HELLO, THERE!
My name is Adanna Kenlow, the mad hatter behind What Mountain? Productions.

This has been a long time coming, but the time has finally come for me to take that leap and put into motion the beginning of...EVERYTHING.

THE BEGINNING OF...EVERYTHING
I've known what I've wanted to do since 2003 when some actors came to my school and performed an improv show. From that point on, I knew my future was in comedy. But what about all the ideas I had in my head? Was I just going to wait around for some stranger to create an opportunity for me to be spectacular in my own unique way? To give me permission to fulfill my own hopes and dreams? Of course not! I knew that, going into the creative sphere, I was also destined to call my own shots. Create my own work, hire my own people. Become a producer. 
And so I chased that. 
Tentatively, at first. I played "The Mom" in a high school play, studied and performed theater, improv and stand-up at a community college and surrounding theaters, and finally took the dive, going on to receive a BFA in Musical Theater from a performing arts school in Hollywood, California that also offered classes in business and production.

LIVING THE DREAM

So few people nowadays get the chance to work in the field they went to school for. For me, there was no other option. Since graduating, I've been fortunate enough to perform stand-up, improv and theater professionally, write and produce a children's play, become an improv teacher, as well as direct, produce, write, and act in my own digital projects and the projects of others; all while maintaining a day job.

A NEW CHAPTER
Now is the time for me to take the leap, QUIT MY DAY JOB, and live out the life I always knew I was fit for. Now is the time for me to become a full-time actor, producer, and content creator! Your support will help to give me more creative flexibility and access to project-building resources, as well as the freedom to dive headlong into my acting career. In the near future, as my pool of human resources expands, and as my company takes up more space in the entertainment industry, I aim to create as many above- and below-the-line opportunities for women and persons of color to thrive in this industry as possible.

IN THE WORKS
Currently, I am finalizing the scripts on four sketches, have a short film in the beginning writing stages, and a web series and two podcasts in development. Patrons get exclusive behind-the-scenes videos and updates throughout the creation process!

EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS!
Your contribution will go toward an office space where I will edit digital medial media, compose scripts, send e-mails, and otherwise conduct business in a conducive environment; improve the quality of videos I shoot by enabling me to rent and purchase the equipment necessary; the hiring of crew so I no longer have to wear EVERY hat on set; the payment of actors and other creatives involved in my projects because, let's face it: these are people with REAL CAREERS, offering REAL SERVICES, and they deserve to get paid for the REAL WORK that they do, just like everyone else.

MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE
There is nothing in the world that I've ever wanted to do more. I thank God every day that I have always known who I am, that I still know who I am, and that I am able to live out my purpose on this planet each and every day. By becoming a Patron of any tier, you are giving the priceless gift of fulfillment of purpose. And for that, I can never thank you enough.
They say faith can move mountains.
I have never been more sure of anything than I have been of my place in the Universe as a creative. And so I say, "What mountain?"
Let's go forth and conquer something together.
