Why Wait Productions

Why Wait for opportunities when you can create them yourself!


Why Wait Productions was created by actor/filmmaker Jahnnalee Randall and actor Gizmo the Chihuahua. For them, it was time to take action and control over their careers and stop waiting around to hopefully become discovered. Hence the name Why Wait Productions. After starting the company, all of the films produced by Why Wait Productions have been Award-Winning (28 awards & nominations) and have aired in some way. Either on Animal Planet, Comcast, local cable stations, film festivals and more!   

Why Wait Productions studio is based out of Wisconsin and Los Angeles, California. Why Wait Productions is a film company that produces their own videos. Anything from short films, web series, comedy sketches, music videos, commercials, reviews and documentaries. Most recently Why Wait Productions has been creating comedy short films on YouTube where Jahnnalee acts all the human characters (15 total) along with doing all the crew work and post-production work which makes her a one person show and crew plus Gizmo!

Jahnnalee Randall


Originally from a farm in Wisconsin, Jahnnalee Randall moved to Los Angeles to reach her dreams of working in the entertainment industry as an actor. While going to audition after audition and being stuck in LA traffic, Jahnnalee said F this and created her own film company 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 which many of them have become award winners! 

As an actor Jahnnalee's resume boasts numerous pilots, independent films, award-winning shorts, features, television shows, music videos, commercials, podcasts, and radio appearances. 

Jahnnalee graduated high school at the age of sixteen and went onto five different colleges to learn communications, photography, web design, multimedia, screenwriting and filmmaking. Jahnnalee'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 Jahnnalee 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 the film industry!

Gizmo the Chihuahua

He is currently the star of his own six-time award-winning web series — 2Fur1 — and he's in every episode of Why Do Movies Use Duct Tape, Why Do Movies, Pet Peeves, Dating Disasters and plays the lead in the military short film Lost in Time, which all of these are award-winning and created by Why Wait Productions!
