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.
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!
I’m incredibly excited about the fantastic soundtrack we’ve assembled for Uncommon Law. It’s a great combination of artists, ranging from a band I’ve been a fan of for years (Jonas Sees In Color), friends from all walks of life (college, Florida, Chicago, & my old video game website,) and even a track from my cousin. Music does wonders in setting the tone for a movie, and I’m confident that we’ve assembled the perfect soundtrack for this movie.
Uncommon Law is FINALLY in the last phase of post-production! The last four years of my life have been spent writing, producing, directing, & editing this movie, & I’m happy to say that it’s just about ready to see the light of day. Within the coming weeks I’ll be releasing a trailer and posting info on screenings in Atlanta & Chicago. Please like the Uncommon Law FB page and/or sign up for my newsletter to get updates on the film as it nears completion! Thank you!
