Randy just wrapped production on a one-of-a-kind experiment - directing a feature film over Skype from Los Angeles that is shooting on location in Bangalore, India. The love-thriller, ROAD KING, is breaking new ground in a number of ways and an early 2017 release across Indian and US markets is planned.
An Atlanta native who, at a young age, saw the great Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live and in “48 HOURS” and realized what his goal in life was to be - watch movies and Saturday Night Live. This constant consumption of movies and television caused him to wake up one day and say “Hey, maybe I can actually do that!” And, some years later, he did just that by moving to Hollywood with a big gleam the eye and that eye trained primarily on a big acting career (while writing screenplays on the side).
He has made over a dozen short films and commercials along with 6 feature films over the years, 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 cast of friends is noted for being the first feature film role of comedy star, Kristen Wiig.
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 most VOD/DVD platforms.
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.
