BRIAN COLEMAN, CO-FOUNDER
Director, Filmmaker, Screenwriter, Audio Engineer
A former music talent agent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), in New York as well as Los Angeles, Brian graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics and has worked on both the executive and creative sides of the music industry at the highest levels. After leaving CAA, where he rose to music agent at a young age by working with acts like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Darren Criss, and Lil Durk in the infancies of their touring careers, Brian would go into a more hands-on approach in both talent development and the creative process as a whole. Management partnerships with music heavyweights from James Rosemond Jr. to Joe Simpson, allowed Brian to not only develop and work with some of the top current producers and artists in the marketplace, he also spent years as an audio engineer, while also shooting music videos for clients, where he would hone his skills enough to become one of the more sought after vocal engineers in Los Angeles. Now recently back in Philadelphia, Brian has taken his love for both music and film to become one of the hottest young directors in the Philadelphia area.
