Boredom and bad decisions are a part of life in far-off places like BFE. Young and old struggle to live free or die trying. Including Grampa who has a terminal illness but won’t go down without a fight. His grandson Ian, on the other hand, tries to teach the old man how to live, while at the same time, catch the eye of the troubled and angelic Ellie, whose feelings for Ian may be more than mutual. The problem is, Ellie’s popular boyfriend Zack, who like everyone else in this isolated town on the edge of nowhere, doesn’t want to be the last virgin.

Shawn Telford is an actor and producer, known for 8 Minutes to Love (2004), I Wish I Were a Duck (2011) and B.F.E. (2014).

Hailed as both excessively ordinary and highly original, Shawn is often told he resembles various celebrities (Alec Baldwin, Jason Giambi, Zach Galifianakis) and is often mistaken for anyone but himself. This is almost nearly but not quite hardly the story of his life.

Shawn is currently from a small town in north Idaho, though his redneck roots stretch all the way back to Kentucky. This explains both everything and nothing about this young man whom many credit with being weird before being weird was cool.

Growing up, he was both blessed and cursed to live so deeply in the woods that the TV reception only got one channel. A blessing because he couldn’t watch much TV. A curse because the only TV he could watch was really bad TV. And he watched a lot of it. Afterall, it was all that was on TV. Literally. We’re talking shows like Gilligan’s Island, the Jetsons, the Flintstones, Who’s the Boss? and Home Improvement. Anything with a laugh-track, and yes, that includes World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.*

Needless to say, Shawn’s peculiar background and outright need for self-entertainment has made him one of the funniest, most outgoing, interesting and unique people he knows. Naturally, he brings this side of himself as well as everything attached to the rest of himself to every project he works on be it acting, directing, writing, casting, teaching, tutoring, heckling or creative problem-solving.

Shawn Telford. He’s like a general contractor for all things creative. He’ll make you laugh. He’ll make you cry. He’ll make you wish you wore more hats.
