WILL PAYNE | CEO

Will is one half of the brain trust that founded WaterTower Films in 2008. There’s a pretty inspirational story behind the idea that became Water Tower-but you’ll have to agree to a friendly chat and a cup of coffee to get it direct from the source. Before founding Water Tower, Will racked up nearly 20 years of experience in the film and television industry, working for major networks and corporate clients, and collected a lot of Emmy awards to prove his merit.

KARI PAYNE | CFO

What do you get when you mix a master chemist with a master’s in business administration? Our CFO, that’s what. And if you figured it out by now, she’s also the better (and better-looking) half of WaterTower Films CEO, Will. Kari is a mix of brawn and brains, and is the strategic and financial mind behind Water Tower.
