The Five Qs with Kendra

We get the dirt on Media Factory pencils, fun facts about football, and more from our Production Technician, Kendra Barber!

Kendra Barber joined us this spring for our first round of the Media Factory 360 Internship, and jumped straight into field producing, as a crew member on Vermont Youth Orchestra, Town Meeting Day, and Female Founders productions. Now Kendra is staff, working with us as a Production Technician, and shares her answers to the five Qs with us: 

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you?

James Earl Jones. There's really no need for an explanation because it's James Earl Jones. That. Voice. (I also couldn't actually confirm the name of the cat actor in Alien so...)

What is your favorite piece of Media Factory technology, and why? 

I would have to say the pencils. Yes, it's a multi media production house with all the tools you need to become the next Ida Lupino, BUT the graphite is so smooth and the unfinished wood is so comfortable and really makes the Media Factory logo pop.  Also, it was literally the only piece of equipment I knew how to use when I started my internship.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently? 

Nothing funny has happened to me lately which in and of itself is funny.

Tell us something we might not know (a fact or piece of trivia that you know for no apparent reason).

Manager Neil Warnock holds the record for promoting the most teams in English soccer. (Notts County twice!)  He also likes to ride a tractor.

If you had to put your life bio into one run-on sentence, what would you say?

The only Halfrican in a family of six Kendra has spent her life running forward blindly always looking back and then scolding herself for not keeping her eyes on the road in front of her and then being shocked when she rolls an ankle and ends up with a massive gash across her entire face sobbing "Whhhyyyyyyy???" like Nancy Kerrigan.
