My name's Colley Bailey.  I was raised on a family farm in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. Being a naturally adventurous kid, I spent my free time exploring nature, swimming, fishing, and revving engines. 

I caught the acting bug while doing my best James Dean impersonation in a high school stage production of Rebel Without a Cause.  Soon after, I got an agent in Little Rock, headed to the University of Central Arkansas, declared myself a Theater major, and began acting in as many plays, short films, and commercials as I could over the next few years.

By the fall of 2009, the time was right to make the jump to Los Angeles to further my career.  I spent my time filming, arranging meetings, auditioning plenty, writing my own material, and even occasionally finding time to hit up the beach.  I had classes with Ivana Chubbuck Studios and worked with Actor’s Advantage Showcase, forming relationships with many of today’s top casting directors. 

In 2010, I was able to kickstart my feature film career with leading roles in Donner Pass and Madison County. After the hard work and eventual success of those films, I decided to push myself even further. I began writing Worldline: The Story of Talon Evans and studying to become a producer of my own content.

Tired of going out for "Frat Guy #3" in a seemingly endless cycle of auditions that didn't align with my artistic sense of purpose, as well as an increasing disdain for LA traffic, I decided to bring my film career back home to Arkansas and form Lone Rock Productions.

With a focus on creating original, timely, and important feature film experiences, Lone Rock seeks to entertain, educate, and enlighten audiences worldwide. The incredible talent pool of writers, directors, cinematographers, composers coming out of Arkansas makes me more hopeful than ever for the future.
