In 2001, Ri’chard worked as a production assistant/intern on the Academy Award winning HBO documentary “Murder on a Sunday Morning”. Ri’chard then moved his love for film and TV to Atlanta, GA where he hoped to participate in the booming film community there. Unfortunately he would become a part of the corporate world for quite a few years pushing his dreams of film to the background. Unsatisfied with his desk job, he started directing sketch comedy spoofs, and in 2009, Comcast Communications bought the rights to Ri’chard’s sketch of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies”. The media giant placed the sketch on its on- demand parody channel in which it garnered a #1 rating.
In 2011, Ri’chard left the corporate world and co-founded 3rd Fathom Entertainment with business partner Zach Davis and wrote the screenplay for The Final Project (2016). After 4 years of dedication to making the screenplay a reality, the duo theatrically released The Final Project with the help of New York based distribution company, CAVU Pictures. CAVU released the film the- atrically in a wide release beginning on March 4, 2016 in across America.
The Final Project was the first feature film and directorial debut from Ri’chard. It also made Taylor Ri’chard one of the only African-Americans to both direct and write a horror film that was theatrically released, the last was Ernest Dickerson with Bones (2001). He is currently preparing for the release of his second feature film, Hallowed Be Thy Name (2019).
