Kenrick Prince moved to the United States with perhaps the ultimate American dream: Make it in showbiz. And while the road to success is often anything but smooth, the talented director/writer is one of a new wave of creators building a following while sticking to their core principles. For Kenrick, that means telling diverse stories on screen, particularly when it comes to showcasing people of color and characters from the LGBTQ+ community.
Kenrick’s most notable project so far is Gema, a short film that retells the classic “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” trope for a modern age. It was a noteworthy launching point for actress Mj Rodriguez, currently a star in the hit TV series Pose.
Kenrick currently splits time working on projects including commercials, shorts, and independent films in both New York and Los Angeles. In this episode, find out what Kenrick thinks are the biggest hurdles for independent creators in today’s media landscape, along with advice for overcoming adversity along the way.
