Before launching his own entertainment outfit, Brett Dismuke served as President/COO of The Swirl Group, President of Moguldom Entertainment, and previously as the Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Urban Programming for RLJ Entertainment's One Village studio. Brett has over 20 years of marketing, production, sales and branding experience.

 Through partnership with Swirl Films in 2014, Dismuke formed The Swirl Group. Through the power of their collaboration, the company established itself as the leading urban independent production company in North America, with over 80 productions in their catalog. This multi-hyphenate outfit was devoted to offering high-quality production value at lower costs, including production of independent features and multi-camera content, casting, budget creation, scheduling, post-production, talent relations and distribution. With the solid foundation, So Chi Entertainment continues the legacy, priding itself on developing the highest quality productions, developing the most interesting content and acquiring the best product available within its genre.

In addition to locating and securing new content, Dismuke oversees strategic planning, financial management, brand-building and product lines for So Chi Entertainment. Over the last few years, he has acquired and/or produced several films; including notables such as 35 & Ticking, a theatrical comedy starring Kevin Hart, Meagan Good, Wendy Raquel Robinson and Nicole Ari Parker; What My Husband Doesn't Know, a musical stage play written and directed by David E. Talbert and starring Michelle Williams and Brian White; and All Things Fall Apart, a critically-acclaimed, drama, starring Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Mario Van Peebles, Lynn Whitfield and Ray Liotta.


After graduating from the University of Southern California, Brett Dismuke has worked for Motown, PolyGram Group Distribution, Universal Music and Video Distribution, Hollywood Records, UrbanWorks Entertainment, First Look Studios and Image Entertainment. His list of projects supervised includes Jay-Z, Brian McKnight, Mary J. Blige, Mike Epps, The Cosby Show and Ultimate Fighting Championship; as well as numerous award-winning independent films.
