Hankerson Henry Productions Team



Hankerson Henry Productions began in 2016 with the meeting of Derek Boyd Hankerson from Florida and Sheri Piper Henry from Wisconsin. Successful professionals independently, Derek and Sheri’s passion for filmmaking, storytelling, and most importantly, turning ideas into action, they came together to produce films and documentaries on history, culture, communities, and contemporary issues with an intentional focus of informing and inspiring clients and audiences. As HHP film founders, Hankerson and Henry believe in doing, not just talking about, what is possible. Together their collective experiences include arts, entertainment, business, politics, medical, media, and education as well as world travel, tourism, sports, outdoor adventure, culture, foodies, families, history, and current events.

Derek Boyd Hankerson is proud of his mixed ethnic heritage (including West African Gullah Geechee and British blend of English, Irish, and Scottish) and he has found his voice in telling stories though film. Currently residing along Florida’s Treasure Coast, Derek’s never-boring and ”always something” personal life experiences and professional career in the public, political, and private sectors bring energy and drive to the team. Derek is equally confident in front of or behind the camera and is versatile in print media, broadcasts, and filmmaking.

Sheri Piper Henry is equally diverse in her life experiences having worked and held her own in a mostly man’s world at a GM plant before its closing to her teaching and developing curriculum at the collegiate level in the medical field. While a Wisconsin women at heart, Sheri has traveled extensively and actively engages in organizations as a driving force. She understands the transformative ability of films to take audiences to new places and provide new perspectives.

She hosts her own podcast since 2011 across social platforms, and is a speaker, published writer and screenwriter in addition to being an enthusiast for an active lifestyle, travel, foodie culture, fashion, and family.

Messaging and visual presentation can make or break a campaign, especially in the paradigm shift of social media verses a traditional tv/radio strategy.
