My name's Brian MacNeel and, like most people on Vimeo I imagine, I am an aspiring filmmaker. I come from a literary and film studies background. It wasn't until my senior year of college that I purchased a camera and decided to start shooting. Most of the work that the universe has thrown my way has been intimate, promotional kind of stuff. My dream is to move into music videos or short narratives. Although, lately I've been thinking that documentaries would be kind of fun as well.
I am mostly an art-house cinema fan. I love contemporary art directors like Haneke and Wong Kar-Wai as well as the classics like Hitchcock and Kubrick. I try to read critical readings of films as much as possible. I love talking about films and finding their cultural or literary significance as much as I love getting behind the camera. Feel free to email me if you ever need work done or have film ideas!
