Kenny Holmes is an award-winning producer, cinematographer, editor and podcaster.
Holmes produced, shot and edited Score: A Film Music Documentary, which became a breakout hit in its limited theatrical release, and become a #1 iTunes and Amazon documentary for five weeks. It also became the #1 most pirated documentary film of 2017, according to torrent downloading site ThePirateBay. Score earned Holmes honors from several film festivals, and was an official selection to the San Francisco International Film Festival, where the documentary was the first-ever film to be screened to the public at Dolby Laboratories. The film qualified for Academy Award (“Oscars”) consideration for Best Documentary Film, and Recording Academy (“Grammys”) consideration for Best Music Film.
The success of Score inspired the creation of a weekly podcast series hosted by Holmes and former President of Fox Music Robert Kraft titled Score: The Podcast (Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other platforms), which interviews leading composers and musical storytellers about their music in current films and television shows. To date, the ongoing series has broken entertainment news, and is considered one of the leading programs focused on the world of film and television music.
Holmes’ work as a news and entertainment photojournalist has earned four Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award, as well as a National Press Club Journalism Award, among other honors. He has field produced major breaking news events, including several of the largest wildfires in California history, and covered political party conventions and the 2015 visit of Pope Francis. Holmes has also covered international entertainment and sporting events, including the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, the Olympics and the Super Bowl.
