Brian Bernhard

Long Beach, California

I am a multi-award winning (EMMY, TELLY, various festivals) transmedia producer, motion graphics designer, director, writer, videographer, interaction designer, interviewer and editor; who has been working in professional broadcast television, video production, post-production, motion-graphics, interactive narrative, game design and web-video for over ten years. I am also incredibly passionate about crafting inspirational stories about amazing people and brilliant ideas.

While in NYC; I created, produced, shot & edited an EMMY nominated educational television series about artists called ''ART or something like it!'', an EMMY award winning education magazine series called "Study With The Best", as well as, many other award winning television series, documentary projects, magazine shows, promotional packages, interviews, presentation packages and public service announcements for ''CUNY TV Channel 75'', ''WNYE TV 25'' and ''ABC World News Now''.

For the past few years I have been focusing my creative efforts on short-form documentary movies distributed online. My most recent project is a large-scale docu-series about the creative process of eccentric performing artists called ''A FOOL'S IDEA'' (which won 3 awards at the 2014 LA Web-Series Festival for Outstanding Series, Directing & Editing and was nominated for best documentary series at the 2014 Miami Web Festival). I have also been producing ''behind-the-scene'' documentary packages, promotional EPK interviews (for feature films and crowd-funding campaigns), as well as, other award-winning motion picture projects.
