Weeks studied communications in Vermont. He later relocated to Wilmington, North Carolina. There, he tapped into the vibrant local acting community and began performing in regional theater, improv and independent films.
Weeks also wrote, directed and starred in a short film, Waiting for the Finncannons, about a struggling actor trying to get a meeting with a well-known family of casting directors based in Wilmington. It was the short that brought Weeks to the attention of the Glory Road filmmakers.
