Videos & Film

In addition to writing, speaking and acting, Brian enjoys creating his own projects that carry inspiring, positive, and heartfelt messages. His most recent film project was the short film Searching for Happiness. The story focuses on an unhappy man, alone and unloved, who struggles to find meaning in his black-and-white reality. Over the course of a day, he learns that it is through kindness and our connection to others that we find true happiness.

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.

Brian has also begun to create videos utilizing his writings in a variety of unique ways to share messages of hope, inspiration and positivity. Feel free to share them to spread the good vibes!

Brian has had the pleasure of working with viral inspirational thought leaders Prince EA and Jay Shetty in a number of videos.

Searching For Happiness

A New Short Film Showing You How to Find Happiness Within
Telling a story that shares the importance of helping others and the fulfillment and joy that comes with serving in this way, is what I had in mind when I wrote my new film, “Searching For Happiness”.

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 ( who was the director of photography as well as co-director I am truly happy with the finished piece.

Synopsis: An unhappy man, alone and unloved, struggles to find meaning in his black and white reality. Over the course of a day, he learns that it is through kindness and our connection to others that we find true happiness.

“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!

Guitar Man

An Inspirational Movie Short by G. Brian Benson

In 2011 Brian finished working on a movie short filmed in downtown Reno, NV. called Guitar Man. The movie was written, produced and acted in by Brian with the idea of sharing many valuable messages. It tells the story of a down on his luck blues guitar player who plays for money at night on the streets of Reno and his interactions with others.

Some of the messages that Brian hopes to convey are the value of giving, connecting with and accepting others for who they are and living life on your own terms. The movie was filmed and directed by the very talented Michael Sweeney of everything to nothing studios.

Synopsis: A street musician, ‘Guitar Man’ has a gift for playing the blues on his guitar and connecting with others. His love for music and for people super cedes everything else in his life. Although on the surface he doesn’t have much, that doesn’t stop him from sharing two simple messages, “that we all have a lot in common” and “that our true gifts reside within ourselves”.
