Daily Nebraskan | UNL alumni’s ‘One Way’ garners private screening at Omaha Film Festival
A UNL alum’s film gets a private screening at the Omaha Film Festival:

Jeffery and his crew of mostly University of Nebraska-Lincoln alumni and students shot the movie last summer in just 13 days. Jeffery moved to Los Angeles for the movie’s post-production, which wrapped up early this year.
Jeffery said he connects deeply with the script he wrote.
“Stephen’s arc is pretty relatable to everybody,” Jeffery said, “… feeling trapped or feeling like you could be more if you lived somewhere else. Getting out of the town you grew up in.”
