Wayne Armour

President/ CEO

Relocating from Sacramento, CA to Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area, Wayne Armour has over 10 years experience in Producing and Directing music videos. In addition, this self-taught creative director is skilled in filming short, feature, and documentaries as a producer and a director of Photography.


Wayne's vision for The Bleak Empire is to mentor upcoming Filmmakers who lack in having resources or funds to produce their own films.  His belief is that all stories should be told regardless of resource constraints. Wayne remembers being the little guy so his passion is to reach back and lend a helping hand down to other storytellers.

Having a strong creative and diverse team to support his vision is what he hangs his hat on because he knows that an idea can only grow so far without a solid team. With The Bleak Empire on his shoulders, Wayne's passion for people, the underdogs, and the arts, is the secret sauce to expand the company.
