Fort Collins filmmaker competes for spot in Ron Howard’s film festival PDF Print E-mail
Written by Kyle Arnoldy   

Rapidly making a name for himself in the filmmaking world, Randy Perkins has been an active player in the Fort Collins art scene for years.

Whether he is creating a video to help a local theater stay afloat or introducing a budding art form to the masses, Perkins’ passion for artistic expression knows no bounds.

Growing up in Longmont, Perkins had a strong connection to the Holyoke community. As a child he used to spend summers in Holyoke with his grandparents, Vern and Peggy Meusborn. His mother, Sherry Simms, lives in town with her husband Mike, as does Randy’s aunt, Penny Dockins.

Perkins has been professionally producing films for about seven years, but he is currently waiting in limbo to receive the results from the Project Imaginat10n film contest, organized and judged by legendary film director, producer and actor Ron Howard.

The film contest challenged filmmakers to produce a short video using a set of photographs as inspiration for the setting, time, character and mood of their piece. Of hundreds of films entered, Perkins’ piece titled “The Big Wait” was honored as a top 20 entry.
