Randy Wilkins is a three-time Emmy Award-winning director, cinematographer, and editor from the Bronx, NY.

Shortly after receiving his B.A. in English from Franklin and Marshall College, Randy’s lifelong dream to play professional baseball was shattered after a significant injury. Under these tragic circumstances, he discovered a new passion: filmmaking. Befriending legendary filmmaker Spike Lee and by the director’s urging, Randy enrolled in NYU’s esteemed Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Film Program where he earned a chair’s fellowship and a Masters of Fine Arts in 2009.

As a finalist in the ABFF/HBO Short Film Contest, Randy’s NYU thesis film, “Osvaldo’s,” earned an exclusive license agreement with HBO for broadcast as well as numerous awards and festival screenings. Professionally, Randy has been raised through the legendary Forty Acres and A Mule Filmworks beginning as an editorial intern on “Inside Man.” Randy has recently served as Lead Editor on Lee's joints including "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus," “Jesus Shuttlesworth” for ESPN, "The Greatest Catch" for ESPN, “Katt Williams Priceless” for HBO, "What Is The Triangle? A Spike Lee Orange and Blue Skies Joint" for the MSG Network, Andra Day’s debut music video “Forever Mine” and “2 Fists Up” for ESPN. In addition to his editing work, Randy earned two Emmys for his cinematography on the FOX 59 Promo "Indiana Made” and PIX 11 Promo “Lionel.”

As a director, Randy has enjoyed success with his award-winning digital series “Docket 32357.” Wilkins is currently in post-production for Season Two of Docket, while in development for his first feature script “Pray for A Little More Spring.” Randy’s latest directorial effort is the ESPN 30 for 30/Lil’ Spike Joint “86-32” chronicling the controversial decision between Roy Jones Jr. and Park Si-Hun in the Light Middle-Heavyweight gold medal match at the 1988 Summer Olympics.

Web Series - Docket number 32357

In an eerily quiet courtroom hallway, Lois anxiously awaits the announcement of docket number 32357. Valerie, a successful retail buyer, rushes to take a seat along the bench we find Lois sitting on. The ominous voice that bellows from the speaker inspires a conversation between Lois and Valerie.

As the two women grow more comfortable they realize their meeting is anything, but by chance. What the two women discover will change their lives moving forward.

Docket 32357 examines the need to overcome loneliness even from the most unexpected of places and how we feel once that opportunity is squandered.
