Tall, unintentionally loud, and originally from Texas, Brian L. Perkins is a former amateur comedian with no dietary discipline who went grey at 17. He has created a 2 mile musical sculpture played by a speeding car with 7 robot arms, met the Unabomber in person, and filmed broadcast commercials with his cell phone.
Brian is a writer, creative director, and director who firmly believes: 1) that you have to buy people’s attention by being interesting; and 2) the best way to do that is often investigating the space where the spectacular meets the mundane. He also misses the era of jingles and is pretty sure your business needs one.
Born in SF, raised in LA Ben Leavitt is a man who will take anything slung at him from a Thai street vendor who has an inclination towards dark soothing blues (none of that pastel stuff, though).
He loves telling stories and people, so directing is the perfect fit. There’s nothing better than collaborating with wildly creative people. He loves meticulously planning every single shot, and then embracing a completely unexpected direction on set.
He cries every time E.T. makes all the bikes fly. Like, every time. He can’t help it. And that's basically why he’s a filmmaker. Whether it’s crying or laughing, being able to tell a story and make people FEEL something so intensely is an incredible feeling for him.
Someday, he wants to go to New Zealand. Did you know there are no poisonous animals in New Zealand? Like, none. Whereas Australia has pretty much all of them. Also, Lord Of The Rings. So, New Zealand is probably next on his vacation list. Or Toledo, Ohio. But probably New Zealand
