About Kerry

I spent the past sixteen years working in the film industry. The first two and a half years as an assistant in Business Affairs at Paramount Pictures learning the contract side of filmmaking, and the next three were spent working for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman at Odin Productions, honing the practical side of filmmaking. I worked with Tom and Nicole on such films as Mission Impossible 2, Without Limits, Portrait of a Lady, Practical Magic and The Blue Room, culminating in an eye opening year on the set of Eyes Wide Shut with the legendary Stanley Kubrick, which I refer to as a special kind of film school!

After leaving Odin Productions, I started my own production company & produced such projects as Agent Cody Banks 1 & 2 (MGM), Perfect Match (Lifetime), My Date with Drew (Blockbuster/DEJ) which won over 20 awards, Expert Insight: Short Gam Golf with Jim Furyk & Fred Funk (which won a Telly Award for Outstanding Excellence in Educational Programming), I produced and co-directed Seeking Happily Ever (Lionsgate Films) , Deposing the Usual Suspects (MGM), and Like Dandelion Dust (Fox) which won over 60 awards around the world.

In between filming I am able to pursue my other passion; helping other filmmakers make their way in the industry. I consult with all levels of filmmakers from creating your own production entity and the business of film, to prep, production, post and structuring the marketing for the release platform and everything in-between.

In 2001, I Founded the indie filmmaker's website:indieproducer.net, which was named the #1 site for filmmakers. I sold iP to the Vail Film Festival in 2011.

From 2010 - 2013 I took time out for a project in Africa. I was asked to build a musical village for orphans in Ghana, West Africa. As CEO I oversaw the creation of the village, from procuring 5 acres of land for the build, to designing, planning and implementing the village itself with renown architects Perkins & Will, and James Ayando of Habitat For Humanity and selecting the staff. The village is now home to 30 orphans with the ability to hold up to 100. I spent two and a half wonderful years on the orphanage, which was challenging but exciting. Meeting the children and working with the kind people in Africa will remain a highlight of my life!

I am now back to producing and am working on "Three For The Road", written by Jay Black & Brian Herzlinger, which will be directed by Brian Herzlinger and stars comedy phenomenon, Russell Peters.

Unique traits: Project development, strategizing, talent relations, writing, producing and directing.
