Most recently Why Wait Productions has been creating comedy short films on YouTube & TikTok. With 31 awards & nominations Why Wait Productions isn't planning on slowing down anytime soon!
Why Wait Productions started when Jahnnalee Randall tried to get acting roles in television and feature films. To be able to get those roles you need an acting agent but acting agents won't interview you without an acting reel. To create an acting reel you need footage from films you've been in. So Jahnnalee felt a little stuck. Her acting teacher, at the time, informed her to create her own material to be able to put together an acting reel to send off to agents. After she wrote, directed, and starred in her own material people watched it and told her she should submit it to film festivals. She did and she started winning awards. She realized there's no point in waiting around for an agent to take notice you need to create your own opportunities. And within that moment she realized why wait for other people so Why Wait Productions was born!
It was time to take action and stop being a talker by finally being a doer and create her own projects. The internet has opened so many doors for creators that it's time for everyone to put their own career path into their own hands! Never give up and keep trying because you never know where this world can lead you!
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 short films, award-winning web series, features, television shows, music videos, commercials, talk shows, 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, Late Night TV Comedy Writing with Jerry Corley 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!
