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.
A short play that I wrote will be featured in The BuzzFeed Plays, a night of 5-minute plays based on BuzzFeed articles. My play, “It’s All Relative,” is based on the bastion of journalistic integrity that is 18 Photos of Albert Einstein Looking Super Chill. If you’ve ever wondered what a sitcom would be like starring FDR & Eleanor Roosevelt with Albert Einstein as the wacky next door neighbor, then this is your chance!
Happy to announce that my two man comedy group, Michinoku Driver, will be performing at this year’s Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, Thursday March 20th at 8pm! We had a lot of fun performing there with The High Ceilings last year, and we’ve got something fun in store for this one. Tickets are on sale now!
Michinoku Driver presents “An Even Briefer Misunderstanding of A Brief Understanding of Time”
Michinoku Driver’s Brian Work & John Ugolini are seekers of knowledge, and it is to this end that they have conceived a very ambitious 20 minute condensed version of Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time.” There’s just one minor setback: They haven’t actually read the book. But why should they let that stop them?
Over the last three years I’ve spent countless hours on my first feature film, Uncommon Law. Between writing, casting, filming, editing, etc., it’s more or less taken over my life. Now I can finally say that the first full cut is done. The road isn’t over yet, because there’s still polish, publicity, festivals, & distribution ahead. But it’s nice to see that light at the end of the tunnel shine a little brighter.
