Kent Johnson

Executive Producer

Kent Johnson

In addition to having written 3 full-length screenplays including the acclaimed “The Rebels”, Kent Johnson was the Executive Producer on the well-received short-film, H-E-N-R-Y. Working in conjunction with his production crew, Kent self-financed H-E-N-R-Y and was able to produce a visually stunning piece for a fraction of the retail cost. As a channel for other films, Kent created Rebel Filmworks in 2000 – the intent to cultivate & develop local Minnesota talent to produce the highest quality feature-length films without the typical restraints associated with studio production films.

Kent emerged on the film scene after a wildly successful career with one of the world’s preeminent executive placement firms, earning kudos on all levels for his ability to identify top flight talent. Kent has used that gift and applied it to the business of making films. Embracing his belief that Minnesota has a vast network of film-making talent, his vision is to cultivate that talent to build what he terms “Hollywood of the Midwest”.
