Randy is now in post-production on CAFE IN THE VOID, a sure to be controversial television show that is the new co-directing project with filmmaking partner, John Luksetich. This "of-the-times" fantasy/comedy/drama is the biggest production they have done to date and set for a 2023 release. Currently available to stream are several other award-winning feature projects Randy has been involved with - the creepy horror/thriller, DEMONS AT DAWN, shot in the English countryside for Black Coppice Films, the action/comedy/horror film, CHINESE SPEAKING VAMPIRES, LIFE OF LEMON, SHADOW OF THE MONARCH, and Season 1 of the six episode webseries, SWEET AS PYE for BLK Prime. Look for the all four projects on multiple VOD platforms like Amazon Prime, iTunes, DirecTV Now, Roku and Comcast Now.

Throughout his 30 year career, Randy has garnered multiple awards as a producer, director and editor in the commercial and film arena. With his keen ability to make a little go a long way and look like it was made for a lot, Randy has earned a reputation for the work he has created across every genre and in many different countries - from his beginnings in the Atlanta comedy world, to directing heavy dramas in India, shooting tight thrillers in the streets of Holland, making straight-up horror in Buffalo and England, and then smaller, more experimental work he has done in his hometown of Los Angeles. Not only is post-production underway on the one-of-a-kind experiment - directing a feature film over Skype from Los Angeles that was shot on-location in Bangalore, India (ROAD KING) - he is also about to tour the festival circuit with the thriller, BLOOD TULIPS and is in pre-production on the mystery/crime-thriller, FROG. This film, a co-production between China and America, is scheduled to shoot in Beijing and Los Angeles.

Randy has made over a dozen commercials, short films and webseries episodes along with 7 feature films, from writing and producing, to directing, co-directing and/or editing, Randy has done it all.

Kent shot his first feature film in 2002 - LIFE, DEATH & MINI-GOLF . The music-based drama was entirely self-financed and filmed in only three locations over a 14-day period. The ensemble cast of friends is noted for being the first feature film starring role for comedy mega-star, Kristen Wiig. The Extended DVD is available for purchase on Amazon.

Another Kent project, TIMMY, THE BAG BOY, is a sweet little short film that played at film festivals throughout the country and won the Audience Choice Award for "Best Short Film" at the Kern County Film Festival. The short is being used as a pitch project to raise awareness (and of course, money) for the feature version. 

In the Summer of 2009, Kent produced and directed the indie film, LIFE OF LEMON in Los Angeles. The movie stars comedian Barry Kneller, Dan Lauria, Beth Grant, Willie C. Carpenter, Rachel Miner, John Farley and Mimi Kennedy. The movie recently won a Silver Ace Award at the Las Vegas International Film Festival and is now for rent/sale on VOD/DVD platforms like Amazon Prime.

THE PERFECT HOUSE, a co-production/co-directing deal with Gratwick Films, is now out on Bluray/DVD and on several VOD platforms. This extreme horror anthology in the truest sense of the word has racked up numerous statues including, Best Director, Best Picture and several Best Actor awards across the country.

Other projects Randy is attached to direct and produce include the experimental indie horror, BLIND; the character-driven urban thriller, ROAD TO ROSARITO; the mystical 1980s adventure homage, THE WIZARD PROJECT; a TV show & feature film based on the mock band, DRUNK N STUPID; The medical drama, LIFE & DEATH; the feature length version of TIMMY, THE BAG BOY; and the genre-crossing Western meets Film noir, CAPONE'S KIDD, projected to start shooting in 2022.

And to top that all off, when Randy is in between narrative projects he runs the commercial production company, ZEROPOINT30 PRODUCTIONS, where he writes, produces and directs commercials and promos for smaller and bigger businesses. Clients include DIRECTV, East West Bank, Lunex Telecom, Naturalena and Seafood City Supermarkets.
