DIRECTOR Born in Paducah, KY in 1977 in 2011 Gentner started to explore the career transition into film making after 10 years of working as a professional freelance photographer. He's spent the past 6 years learning the craft and cultivating a crew that is an extension of his artistic vision. I feel it is the ability of the Director to lead the collaborative efforts of everyone's single passion that is most appealing.
BACKGROUND IN PHOTOGRAPHY All the years and experiences of working and traveling as a professional photographer have shaped his story telling ablilites. In that 10 year span he shot 10 Bonnaroos, 5 Lollapaloozas, 5 Kentucky Derbys, 10 years of NCAA football / basketball and 5 years at NYC Fashion Weeks. In addition to 10 years of news coverage for the AP and Getty Images based in West Virginia.
