Giving Tyler Perry all due respect as a phenomenally successful filmmaker, king of all media and coveted employer, is it too much to ask that his films be better?

Director Rob Hardy and producer Will Packer founded Rainforest Films in 1994. It's grown beyond the early days of guerilla marketing and low-budget erotic thrillers such as Trois to produce recent success stories such as The Gospel and Stomp the Yard. less...

Georgia native Ray McKinnon made a name for himself in the late '80s as a character actor at various stages in Atlanta, including Theatre in the Square and Horizon Theatre. And although he's been in L.A. for a decade now, appearing most recently in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", McKinnon's heart still is down South. His short film "The Accountant, which he wrote, directed and stars in, was filmed entirely in Georgia and was cast with local actors Walt Grogan and Eddie King. A black comedy about how far a pair of brothers will go to save the family farm, "The Accountant screened this summer at IMAGE's Atlanta Film & Video Festival, where it won Best Short Narrative Film and the festival's most prestigious award, the Southeastern Mediamakers Award.
