Walker Entertainer Academy

Walker Entertainer Academy (WEA) is a short film production and marketing company aimed at ethnic, under served artists. Delivering a First Friday Films international Showcase which focuses on a single short film each month whose online screening is coupled with an extensive filmmaker interview published in their Online Magazine, to date all past appearances have been of ethnic, under served cultural works. 

Additionally, for the past five years WEA has annually hosted an Indigenous People’s Holiday (former Columbus Day) weekend of ethnically focused short film marketing retreats including Black Movie Fest and Inland Empire Film Festival plus a similar Indigenous People Fest retreat on the Holiday itself with FREE 2020 filmmaker submissions received at WFCN. These October Holiday Retreats were America’s ONLY LIVE film festival events during our Nation’s 2020 COVID-19 surges. As well, this year Walker Entertainer Academy launched its wildly successful fee based film festival submissions marketing program for the personal AND professional development Black consultants of the new “Realize Your Potential” weekly web series. 

Additionally, WEA is currently designing a fee based ethnic short film media publicist program offering to be launched in 2021. As well, during the past five years Walker Entertainer Academy has produced nearly 10 shorts, with plans to next year produce a Black Lives Matter police training micro short film about the life long psychological effect on children who witness police violence perpetrated against their parents. Further, WEA Headmaster/Producer Phillip E. Walker has acted in 55 short films plus coaches talent in their “break into Hollywood”.
