korea for a challenging but rewarding year in which he made lifelong friends and widened his perspective on life.

Before leaving South Korea, Jeffrey picked up a magazine that was on a table. The cover had a headline about a strange thing called “The Internet” and “Information Technology.” He was so intrigued by the article; it changed his life and gave him a new calling.

Jeffrey was struggling with money at the time, but he used the money his late grandma left him to buy a desktop computer. Not only was he broke, but the computer was constantly breaking. Being unable to afford someone to fix it, Jeffrey taught himself to do it himself. Soon, it became clear he was a natural with technology. Jeffrey started fixing his friends’ gadgets and picked up a part-time job as a telephone tech support technician for a printer company while still enlisted in the Army. He continued to read trade magazines and constantly tinkered with technology. He learned even more from volunteering for small computer companies. After receiving several awards for his service and a “Soldier of the Year” title, Jeffrey finally left the Army. He was then hired as a computer technician for a major technology company.

On reflecting how he managed to break into an industry with only self-taught skills, he said, “Others constantly challenged my credentials. But I was able to prove my abilities. It was a struggle, but it pushed me to work harder and keep learning the newest technology.”

“Now, I’m a Senior VP at an IT company and work on everything from handheld devices to artificial intelligence.”

Despite being incredibly proud of the IT career he had carved for himself, Jeffrey still had unfinished business with acting. After he put his acting passion aside to pursue his Army career, he focused on earning a reliable living and raising a family. He knew Hollywood would have to wait. It wasn’t until his mid-forties that Jeffrey seriously considered giving his dream a second shot.

He joked that he lovingly refers to stunts, car racing, and acting as his midlife crisis. Some people settle down and try to live relaxing lives in comfort. Jeffrey opted for falling from high heights, action-packed training sessions, and facing harsh critics and the brutal world of acting auditions.


In his typical style of bucking trends, Jeff Marshall managed to thrive in the entertainment industry when it was facing the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. He took advantage of the fact that he now had access to the world’s most sought-after acting schools. Each was now accessible to anyone with Zoom and started studying online with various coaches. Though 2020 was a horrifically devastating year in so many ways, Jeffrey managed to join the SAG-AFTRA actors union and got both a manager and an agent. His determination and hard work paid off.

Remarking on his time in the Army, Jeffrey said it paved the way for his later work as a stuntman.

“The Army gave me a lot of confidence,” he said. “You start seeing what you are capable of, both physically and mentally.”

One of the most challenging yet therapeutic aspects of starting acting was learning to show real and raw emotions to imaginary events. Jeffrey’s son had sadly died while he was serving in the Army. The trauma of that loss, some painful, botched military medical procedures, combined with his challenging experiences of serving in the military, forced him to suppress emotions.

“I learned to shut down emotionally at that point to some degree. It was how my mind dealt with the trauma and was my coping mechanism,” Jeffrey said.

“You hear people say that if you hold emotions in, they build up and eventually come out in one form or another. I think all my experiences, Army and non-Army, have helped me not only become a better actor but have been a therapeutic emotional release for me.”

Through studying the wide-ranging emotional spectrum of humans, he learned to face his own buried emotions. He said he was glad to “let some of that go.”

One powerful emotion he seemed to have control over was fear. While only just starting in stunts, Jeffrey has had his fair share of adventures. His favorites include stunt driving, stunt fighting, high falls, being lit on fire, racing cars, and scuba diving. He stressed that the stunts are all designed safely, well-rehearsed, and handled by highly-trained professionals. Some days he’s “banged up and bruised,” but that comes with the territory. Stunt work is a highly competitive and challenging field to break into. Jeff keeps working on his skills, networking with his peers and picking up stunt jobs when possible,

Despite all the training stunt work requires, Jeffrey said, “the most challenging part of starting in stunt training is to fight your basic human response to danger.”

“You have to fight your mind’s natural reaction to tell your body ‘NO,’ like jumping off a building the first few times,” he said.

“Then it gets easier over time. Same with fire; it takes a little getting used to feeling the flames wrap around you.”

Serving in the Army, self-teaching IT engineering, and acting in several Hollywood movies is a lot for anyone to achieve, even without suffering personal tragedies. When asked what helped him keep set and accomplish his goals, Jeffrey said he ensures he is always working on adding and subtracting items on his bucket list.

