After venturing out of the free lance photography world and quitting his full-time job to pursue filmmaking full-time him and his friend created the production company Redd Pen Media. They quickly became the go to guys locally in the south NJ/Philly area for music videos, documentaries, and other video work. Brad learned from the ground up through long nights of reading and watching movies to hands on as much as he could. Never stopping his education and always wanting to learn more and progress he ventured into the role of Director. With the hands of experience of several roles including, DP, 1st AC, 2nd AC, DIT, Grip, Gaffer, and constantly studying actors and going to acting workshops he finally felt ready to tackle filmmaking and truly tell a story. He figured that with over 100 music videos under his belt over the years as well as documentaries and hands on shooting he had what it takes to be a director. He even got involved in audio engineering and studied from one of the best engineers in the Milkboy studios located in Philly. He now shoots short films quite often. He wrote and directed his first project titled "MASK" which went on to become a top 10 finalist in the Canon Long Live Imagination contest presented by Ron Howard. Earning him some spotlight and the opportunity to meet with Ron, and several other industry professionals. He also created a short film for a Nokia/Sundance contest which placed top 5 and won him a pair of tickets to Sundance London. He loves entering contests and challenging himself and his crew and never stops learning. He reads about screenwriting, directing and anything else he can to stay up to date and in the know and be prepared for any situation. Just a very passionate filmmaker willing to step into any role and help create films.
