William Packer Biography

Will Packer is an American filmmaker and Producer & Creator of Will Packer Productions. In 1994 Packer and Hardy produced their very first movie Chocolate City. The movie did comparatively well and earned them a little distribution deal. After graduating from school Packer moved to Atlanta, Georgia, which will shortly end up being the birthplace of Rainforest Films. Packer and Hardy’s vision was to make movies that will attract black audiences who hadn’t viewed genre movies starring people like themselves. Trois, the organization ‘s first picture to be released theatrically, grossed over $1.2 million and picture became the fastest million-dollar grossing picture distributed by African Americans. Because of the success of the movie William and Rob were recorded amongst the “New Establishment” of Black Power Brokers in Hollywood. In 2001, Packer brokered an extremely lucrative deal with Sony’s Columbia Tri-Star to make and distribute urban pictures including but not restricted to, Trois’s sequel Trois: The Escort, and Objectives. The movie Lockdown, released under this particular Rainforest Columbia Tristar cooperation, was one of Columbia Tri-Star’s top selling independent releases. Currently, Packer began using the shortened moniker “Will Packer”. Rainforest movies have the ability to diversify their casts with well recognized actors and performers in addition to those that are up and coming.
