Meet Dmani Q Williams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dmani Q Williams.

Dmani, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started off as a sports administration major at Georgia State University, I never really had intentions on getting into film until my little sister started acting. After discussing with my friends, I made a decision to fully commit and change my major to film with a minor theatre. If there is no opportunity for me, I’m the type of guy who will create one for myself; so, me and my sister angel created a web-series called “My Guardian Conscience.” The show wasn’t professional at all but It was something that showed my siblings and myself that we can do anything if we put in the work. I have 6 siblings and I’m the eldest so being a great example for them isn’t a want for me, it’s a must.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There has definitely been some obstacles, but I feel as though they’re all lessons to learn from. The biggest obstacle I am still facing as we speak is waiting until my moment. As a person who usually makes opportunities for myself i never had to play the waiting game that often so it is just taking a little adjusting too. I have a quote by Frederick Douglas tattooed on me that says “without struggle there is no progress” that I believe is one of the truest statements ever made so I never get to down about things. I understand proper preparation prevents poor performance so while I’m waiting, I properly preparing so when the moment comes, I am able to have longevity.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I am an Actor and screenwriter. For writing the genres I specialize in are comedy/drama and action. I have a production company called “574films” which has produced two web series (My Guardian Conscience & Frog and Pickle) and two short films (By way of Art & Wasted Improvisations). What sets my apart as an actor is that I have ambition like no other, I also don’t want anything handed to me. I love the work that goes into acting and I’m willing to work harder than the next. I also feel as though I have a great grasp on life, I understand that things are more than what they appear. Acting is more than just acting it’s the ability to understand why and how someone would do something. In the words of my professor Susan G. Reid “Acting is playing an honest and truthful character in a set of imaginary circumstances.”

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing, I am on a great path and I am thankful for the things that I went through to get to where I am now.
