THE BEGINNING: BEHIND THE CAMERA
A native of Los Angeles, Brian came to appreciate visual storytelling during his high school film classes. Initially interested in cinematography, he continued his education at Brooks Institute, where he studied film production. This was followed by freelance work as a camera operator and assistant cameraman for local independent film/video productions, and as a production assistant for television shows.
A NEW CHAPTER: MUSIC
Brian gradually became intrigued by the breadth of musical styles in films - past to present. He began to develop his musical knowledge by studying music theory, orchestration (under the guidance of the late Robert Drasnin, at UCLA), world instruments, and film scoring - and started exercising his musical creativity via synthestration.
Having collaborated with award-winning producers, Brian's music has been featured in corporate videos, dance recitals, community events, and other media. He is a member of the Society of Composers & Lyricists (SCL).
TODAY & TOMORROW
Recently - with the encouragement of Chris Meledandri (Illumination Animation) - Brian is networking with filmmakers, particularly within the animation sphere. He also enjoys corresponding with Hollywood film composers, session musicians, and other film industry professionals - in an effort to further educate himself about the art, process, and business of scoring films.
Away from music, Brian works primarily as a filmmaker for European destination weddings, Hollywood events, and real estate. (Wilmott Productions)
His hobbies include watching films, improvising on the piano, listening to orchestral music, attending classical concerts, reading history, traveling, and visiting U.S. National Parks.
