Kennon Hulett was born in New Orleans and raised in southern Mississippi. She attended the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television at New York University, where she graduated with honors with a double major in Film and Dramatic Writing.
Working with Ultrastar Entertainment, she worked with such bands as The Police, Genesis, and INXS, editing fan club exclusives for both INXS's "Sophia: Round VII" DVD and The Police's 2008 Fan Club DVD.
In early 2010, she directed her first feature film, Katie55, which is currently in post-production. She also conducted interviews in cooperation with the It Gets Better Project in the New York and Philadelphia areas.
More recently, she has been working on a variety of projects - from web content to feature documentaries, and has just completed post-production on The Ribbon, a narrative short about camping and drugs that passes the Bechdel Test with flying, psychadelic colors.
In late 2011, Kennon founded Falling Whale Films, an independent film company focused on making independent, highly accessable science documentaries.
