Emerging Actors Initiative is an intensive 8-month program that champions vetted actors, tasking and guiding them to their first guest star and/or studio feature role. All of the actors have an extensive body of work, impeccable work ethic, and the talent to back it up.

“I am so honored to be a part of the Blackmagic Collective’s Emerging Actors Program. Not only am I surrounded by a fiercely talented group of artists, but the support and excitement amongst the group are infectious. I cannot wait to see what doors we knock down and what ceilings we break!” – Christine Weatherup, Actor/Writer/Director
“Roller Coaster from Day 1. Homework, meetings, events, scheduling, reading, branding, re-branding. This feels like no other program before. It’s like Blackmagic Collective will stop at nothing to see you succeed. 100% committed and 100% kicking your ass for you to get out of your own way. Total Bliss.” -Djaka Souare, Actor/Writer/Director
“I need to thank the BMC Emerging Actors Initiative, for bestowing this amazing opportunity on me. I said amazing, because I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time. Sharing with my peer fellows has been energizing. I am energized, again, about my career. It feels good, to have received the push that I needed to keep pushing. Now, I am more focused.” – Summer Walters, Actor/Producer
