Videos & Film
In 2011, Brian created the award-winning Guitar Man, a movie project that he wrote, produced, and acted in that was filmed in downtown Reno, Nevada.
Brian wrote the film based on a dream that he had. He wanted to share the message that we all have a lot in common and that our true gifts reside within ourselves. Guitar Man was well received. It was accepted to 11 movie festivals, was a winner at the Love Unlimited Film and Art Festival, won an honorable mention prize in the narrative short category at the 2011 Los Angeles Movie Awards, and won a Golden Reel Award from the Nevada Film Festival.

Searching For HappinessA New Short Film Showing You How to Find Happiness Within
People chase happiness in many ways and often never find it. I feel rewarded when I give without expectation of receiving something in return and when I experience random acts of kindness and I sought to convey this message in the scenes of the film. By using the black and white/color dichotomy along with a simple and powerful piano score it is my intent that each viewer be moved by the deeper level of the message and fully understand the meaning by the end of my short film. I also dipped my toes in the old silent film genre because I am a huge fan. With the invaluable help of the amazing young filmmaker Nye Green (www.nyegreen.com) who was the director of photography as well as co-director I am truly happy with the finished piece.
“Searching for Happiness” was picked up by Gaia (Conscious Media company) to air on their website as well as to be part of their Spiritual Cinema Circle subscription program. We are very pleased and honored to be able to share this film giving it a much broader viewing demographic!
