OWENSBY

A new entertainment and production company is seeking to leverage talent in Kokomo to host a range of performances for the community, from plays and concerts to films and music videos.

The company, O Entertainments & Productions, is the brainchild of Earvin Owensby, who recently moved to Kokomo from Indianapolis to be closer to the family. Now he wants to help make the City of Firsts a Mecca for the arts.

“I hope it will draw attention to Kokomo, which is family-oriented fun for music and entertainment. I hope to promote Kokomo as a place to go and bring your family, such as comedy shows, and that companies here can sponsor some of those events, ”he said.

Owensby said he grew up in a large family of musicians and singers and that he always “wanted to do something to make music and filmmaking better”. He said he had always been fascinated with the production world and tried his hand at screenwriting and film projects about four years ago. Now he hopes to increase that by bringing local talent on stage and behind the camera.

Although Owensby doesn’t have a stationary location yet, he has his eye on a few spots and hopes one will soon become the home of O Entertainments & Production.

He is currently working on a biblical film project called “One Touch”, is planning a city-wide post-COVID concert in the fall and is looking for musicians of all genres. He also hopes to bring the red carpet experience to Kokomo by hosting film premieres from independent filmmakers.

“We hope to bring more events to the community, such as stage arts, plays and concerts,” he said.
