Brian is an actor, writer, filmmaker, and comedian with a BFA in Theatre from Valdosta State University. He lives in Atlanta, where he writes, directs, and produces films with his production company, Cold Silver Films, in addition to being a freelance teacher of writing and theatre. His first feature film, the romantic comedy Uncommon Law, is now available on DVD, Blu-Ray, & digital download in the shop. He is also currently working on his first fantasy novel, Into The Black.
This past March I was given the opportunity to direct a production of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing at my old stomping grounds, Parkview High School in Lilburn, GA. I’ve worked with the students there several times before, including a 24 Hour Play Festival I ran for them back in December, however this was my first time directing a full play over there. But when your favorite teacher from high school asks for your help, that’s what you do!

The Uncommon Law premiere was a success! We had a great turnout and it was such a wonderful experience to finally unveil the movie to the public.
Thank you to everyone who was there! I’ll have information on DVDs & Blu-Rays in the next few months. In the meantime, here are a few of the photos from the red carpet and the Q&A with cast/crew!
I had a great time talking with the Atlanta Film Chat podcast this week! We had a really fun conversation talking about Uncommon Law, writing, the struggles of making a film without a budget, my love for romantic comedies & Japanese RPGs, and more. Please download & give it a listen!
When you think of an “indie film” you don’t typically think of a romantic comedy. The genre gets derided as being formulaic and unimaginative. However, filmmakers like this week’s guest Brian Work disagree and only want to make the films they want to make.
The time has finally arrived! After four years of blood, sweat, tears, and sleepless nights, Uncommon Law is complete and ready for its world premiere! I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to be able to make this announcement at long last.
Uncommon Law is my first feature film, which I wrote, directed, produced, & edited. It tells the story of Brendan Walker (Mick Taylor) and Melissa Clark (Christie Vozniak), two best friends and longtime roommates who, after years of bailing each other out of bad dates by pretending to be married, receive a notice from the government that they’re now common law married.
The premiere will take place at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross on Saturday, November 21st at 8pm. Doors will open at 7pm, so come early to mingle and walk the red carpet! The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast & crew.
Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Advance tickets can be picked up at will call starting at 7pm on the night of the show. Concessions and full bar will be available (cash only for concessions/bar).
It’s here! Uncommon Law has been four years in the making, and I’m finally ready to unveil the official movie trailer! I’m elated with how well it turned out, and I’m looking forward to premiering the film itself so I can share the finished product with the world. Please check it out & share it with your friends!
Just updated the site with a new section for Videos. It currently features some of my digital shorts, three Michinoku Driver sketch shows, and a couple full-length improv shows with The High Ceilings. Hope you enjoy!
