Jeremy Danial Boreing (born February 5, 1979) is an American director, screenwriter, and producer. He was a member of Coattails Entertainment, a production company, with Kurt Schemper, Joel David Moore, and Zachary Levi from 2006 to 2010. Boreing was the producer and co-writer of the 2007 horror film Spiral with Moore, as well as Jeff Mizushima's award-winning 2009 comedy film Etienne!. After the dissolution of Coattails, Boreing co-founded the independent film studio Declaration Entertainment with Bill Whittle. He is also a guest columnist for Big Hollywood and Newsbusters.org.

Early career[edit]

Born in Slaton, Texas, Boreing began his career at a local historic regional theatre, the Garza, as a writer and producer. The venue was located in the boutique community founded by breakfast cereal magnate C. W. Post. He spent a number of years there composing and staging three-act plays, musicals, and other stage performances. In 2002, Boreing met future writing partner Joel David Moore, a friend of a friend, who helped move Moore's couch with his pickup truck.[1] Boreing eventually made the move to Los Angeles in the mid-2000s to work as a film producer and screenwriter. His first job in Hollywood was with Zachary Levi, another friend from Lubbock, and Eric McCormack for a television pilot with Michael C. Forman's Big Cattle Productions.[2] Boering subsequently signed with the literary department of the William Morris Agency. He wrote his first short film, Miles from Home, in 2006. A Christian pastor, he established a home church in Los Angeles.[3]

Collaboration with Schemper, Moore, and Levi[edit]

In June 2006, Boreing joined Kurt Schemper, Joel David Moore, and Zachary Levi to form Coattails Entertainment, a film production company. He produced and co-wrote the company's first feature film, Spiral,[2] with Moore who also directed alongside Adam Green.[1][4][5][6] In addition, Boreing had an uncredited role in the film as an extra. The four men (Boreing, Green, Levi, and Moore) were all personal friends[7] and the filming process was described "a movie by committee". Christopher Stipp of Asitecalledfred.com praised the film writing that "the combination of Moore's directing/writing and of Jeremy Boreing's writing with Levi and Amber Tamblyn's performances should prove to be the reason why this movie stands above most of the other independent fare that passes as film".[8] He was later interviewed with Levi, Moore, and lead actress Tricia Helfer on Up Close with Carrie Keagan to promote the film.[9]

That same year, he produced Jeff Mizushima's comedy film Etienne!,[10] which won the Jury Awards at the CineVegas and Oxford International Film Festivals, and the western Shadowheart[1] directed by Dean Alioto. He also wrote a second short film, Byron Phillips: Found, in 2009. An outspoken critic of bias in entertainment industry, Boreing was a columnist for Big Hollywood and Newsbusters.org during this time.

Declaration Entertainment[edit]

In early-2010, Boreing formed an independent film studio, Declaration Entertainment, with television editor and screenwriter Bill Whittle. The two met at a luncheon with right-wing figure Andrew Breitbart and together produced some of Whittle's early internet videos. On March 16, 2010, Boreing and Whittle guest hosted for Larry O'Connor's BlogTalkRadio podcast The Stage Right Show.[11] The company used "citizen producers" to finance its film projects. In August 2012, the studio completed filming for its first feature film, The Arroyo, which he directed and co-wrote with John Bickley, and is currently awaiting an official release date.[3]
