Director Biography - Shayla McCaffrey

Hi I'm Shayla McCaffrey. I am 12 years old but made this film when I was 11. When I was 8 years old, I told my parents I wanted to be on TV and had to even do a presentation to convince them I was serious about it. Acting and making films continues to be my first passion. I get so excited to learn new film programs.

I am known for being Young Jules in the Hallmark movie called Christmas Land and previously got done filming for the TV Series Extinct coming up in the fall of 2017.

I also model, do ethnic pageants, dirt bike ride with my family, play the acoustic and electric guitar, dance and love to hang out with friends.

My goal is bring sunshine to the set and be a healthy role model in the media.

Director Statement

The reason I created Phoney Friends was because I wanted to enter the Summit County Film Festival in 2016 and they were asking for submissions of inspiring short films. Phones and social media seem to be an issue my generation can relate to. I hope you like this film but keep in mind I'm just a beginning film maker.
