Semi Anthony is originally from Kampala, Uganda, the third child out of six brothers and one sister. Growing up in a poverty stricken country, Semi lacked the resources around him to fulfill an acting career. He dreamed of living here in the States and, when an opportunity came to do so, he jumped on it without hesitation. Semi sold all his belongings with no idea what he was about to get into and next thing you know, he had a plane ticket to New York. With only fifty dollars that a friend helped him out with in his pocket, he somehow managed to last fourteen days in one of the most expensive cities in the United States. He really maximized my resources and found himself in Boston a short time later. Semi had made friends, who put a roof over his head and allowed him to earn money to make his way out to Los Angeles.
When Semi arrived in LA, he immediately enrolled himself into acting classes and began doing background work, which was a great way to make connections. He began going on auditions where he started booking parts, including a role on “Modern Family” where his confidence was growing. The ball really began to roll when Semi met Stephen Durham and they put together a team of creative minded people. Together we would make our own feature films. Our first feature “The Butchers” has distribution both in the United States and the U.K. Recently wrapping a new horror feature, releasing in 2015 and more projects in development, they continue to grow as a production company looking at a bright year ahead.
