    “Jeff Steele: Children of the Doomed”
    RT: 71 Minutes
    A Feature film by Clint Sargent & Jeff S. Dodge
    Set on the mythical planet of Kaia, Secret Agent Jeff Steele (Jeff Dodge) returns from a dangerous mission only to find a sinister force at work throughout the city of Buckbean. Under the command of Edwin Stark (Steven Cebula), the two agents begin an investigation into the youth movement of the Avedonian citizenry. A mysterious appearance by the renowned author, Dr. David Vox (John Killeen) causes the Agency to fear corruption within its’ own, young ranks. While Steele spies on Vox, he meets an estranged wife named Deliyeh (Cameron Kay) who fears her husband has been lost to this weird following. As the two team up to find her husband, Ralph (John Mason), they discover that Dr. Vox and his young followers are amassing in the Great Deserts of the Noynian Basin to meet their new-found, enigmatic, spiritual-leader, the Maker (Alistair Duff).

    Can Jeff Steele and Deliyeh prevent the Maker from enacting his deranged vision of “Revolutionary Humanicide”?!

    Starring Jeff Dodge, Cameron Kay, John Killeen and Alistair Duff, “Steele : Children” features a cadre of Darge regulars and newbies filmed between September 2009 to June 2010. It was shot on location throughout SE Oregon (Owyhee River area, Rome; we even competed for scenery with Director Kelly Reichardt as she was simultaneously shooting the stunningly beautiful “Meek‘s Cutoff”) and Portland, Oregon.

  4. Filmed in Portland, OR, Kalama, WA & throughout New York City, NY (2006 - 2009).

    The song "Minimum Payments" was the 3rd track of the Jeff Dodge Peasant Revolution Band's album, "Recession Rock" released in late 2009.

    Patrick Randolph Bell hosted our journey throughout the New York footage. He portrayed one of the many swarthy characters making minimum payments & trying to get by in this tough economy. Also on hand are our band's manager, Scott A. Peterson and a skillful roller skater we were lucky enough to watch in Central Park (October 2007). There's nothing much I was consciously trying to say other than going a little old school and mixing some stock imagery with a remix of an old song. Of course I'm also a total John Lennon fan in case you didn't realize that before.

    Over the years, I've occasionally had access to a few VIP type situations (Trojan Implosion, McCain campaign). While some of it could be viewed as political tragedy, I honestly just liked the imagery with particular lyrics. It's all without malice and the viewer is free to discern whatever they want. As far as the end, I guess I felt Lennon had it right as long as you end up loving the work that you do.
    I appreciate your time & thank you for stopping by!
