As an industry veteran with experience as an actor, producer, and creative leader, Brantley Dunaway was a natural choice to be featured in Authority Magazine as part of its series on entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry. He shared his thoughts on a wide variety of subjects and offered advice and tips to other entrepreneurs, especially those just wanting to promote diversity in the entertainment industry, including advice like “As a musician, producer, and now as a documentary filmmaker, I try to create work that is representative of our diverse country and tell stories that haven’t been told enough. I think it’s important to see different perspectives and points of view, and I hope that my work can help contribute to that.”
Brantley Dunaway in response to the question “Can you tell us a story about a particular individual who was impacted by the work you are doing?” replied:
“I’m working on a documentary series right now called Faire Wind and Song, and it’s all about cultural evolutionism through music and cuisine. We’ve been traveling around the country and world, filming musical performances and interviewing people from all different backgrounds. It’s been really amazing to see the impact that this project is having on people. We’ve had people from all walks of life tell us that they feel seen and represented in our work, and that means everything to me.”
When asked if he could recommend three things the community/society/the industry can do to help address the root of the diversity issues in the entertainment business, Brantley Dunaway commented:
1. Cast a wider net when it comes to hiring and talent scouting in order to bring in a more diverse range of voices and perspectives.
2.Make an effort to create opportunities for underrepresented groups within the industry, such as through internship and mentorship programs.
- Increase representation of diversity both on-screen and behind the scenes in order to better reflect the world we live in today.
