Kevin "Kunda" Williams
Kevin “Kunda” Williams is a writer, producer, and co-founding member of LumpyCouch Productions, an independent film production company. Based out of the Southside of Atlanta, Kunda first discovered his passion for acting when he saw himself on television, watching Kenan Thompson in Heavyweights. He went on to attend the same high school as Kenan, TriCities High School in the Visual and Performing Arts Program, and acted throughout his tenure there. Although he continued acting in college, Kunda soon discovered a new love for screenwriting. He made his first official entrance into the industry in 2012 with a web series titled “The Lumpy Couch”. Although low in budget, the web series was well received and featured rising stars Jason Louder, Jock McKissic, and Tai Anderson. Seeking to debunk the monolithic black experience, this venture also solidified Kunda’s stance in storytelling with comedy based in reality.
Seeing that the average man lacked a voice in sports commentary, Kunda went on to develop and produce a sports talk show entitled “TheJoeSchmoSportsShow”. A multipassionate creative who understands that content is king, Kunda has also written and produced two separate shorts “One Night”, which was featured in Constellation FIlm Festival and “ Catching Bae” for the 48 Hour Film Project.
As Kunda continues to forge his own path in the industry, he has begun to look for other projects to bring to life. He has partnered with up and coming writer Hiram Watkins to develop and produce a new web series “ God Gets Real”. His next web series,“Black Unicorn”, will tell the untold story of a 30- something black man with no children navigating the ins and outs of this world. Kunda finds himself drawn to telling relatable stories of the common man and films that pose questions for society to answer. He is currently polishing up his dream project, a feature film “From The Mountain Top: Pastor Reverend Conway Milian’s Testimony”, a satirical comedy that looks at megaChurches and our society. As the committed storyteller that he is, Kunda’s ultimate goal is to provide a space for other creatives to tell stories as he has been able to. Understanding that it takes ten thousand hours to master his craft, Kunda will continue telling stories, so be prepared to enjoy.
