Founded in 2012. It was time to stop waiting around to book gigs, Jahnna Lee Randall decided to start a boutique film company of her own. Hence the name Why Wait Productions.
Dating Disasters is a new format, comedic web series. Each episode is a complete stand-alone sketch, and all of them have a running time of 4 minutes or less. Season One totals nine episodes.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
Series Creator, Jahnna Lee, recently finished the festival circuit with her first web series, the award-winning — 2FUR1 — and wanted to create something new geared towards modern web-viewing audiences. This took into consideration, not only today's short attention-spans, but also relatability of content. She pondered this at length whilst attending YouTube and filmmaking classes, as well as film seminars.
Then one day it finally hit her: What seems to be on the mind of every single person? ... DATING!... and/or how difficult it is to find someone this day in age... ding ding ding... a light bulb went off and Jahnna Lee set out to build a female powerhouse production team — to work in front of and behind the cameras.
Season One's nine episodes were shot across 10 days, and most in a single day. We couldn't be happier with the amazing work of the entire DD team. We hope you enjoy watching our series as much as we enjoyed making it! Click for the Dating Disasters Website!
ABOUT THE SERIES:
2Fur1 is a comedy mockumentary where a film crew follows two best friends, a girl and her talking dog, to Hollywood. The star struck girl can't catch her big break while her dog seems to be making his mark. The dog lands every acting audition and pays their bills even though he wants nothing to do with the industry. Will their friendship stay strong or will the dog end up stealing the show?
Logline: Will a Midwestern gal, a talking dog, and her film crew survive Hollywood?
With ten episodes released and added on IMDb for season 1, as a reality diary style, Jahnna Lee decided to have season two with 11 episodes that are fully scripted. Written and Directed by Jahnna Lee and starring Gizmo the Chihuahua. Also season two has a full cast and crew. Click for the 2Fur1 Website!
Jahnna Lee directed her first TV pilot called "Puppies & Tiaras" which she co-wrote, edited, and acted in.

ABOUT THE SHORT:
It's a dog eat dog world out there and it's even more so in the world of the 'prestigious' Arkansas Dog Beauty Pageant where the dog owners are the real bitches. Coming from all over the country, these unique personalities will do anything to have their dog win, from pageant sabotages to having their dogs wear corsages; nothing is safe, scared, or sane in this battle for the crown. Communicating privately through their psychic doggie dialogue, two of the favorite contestants, Gizmo and Lua, the golden Chihuahuas, fall madly in love risking not only the crown, but their owners' dreams in this star-crossed romance.
Jahnna Lee wrote, directed & edited a commercial called "Pocket Dial" for the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. She came up with the idea of this commercial from adapting the premise from her short film 'Fake Pocket Dial.'
Jahnna Lee sent her film to her brother who said he thought it was really funny and it reminded him of a Super Bowl commercial. The next day Jahnna Lee saw an ad for the Doritos Super Bowl contest and figured it was a sign that she must create the Fake Pocket Dial into a commercial!
ABOUT THE COMMERCIAL:
The boys are out of Doritos and play the pocket dial game on three beautiful girls to get what they want.
ABOUT CHIHUAHUA'S CHIPS:
Just because a dog doesn't know any tricks doesn't mean you should mess with him because you never know what could happen.
