Andrew Bracken

San Diego, CA

Andrew Bracken is a producer of digital media and has worked in both the film and video game industries for over 15 years. Andrew's artistic focus seeks to explore new and innovative forms of documentary storytelling told with an artistic sensibility, and seeks to promote discussion rather than debate, using question marks rather than exclamation points. Watching documentary media seems too often like taking vitamins or eating your vegetables; they may not be fun, but they are good for you. Andrew believes that documentaries do not have to be boring and can be just as entertaining and poetic as any good piece of fiction.

His documentary works include To the Other Side, a film about an American expatriate who deserted the U.S. Army in the 1950s and fled to the Iron Curtain to settle in East Germany, and Chicago, an experimental audio documentary on mental illness. He was selected for the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2004 as part of the Berlinale Film Festival and video game projects on which he has worked have been nominated for multiple Interactive Arts and Sciences awards. His video game credits include LittleBigPlanet Karting, Pinball Heroes, and MLB The Show.
