They immediately began producing their first movie, Flywheel. Kendrick wrote, directed, produced, and acted in the film. The film went on to sell over a million copies. This is just the first of several movies that Kendrick has developed. Kendrick has received over 30 awards for his work. Besides writing, acting, and directing, Kendrick is also an author. Kendrick co-wrote Defined and the NY Times bestsellers The Love Dare, The Resolution for Men, and the Battle Plan for Prayer.
