Brendan Beachman is a small town Coloradan -- born and bred. A graduate of the film program at Montana State University, in 2010 he reluctantly left the Rocky Mountains for the concrete metropolis of Los Angeles. The contrast of locations and cultures that he has experienced in his life have had a direct influence on his filmmaking. He now lives in the beautiful beach town of Santa Monica with his girlfriend and Labrador retriever. When he's not directing, he's in the rehearsal studio, beating on his drums with his band, or exploring the vast array of landscapes California has to offer.
