On Hollowhood, “the best independent film magazine in the UK”, Bryan Brooks is the producer, financier, writer, editor, set designer, fight choreographer, special effects artist, stunt coordinator, sound designer, colourist, costume designer, and lead actor in new film, Wrecker.
Can one man put forth enough effort to make a splash big enough to affect the world? Bryan Brooks thinks so.
This year, Bryan released his independent feature film, Wrecker, and he is already making waves in the film industry. Bryan is the film’s producer, financier, writer, editor, set designer, fight choreographer, special effects artist, stunt coordinator, sound designer, colorist, costume designer, and lead actor.
So, how can one man wear so many hats? Simple… Bryan Brooks has a LOT of drive.
Before setting his sights on the entertainment industry, Bryan Brooks had quite a busy life. He has weathered some of the worst working conditions on the planet as a Bering Sea Crab Fisherman, he climbed some of the world’s tallest mountains, and he backpacked through dozens of countries by himself.
Ready for his next challenge, he decided to tackle an unheard-of goal… to make a feature-length movie all by himself that can compete with the big studios.
The time and determination it takes to learn each discipline in the filmmaking process can be overwhelming for many, but for Bryan Brooks it was simply another goal to be accomplished, and Bryan had a goal bigger than just making a movie. Bryan has spent the last 10 years learning each and every discipline of the filmmaking process for one reason, to make the world a better place!
Changing The World Through Story
“Stories can affect us, stories can change our perception, enhance our knowledge, make us sad, make us happy, and make us better people. I get sick of spending hours looking for something interesting and stimulating to watch on TV only to be disappointed 5 minutes into a film.
I want to tell stories that teach the audience something useful, not lull people to sleep. A story with interesting characters can teach life lessons and practical skills. I want my audience to be entertained but also get something out of their viewing experience. You know that feeling you get after reading a good book? Knowing you’ve taken away something valuable from the time you spent reading it?
“I want filmmakers to up their game. The vast majority of studio-backed films teach their viewers nothing, just mindless violence and predictable plot lines. With just a little effort, filmmakers can reach into their audience’s minds, make them think, help them understand the world and its issues better. That’s what I aim to do with my films.”
