He’s been a featured guest on the nation’s premiere overnight radio program Coast to Coast with George Noory.

Randy Rogers is also the president of TELEFILM, INC., a Bend Oregon based production company. His career spans four decades of working in the newspaper, television and motion picture industries. During that time, he covered every type of major news event from George McGovern’s 1972 election bid to the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in 1989. His company, Telefilm, has handled the promotion of some of the world’s largest motion picture productions including The Matrix, Harry Potter, Pearl Harbor, Batman, Superman, Shrek, Toy Story, Iron Man and Indiana Jones.
Growing up in the western Pennsylvania steel town of Johnstown, Randy asked for his first camera from a Green Stamps catalog on his 10th birthday. That camera started him on a life long path as a photographer. His first part time job in 1969, as an usher at the State Theatre, subtly foretold where that path would be heading. From that day forward, Randy worked in the news and motion picture business.
Starting with a newspaper internship at the Johnstown Tribune Democrat during the summer of 1970, Randy then signed on with WJAC-TV as a television news cinematographer the day after high school graduation in 1971. Two years later, he headed out West spending 13 years in Phoenix, Arizona, working first for KPHO-TV then jumping stations over to KPNX-TV, the NBC affiliate. Garnering two Emmy nominations and numerous press club awards, Randy’s career was moving along a path headed for the top of his field.
On the morning of April 23rd 1986, Randy read his horoscope out loud to his wife at breakfast: “What seemed a “no exit” proposition will be brighter. You will have more love and money as result. Get ready for new start. Display pioneering spirit. Maybe the network is going to call me today,” he said to his wife and then left for the office. As he walked into the newsroom an hour later the receptionist handed him a phone message: NBC News was calling to offer him a job!
Randy was now part of an elite group of photographers. Traveling around the country for NBC News, he covered all the major events of the day. From the Voyager’s non-stop flight around the globe, to climbing Mt. Whitney with 90-year-old Hulda Crooks, Randy saw it all first hand. His career in photojournalism gave him an unparalleled view of the world. Along the way he got to meet and photograph thousands of interesting people from physicist Stephen Hawking, to a river dredge boat captain on an Arizona canal, each one of them had a fascinating story to tell.
By the early 90’s, tabloid news had crept into mainstream journalism and it was time for change. Hollywood was calling and Randy Rogers Productions was formed to provide his camera services on commercials, music videos, documentaries, comedy shows and serial television. In 1991, Randy incorporated under the name Telefilm, Inc. and started focusing more on the making of the movies for all the major studios. Batman Forever, League of Their Own, Demolition Man, Disclosure and The Fugitive were just a few of the dozens of motion pictures he shot behind the scenes.
In 1993, Telefilm began producing press junkets for the motion picture industry, working on most of the largest marketing campaigns in Hollywood history. Clients included Disney, Warner Bros., Paramount, Universal, Sony, Dreamworks, MGM and Lionsgate. To date, Telefilm has been involved in the promotion of over 500 movies.
