Welcome to Emergent Films! We’re excited to launch this program as a key step in finally moving S.C. forward toward the goal of a living, breathing home-grown film industry in the great Palmetto State. When Genesis Studios opened the doors to its new facility last August, we promised that we were committed to making things happen. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will our long-range goals materialize overnight—BUT (and this is the important part) they will NEVER happen if we don’t take deliberate, strategic steps forward. Genesis Studios was step 1. Emergent Films is step 2.
Please take a moment to browse around–and be sure to take note of the sponsors who have generously helped to make this happen. We owe them a great deal. You will find informa-
tion explaining the ins and outs of Emergent and why so many people have already jumped on board to help make it succeed, daily updates on the progress of the first two Emergent projects, important news about the industry here in S.C. and what Genesis Studios is doing to help move it along, and much, much more. Some of the information is fairly comprehensive (not brief), but we felt it necessary to be specific so that everyone would realize this is not a pie-in-the-sky goal without a roadmap to get there.
This is and will continue to be a group effort unlike anything ever attempted in S.C. filmmaking before. It’s happening, folks! We truly believe this is the beginning of what so many of us have been waiting for for a long, long time.
The simple truth is S.C. is most likely never going to become Hollywood East, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a living, breathing film industry in the state.
