BMC_emerging actors initiative_updated.png

Kayla helped create and is the Initiative Director for Blackmagic Collective's Career Advancement Diversity InitiativeEmerging Actors. This is an eight month intensive program for vetted professional actors who have starred in several indie projects and are being guided their first guest star television and/or studio feature role. This initiative works closely with the First Frame Initiative for vetted new and upcoming directors who have the opportunity to direct the professional actors and receive redirection from veteran directors in the industry. These initiatives have taken classes and workshops with Champions such as Tiffany Little Canfield, Kate Rhodes James, Katie Locke O'Brien, Michael Kostroff, Bonnie Gillespie, and many more.
