Jett West grew up in the delta farmland of Arkansas before moving to Spain, then to Puerto Rico, where he honed his writing skills by reading books by S. E. Hinton, Mario Puzo, David Morrell, and Edgar Allen Poe. In the late 1980's he arrived back in the states and lived a brief period in Virginia before finding his way back home to Arkansas.
West played bass guitar and sang in the rock band Jerkwater, then returned to writing stories instead of songs after the band ended it's six year run. Up to this point he wrote short stories, novellas, and novels. Switching gears, he penned the television pilot for SoulChasers, then turned his attention to feature-length scripts, writing first the animated feature UWI, then the live-action retelling of John Reid titled Spirit and Vengeance. A collection of novellas, Quad, was set to be his first published work, but instead, West turned two of the novellas into independent films, taking on the task of directing each.
The Devil Lives in Hot Springs is a gritty, no- holds barred short feature, with three separate storylines that converge by the end of the film. Tuckerman is a paranormal drama, centering on a man who returns home to investigate his first love's suicide. As the Tuckerman/Echelon deal was closing, a new script idea appeared from Jett. The two producers went to work and a full camera ready script was created. That script became "Haddie".
Striving for better production value, the producer's of Haddie will strive to feature several known actors for market visibility and interest. They also will secure an LOI from a special effects studio with film credits, for dramatic "Creature" effects and design. The
producers know they have a hard hitting and very suspenseful story about things that haunt people's nightmares. With a strong cast and great production, this will be an exciting and possibly, quite successful film.
