Genesis’ vision to encourage S.C.’s home-grown entertainment industry takes root in the form of documentaries, short films, web series, and collaboration with other artists.
Emergent Films is the original entertainment division of Genesis Studios. Emergent Films began as a plan to help South Carolina overcome some longstanding hurdles to becoming the filmmaking destination it aspired to be–by developing students and recent graduates to be the foundation of an indigenous crew base for Hollywood films and series shooting in S.C. To date, Emergent Films has resulted in 4 documentaries, two short films, a web series, and collaboration with other artists to help their entertainment dreams become reality.
And the future looks even brighter.
It is our mission to develop modestly budgeted independent films and web series with engaging stories, expert craftsmanship, and southern flavor whenever possible.
Bringing the Fallen Home is an acclaimed documentary about how our nation cares for its fallen service members. A follow-up entitled The Gold Star will be released for Memorial Day 2017. The Trunk is Genesis’ version of a Twilight Zone style serial with new episodes on the way in early 2017.
2016 also brought some interesting firsts as Genesis edited a dramatic faith-based feature film and pulled together 8 days of intense shooting to help wrap production for a struggling motion picture project out of Georgia. In both circumstances, our experience, creativity, and our knowledge of story-telling enabled us to help these other artists bring their projects to completion.
Stay tuned. There’s much more to come.
