1Community (1C) is an entertainment production and co-finance company using the power of storytelling to drive real-world impact.

Founded in 2018 by veteran producer and activist Scott Budnick, 1C invests in projects with the potential to make “guerrilla impact,” finding bold new takes on the most pressing issues of our time.

From climate justice and racial equity to mental healthcare, every 1C production is connected to a cause. 1C’s first release, JUST MERCY, starring Michael B. Jordan sparked a national criminal justice reform advocacy campaign, and 2021’s RESPECT, starring Jennifer Hudson, led to a virtual music education portal for youth of color. 1Community partners with movement leaders to launch impact campaigns that connect viewers from what they see on screen to taking action in their communities, building a business on the belief that if we’re going to make a difference, we have to Move as 1.
