Chetley Breedlove has always pushed the limits on what is possible in film, starting with defying the odds of setting a dream at a young age to make it to Hollywood, and accomplishing it at the very onset of his career.
His journey began at Full Sail University where he wrote and directed three projects, two of which were submitted and subsequently awarded in multiple festivals. After graduation, Chetley was almost immediately offered a job working with James Franco in Los Angeles.
In pursuit of his childhood dream, Chetley and, his then fiancé, Kendra left home for Hollywood. From there he would stay busy on a number of TV shows and feature films, working on almost every production lot from 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, MGM, and Sony Pictures. Throughout his time In LA, Chetley put his education to work, and began to learn the ins and outs of true Hollywood-style production.
With steady work, it would have made sense to stay in LA and keep working, but he and Kendra saw an opportunity to change the entire game of film in their home town of Northwest Arkansas. The plan was to develop a film model to help them produce Hollywood-style projects right in their backyard, and that is how WeBreedlove Productions came to existence.
Kendra Breedlove has spent the majority of her life located in Northwest Arkansas, and is a graduate of the Arkansas Arts Academy. Kendra has always known she had a passion for all forms of art, but after trying her hand at a multitude of artistic expressions, she discovered her strong suit lies within the act of appreciation. Her attempts, although sometimes laughable, lead her to acknowledge and appreciate the depths of artists’ creations at a far greater level.
Always hungering for the next adventure, she was ready to stray away from home and push Chetley to make a name for himself in LA. After watching his career blossom far sooner than expected, she was always keeping her mind open to where this life could lead her. Having never really found her niche, Kendra’s career path was much more fluid, allowing her to set it aside, which became a true blessing. When she discovered the long hours, lack of creativity, and quite frankly, the greed that was the reality of Hollywood, she knew their family would not be able to thrive with such conditions. Unsure of what to do, she waited for God to guide her toward her calling.
It wasn’t until a loss in the family called them home that she realized this was all part of His plan. They returned to a rapidly growing industry with enough time to get in on the ground floor, and just the right opportunities in front of them. Although the plan was ultimately to return to Hollywood one day, God laid out a path all too clear for WeBreedlove. She took on the role of supporter that ultimately led Kendra to her current position. Being Producer allows her to encourage and support local artists, while also channeling her logic and organizational expertise. She is the brains behind each production, making so much of it possible.
