When Brent was only 4 years old his father took him to see Star Wars at his grandfather’s theater in Taos, New Mexico. Like many others in his generation, it was the very beginning of a rewarding film career. Completely taken by the power of his cinematic experience, he took hold of his crayons and set out to illustrate a 47 page book of what he had seen on the silver screen.
Later as a young teen he began casting his siblings and friends in home video productions and took every opportunity to get his teachers at school to allow him to turn oral reports into video documentary projects. Because there were no film or video classes available at the time, he also persuaded the librarian into allowing him to become a library aide. But the agreement was that instead of helping with the books he would teach himself how to edit on a dusty VHS editing console that the high school staff used to make dubs.
Immediately after high school graduation, Brent secured an internship at a local TV station while a freshman at the University of New Mexico. His college education would become a long and winding road. He took film classes part-time where he could and started work as a professional freelancer, shooting for NBC, CNN, and the host of national network broadcast companies. He also found himself writing and directing local/regional commercials, and working on a slew of corporate videos - all while supporting a new marriage and family. By the time he finally graduated from college in 1999 he was already an accomplished Videographer, Sound Recordist, AVID Editor and Director/Producer.
The past decade has been filled with work on award winning short films, documentaries, commercials and other productions. Recently Brent completed work as editor and visual effects supervisor and artist on the feature film "Adventures of a Teenage Dragonslayer". More feature work will soon follow.
