Damian C. King

After graduating with a BFA in performance from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2010, Damian C. King has become a prolific filmmaker who has been working successfully in the film industry for the past decade. He has accumulated over 35 combined credits as a producer/director alone, having created hundreds of episodes, features and shorts for web and television-based content.

Damian is a rarity in production: a man with expertise in every vital area. In addition to his directing and producing credits, he is a veteran first assistant director and stunt coordinator, which has given him an incredible mastery of knowledge over film logistics. Notably, he produced and directed the award-winning web series “Project Child: Origins”, a few episodes of the multi-million view YouTube Sensation “Cartoon Hookups”, and a travel show called “Weird World Adventures” which is finishing its first season and airs on the VIDI Space platform. In 2019, he produced the star-studded whodunit “Manipulated”, which was the premiere feature and an award winner in the Louisville Film Festival, as well as a horror comedy entitled “Geisting” which starred notable horror personality Bonnie Aarons.

An avid believer in supporting the next generation of filmmakers, Damian has mentored members and graduates of several film schools including the American Film Institute where he frequently donated his time. He was recently requested to join a few promising graduates on an ambitious film docu-feature tentatively entitled “MKHexe” and was happy to come on board. During his summers, he volunteers with young children teaching the basics of fight choreography at camp. In addition, he joined an ambitious team to produce a charity-focused feature for kids by kids entitled “Kids Can!”
On the horizon, Damian has a broad spectrum of exciting projects ready to go. Most notably is the psychological horror feature “Red Angel” which he plans to direct and produce post haste. He believes the movie to be a true diamond in the rough and a compelling genre blend that is sure to capture the attention of the masses. Along with this, he is proud to be in pre-production as producer for, “The Baby Pact”, a sequel to the wildly successful romantic comedy “The Wedding Pact”.
Damian is an entrepreneur with three different business faces. He formed the production company “Fantasy Forge Films” to manage all filmwork, co-created “Cursed Dice Games” which focuses on tabletop gaming, and developed his persona “Vicious Avarice” to manage his writing career, which includes award-winning poetry and a focus on fantasy stories.
