Why Wait Productions is not a film company that will fund your projects or option your script.
Originally from Wisconsin, Jahnna Lee Randall moved to Los Angeles to reach her dreams of working in the entertainment industry as an actress. While going to audition after audition and being stuck in LA traffic, Jahnna Lee said F this and created her own film company (Why Wait Productions) with her talented dog Gizmo the Chihuahua. Why wait for someone else to create opportunities when you can do it yourself! So she started writing and directing films that have all been award winners!
As an actress Jahnna Lee's resume boasts numerous pilots, independent films, award-winning shorts, features, television shows, music videos, commercials, and radio appearances.
Jahnna Lee graduated high school at the age of sixteen and went onto five different colleges to learn communications, photography, web design, multimedia and screenwriting. Jahnna Lee's acting training has been in Los Angeles, CA under Robert Carnegie learning the Meisner technique at PlayHouse West, improv intensive at Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), Killian's commercial workshop, comedy intensive with Lesly Kahn, Sketch Writing at UCB, and vocal dialect with Carolyn Fallin to help tone down her Midwestern accent for auditions!
Although Jahnna Lee enjoys and values what she has been taught through her extensive training, her favorite method is to learn by doing. Just going out there and creating. Even if she fails at any of her endeavors, she looks at it in a positive light. She realizes that if her projects don't work, she has narrowed down the path of finding out what will work to break into this industry!
