KerryDavid.com - Film Consultant!

Hey iP'ers - happy May to you all. I can't believe it's already summer, wasn't it just Christmas? I'm very excited to be launching my new film consulting company www.KerryDavid.com. It's the perfect blend of business and mentoring that I so love to do. Which means that in between my projects I can continue to help new and emerging filmmakers with their projects. Some of my favorite collaborators were kind enough to write testimonials about what it's like…See More

Resume (Position, Network/Production Company, Year, Location, & Description) - you can cut and paste your resume here
I'm British born and moved here when I was in my early 20s. I spent the first four years in an all girl band as the lead singer (awesome) but not realistic! I joined Paramount Pictures and started working in Business Affairs. After 2 ½ years I left to spend three years working for, and traveling with, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman on such projects as Portrait of a Lady, Peacemaker, Practical Magic, The Blue Room, Without Limits, Mission Impossible: 2 and as I joyfully refer to it “film school with Stanley Kubrick” on Eyes Wide Shut for over a year. Next I started my own production company and Co-produced the award winning, special edition DVD of The Usual Suspects: Roundup: Deposing the Usual Suspects for MGM.

In 2000 I founded this site www.IndieProducer.net (iP). It was designed to be a film and TV community that would not only help educate, connect and support new and emerging filmmakers it would build an arena for them to create together regardless of location or distance. Now iP provides job opportunities, internships, film & TV resources, news, interviews and networking opportunities with an emphasis on connecting new and emerging filmmakers to established working professionals via our iP Schmoozefests. I spearheaded iP’s growth to include a worldwide screenwriting contest and short film contest (three of iP’s winning short films went on to become Oscar nominated) both now in their 9th year! Over the years iP has honored many new and emerging filmmakers for their projects along with legends in our industry; Jon Favreau, Bill Paxton, Andy Garcia and Michael Rapaport with our “Outstanding Contribution to Film” award. I spend hours on our site reading about all of you filmmakers, at every stage of your careers, see how you're interacting with each other and I love playing your videos.

My first feature producing credit was Agent Cody Banks followed by Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London which I set up at MGM. I then produced the multiple award winning and critically acclaimed feature documentary; My Date with Drew. An independent study found “Drew” to be the fourth most profitable movie of all time based on a budget to revenue comparison. Drew was made with a budget of only $1,100.00 (yep, eleven hundred dollars)... so no excuses! “Drew” won the Audience Award for Best Feature at the 2004 HBO Comedy Arts Festival, against such films as Napoleon Dynamite and Supersize Me. We won Best Feature at the New York Gen Art Film Festival, Best Documentary at the Vail Film Festival, and the Audience Award for Best Feature, Gellar/Devonport Award for Best Feature and the Grand Jury Award for Best Feature at the Sonoma Valley Film Festival. We negotiated a worldwide, theatrical release; not bad for a documentary. After "Drew" I set up and Produced the romantic comedy; Perfect Match for Lifetime which stars "Lost" star Ian Henry Cusick. After that I produced: Expert Insight: Short Game Golf with Jim Furyk and Fred Funk (two of golf's top ten players) which won the 2007 Telly Award for Outstanding Instructional Content and Cinematic Excellence.

Most recently I produced "Like Dandelion Dust", a compelling family drama starring Mira Sorvino, Cole Hauser & Barry Pepper. It was adapted for the screen by Oscar nominee, Stephen J. Rivele (“Nixon” and “Ali”), from a best selling book of the same name. Dandelion debuted at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January of 09 and has won 33 awards over 36 festivals since then, including The Deauville Film Festival.

I am currently producing Seeking Happily Ever After (SHEA) directed by journalist and best selling author, Michelle Cove. SHEA is an exploration of a recent US Census stating there are more single women in their 30's today than any other time in history. We've been amazed at what a hot button issue this is for so many people. Our trailer was accepted into Sundance, 1 of only 25 accepted and was their top rated trailer:www.seekinghappilyeverafter.com.

The second documentary is for HBO on the great jazz legend; Miles Davis. Directed by Chris Wilkinson, half of the writing team that wrote "Ali", and Oscar nominee for "Nixon". Chris is an avid jazz fan, and through him and the Grammy award winning music producer, Bob Belden, I have already met more living jazz legends than I ever could have imagined and learned that jazz is a language unto itself.

Most recently I was asked to Produce "Whiskey Bay", based on a true story set in Louisiana, which will be Cole Hauser's directorial Debut. It's a brilliant script written by Johnny Hirschbein, someone I've been wanting to work with for a long time.

Speaking Engagements and Mentorship Programs:
I've been a guest speaker, panelist, and moderator at film festivals and film summits all over the world. I've spoken at colleges, schools and writing groups to encourage and support new and emerging filmmakers. I'm a Mentor for the "Step Up" program in Los Angeles which mentors women in business and I'm a member of the PGA (Producers Guild of America) and BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television).

Funding by Philanthropy?

Hey iP'ers,



Hope this year has been treating you all well. I've been crazy busy with several projects; one of which I am extremely excited about but can't say too much about for a couple more months yet. It's a project that quite frankly I wouldn't have imagined me taking on, but one that I'm loving. I've been researching the culture and meeting an array of interesting people involved in it. More on that at the end of April hopefully!



I have also (like many of you I'm sure)… Continue

March Blog

Hi gang,



Well March is here (how did THAT happen?) and things are bubbling over for us with a few projects. Seeking Happily Ever After is ready for distribution and one of the topics my director Michelle Cove and I have been considering with a lot of weight is the new model of self distribution. We interviewed filmmaker Ester Bryn about her success with self distribution "Butteflies" on You Tube and she had some really insightful thoughts for us that we'll be posting on the IP site… Continue

Stanford Law Department & Other Exciting Tidbits!

Hey iP'ers,



Happy February - can it really be Feb already? Better dust off the bikini and juicer, summer's around the corner :-)



We've had some exciting news on Seeking Happily Ever After which is only weeks away from a locked picture. We submitted our doc along with hundreds of others we're sure, to the Stanford Law Department who choose one doc to work on for gratis and use as a teaching tool for their students. We were thrilled to be chosen and are currently going through… Continue

Hello: I am a high school student from China! I love movies. I am now writing the script and hope to get you appropriate advice!
My mailbox is lucy941@live.cn
I hope that is willing to cooperate with the filmmakers to contact me! ! ! !
The film script is nearing completion, and I am about to start writing screenplays! The film is through a real example adapted from. I think that the film no less than the movie "Titanic"! Very exciting. I also worried that if the shooting does not get an Oscar out of it!. However, the film needs adequate financial support! I am now in China, Huizhou City, Guangdong Province, experimental secondary school, I was a High School student. Even though I'm just a student but my writing skills is not bad! I hope you will cooperate with me. I think that this movie can be shot out of it must be immortal for! It is fantastic! Enough to attract fans around the world's attention.
