In 2005, Jeremiah formed Soldier Filmworks, Inc. as a company to create his own independent media projects. The same year, to expand his skills as a filmmaker, he began studying film production and theory as a continuing education student at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, which he would do for three years.

After taking a break to develop as a person, as an actor and writer, Jeremiah proudly released his experimental debut feature film as writer/director called, NEVER CAME BACK in the spring of 2017. The film went on to win the audience award at the Gary International Black Film Festival in 2017, in Gary, Indiana.

Jeremiah is currently building his production company under its new name Ashview Heights Entertainment, Inc. The first production under the new name is the short film CASUALTY OF TIME, which is in post production. The film was developed as a part of the Los Angeles County Museum of the Arts program for veterans called, LACMA: Veterans Make Movies. Jeremiah is in pre-production on the feature film, MY DADDY AND ME, ALSO MY BROTHER and he is in development on a documentary called, SHUT UP IN MY BONES.

Jeremiah is holding steady and true to his motto, “KEEP MOVING.”
