Parker Brennon, Writer | Director | Producer

Ever since I was fifteen, I’ve been behind a camera. The first was a laptop with a low-res webcam. I’d set it up in objective angles and record my friends improvising murder mysteries. It’s safe to say my work has come a long way since graduating from Academy of Art University.

In 2016, I directed two short films. One came from my award-winning screenplay called
Haunt Me. It was funded through a Kickstarter campaign I launched, and after screening at a variety of festivals, the film landed on YouTube where it has gained over 130,000 views.

The second short I directed in 2016 is called
Elise’s Nightmare. It was an official selection at the 2017 Atlanta Horror Film Festival and also earned a positive review from horror expert Ashlee Blackwell. She runs an incredible site called Graveyard Shift Sisters which I highly recommend.

In 2017, I launched a new Kickstarter campaign which exceeded its funding goal. This project, Below the Trees, is a proof of concept for a feature-length story I wrote. The short was completed in 2018 and screened at festivals through the following year. We earned six awards and two nominations during that time.

Currently, I'm submitting my newest short, 
Winter's Blood, to film festivals. I also have some feature-length screenplays in development, so my next production will likely be one of those.

I pride myself in assembling great teams. Using creativity, effective communication, and leadership, I strive to bring out the best in everyone on set. Filmmaking is largely about collaboration and problem solving, and I enjoy learning from the talented people I work with. If you like what I do, don't hesitate to send me a message.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

"I always want to see more multi-dimensional women on screen. I grew up with films like Carnival of Souls and Let's Scare Jessica to Death, so atmospheric stories about women inspire my work."