“It doesn’t have to have record-breaking activities on the list,” he said.

“For every item I take off the list, I add three back on. Once you have the list, prioritize; set goals and timelines.”

Jeffrey has learned “to want your goals so badly that you can taste them.” Ensure you have a mix of easy and challenging goals, and then reward yourself with an easy one when you’re struggling or need some self-appreciation. He always has a “random act of kindness” on his list to keep for a rainy day.

Balancing his many commitments has been the most challenging part of Jeffrey’s journey as a family man, a technologist, an actor, and a stunt person. But he makes it work. He always puts his family first, then takes classes and auditions on weekends and evenings. His day job has been generously supportive of his other career and has a flexible environment for a remote workforce.

Through determination and grit, Jeffrey has even managed to merge his two lines of work. He recently had the opportunity to combine his engineering and acting skills by writing, producing, and acting in a promotion for the multinational technology company NVIDIA. To this day, he is still innovating the technology world, even without a degree.

As for his future in the entertainment industry, Jeffrey holds a realistic level of optimism. That is to say, he obviously would love to act full-time but understands that it is a statistical longshot. Plus, he enjoys his computer engineering and feels he has the best of both worlds.

“Even if I don’t make it ‘big,’ I hope I can entertain someone, make someone laugh, make new friends and have fun. I like the camaraderie and support the acting and stunt community offer,” he said.

“But if acting does take off, I wouldn’t say no to Tom Cruise-Like money.”

After all, no mission is impossible.

ShowBiz spotlight: pure hip hop rap music by Fluid

Week over week, we at ShowBiz find new and upcoming artists by actively scanning new albums on  spotify and talking to our music fans alike and find out whom they are now listening and then make our own judgement and feature some of the artists here on ShowBiz blog!

So, with that introduction of ShowBiz spotlight, this week ShowBiz blog we feature an artist whose music we have deeply admired for his unique approach to hip hop and rap. Before we go into his current style, let's go back in time and look at his early life and all the admiration he has had for artists when he was young, who has inspired and influenced him and pulling him into the world of hip hop rap. 

As a young man group up, Fluid was heavily influenced by charttoppers Run DMC, E-40, Tech N9ne, Metallica and Linkin Park. He was inspired by all sorts of music – from hymns to nursery rhymes and jazz, and Fluid began rapping while at middle school! He subsequently took music lessons in high school and went on to perform at several talents shows, launching his career as a spectacular rapper with style, both on and off the stage. 

Ever since these took off, Fluid has since created his own musical path, and is involved in a number of projects – from a virtual reality series, to collaborative projects with other Bay Area rappers such as Cleetus Kasiody, and an artist from Brooklyn named Rawmel. He is a two time My Music Block TV Award Winner!


Right now, he is focused on finishing his solo EP project “Fluitopia”. Talking about his recent hits - his two singles he released earlier this year – “Land Of The Free” and “Major Leaguez” are unique and impactful in their own way. The latter track is very engaging with confident rhymes and some amazing production work. The song has a unique, rock-influenced, rap backdrop, where Fluid continues to flex his machine-gun flow and never misses a beat. 


We at ShowBiz couldn't stop raving about Major Leaguez track - mainly due to Fluid's versatility as a singer and also bringing out an energy packed song - a unique combination that not many rappers bring to the table these days. "Major Leaguez” is also loaded with effects and goodies that maintain the soundscape dynamic.

Check out the track right here on ShowBiz blog!

Fluid as an artist is growing in a big way and his music is currently getting spun on radio stations and clubs all over US - all adding credits to his lyrical themes, the beats and Fluid's vocals - aspects that makes him unique.

ShowBiz spotlight: Weeknight by Bleary

This week at ShowBiz, we wanted to listen to someone new and someone who makes music easy on our ears, someone who's sharing his life via music. So we encountered Bleary - an Oregon-based artist who has created some interesting tracks to portray his breakup and how he dealt with it and finally how important friends are in your life in such situations.

Let's talk about the tracks. Bleary started his first breakup song "Sever" in the emo-rap genre and with that introduced his breakup song and then went on to say there will be a total of three tracks. 

He then sang "Peace" a month later to share his thoughts via music, that he made peace with himself and that he is no more immune to being lonely.


