Brianne on set for "A Place For Ashes"

     Hello! My name's Brianne (they/she), and I'm a video director and editor based in New York City. I graduated with my BFA from Emerson College's esteemed Media Arts Production program (class of 2020, an incredible time to graduate college!).

 

During my time at Emerson, I had the opportunity to work on my thesis project, "After," a deeply personal film about PTSD after sexual assault. Since then, I have been devoted to writing from a place of personal truth and creating content that can initiate real change. I am passionate about diversity and inclusivity and strive to increase the representation of all women and queer people in the industry.

My award-winning debut short film, "A Place For Ashes," is making its way through the festival circuit. It is a coming-of-age story of two sisters repairing a strained relationship. So far, it has been accepted into three festivals, including the Long Island International Film Expo. "A Place For Ashes" is the audience-choice winner for the 2023 NY Lift-Off Festival and I have recently been nominated for Best Director at the NY Long Island Film Festival.

Recently, I edited a short feminist horror called "Rotten Meat," (dir. Rebekah Strauss) which premiered at the Angelika East in NYC. This paired with my previous psychedelic thriller made me realize I want to specialize in the horror/thriller genre featuring women and queer-led stories.

I strongly believe in building a community of like-minded creatives. If I get to edit something cool, I'm happy! 

Aside from filmmaking, my passions include dying my hair, collaging, cooking, playing indie video games, and my cat Bean.
