Check Out Dwayne Hurt’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dwayne Hurt.

Hi Dwayne, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
I am Dwayne Hurt from Baltimore, Maryland. I’m an actor, comedian, filmmaker, director, producer, writer, editor, and DJ. I always wanted to act and be the funny guy in movies; I’m inspired by people like Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. The Wayans brothers and people like Bernie Mac and Mike Epps. Acting-wise, Denzel Washington is my favorite. I started out making comedy skits on youtube after graduating from high school. My interview for the senior slide show at school is what made me feel like I could do this. When they showed my interview in an auditorium full of people, the audience reaction was all I needed to make my decision that made people laugh. Entertaining people is definitely what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have sold out over 12,000 red boxes in the country. Also, I have a film on Tubi TV, and Amazon Prime called The Weekend. It’s a crime drama; My new film Scared Crazy is in post-production. It’s a horror movie.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I am not going to Lie. It has been a bumpy road mainly because I had to learn to do everything myself. The most important part of all of this is marketing. I have it down pact now, but nobody pulled me to the side to tell me that I believe that’s a lot of independent artists’ biggest struggle.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I have films on Tubi TV, amazon prime, and Redbox. What do I do? I write, edit, direct, produce, act, DJ, etc. What sets me apart from others? I’m not selfish and open-minded, and I love helping people.

Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
I feel like if we don’t take risks, we never know if our dreams will come true or not. I take risks when filming a movie; never knowing which platform will pick it up is scary.