Bleary

The 3rd and final part of this series is what we wanted to spotlight today. “Weeknight” as it’s titled, is a few months following the breakup. In the track Bleary emo-raps about his struggles, his focus on existence and the importance of friendship in life, all the while trying to stay afloat to pay bills!

Amongst the three tracks, we found "Weeknight" to have a lot of emo/funk sound in it and we like to believe that he has put in his heart and soul into the track.

You can watch "Weeknight" right below and Bleary Music channel on YouTube for the other tracks.


A lot of talent in Bleary and we see that he wants to spread positivity through music and we at ShowBiz truly appreciate that!

ShowBiz spotlight: "The Terrible Adventure"

Today 22-April is Earth Day, and we at ShowBiz wanted to feature an entertainer movie with a meaning.  With so many movies that send out a message about taking care of our beloved planet, we zeroed in on the genre of kids movies because when kids get involved and the message is even stronger that our planet needs to be fresh for our next generation to thrive in. 

We did some research online and finalized to watch the new movie "The Terrible Adventure" by independent film maker Kel Thompson. So we got ready with popcorn!

A bit of background first: The movie was conceptualized by Kel's two kids during a vacation where they had an idea to create a film to save the world from pollution, disease and more so.. even billionaire's greed! So the adventure began to make this into the movie!



Here's how the movie unfolds... The stage is set for two affluent kids who are on the verge of losing all they have and there is one opportunity that they have in front them if they take it, it will give them a million dollars! They then set out on an adventure to make it happen for themselves and all the challenges they face with evil minded adults and the gadgets and gizmos that they have to use to overcome these challenges. 

It turned out to even exceed our expectations that the movie is a great entertainer first of all and it is truly a family film in all aspects. Right from having kids as lead actors, having comedians providing clean slapstick humor and of course the billionaire who sets the contest. The kids are great actors and the fantastic screenplay and direction by Kel keep us tied to our seats on the kids' creative thoughts. You'll get to see all sorts of ideas and action from the kids - from hang-gliders to biplanes to Cadillac boats to bikes and even pirate ships!


The Terrible Adventure has already gained international recognition in awards - it has got so many of them! From Miami to BCIFF to Children Cinema Awards and Kids First! film festival as well. The list of longer than that - see the picture below!

The Terrible Adventure is already on all major online platforms - on Amazon prime and YouTube to entertain you and all the kids in your family! We are ShowBiz give our thumbs up to this great family film and recommend it to get some positive energy flowing in our lives and remind ourselves of earth day today and to contribute effectively towards it.

ShowBiz Feature: Head Fake vs. Dub Fu Masters - the club experience

We at Showbiz know how the club experience feels like and more so how much missing it feels like. We have ourselves been a regular at clubs - more often only to experience the music and the vibes with the people around us with such music playing at good volume.

Now, we are not here to wonder how many months it has been since the last time we were in a club.
We, with our positive attitudes met, of course online, and put together ideas on what we can feature on this blog to give people the good vibes right at their homes.

So we set out in search of new and upcoming artists who are creating some great music at these times who we can feature here and celebrate their work.

One such amazing group whom we've greatly admired is Head Fake. They are a trio of veteran artists who are creating some great music by putting together music from the 80's. The 80's is when real transformation took place in music as new sounds with dance and techno forms came into play. Head fake's energizing music is thought to ring good in the current generation of young millennials and their parents alike who come from the older generations.   




Our most favorite album of Head Fake is their latest one - a collaboration with Dub Fu Masters aptly titled Head Fake vs. Dub Fu Masters. This perfectly tied back to our quest for good vibes for all of us at homes looking for a club experience. Their inspiration was to provide a feel-good atmosphere when you listen to these tracks by bringing back the 80’s melody of Head Fake’s previously recorded tracks such as “One Step”, “Trump Funk”, and “Overjoyed”.

This is where Dub Fu Masters ably supported them with this vision and provided the mix by bringing out the club feel into the tracks.

The album Head Fake Vs. Dub Fu Masters is on Spotify already and we at ShowBiz enjoyed all the tracks! You can also listen to them right below on ShowBiz blog. Ask our favorite one? It has to be "One Step" - it rightly resonates with our current pandemic situation where we are taking one step at a time.


Head Fake is on instagram so you can head over there and get the buzz directly from them.
