IFNYC#24: Brains - A Web Series by Bri Castellini

Bri Castellini - NYC Filmmaker

For this episode, Bri Castellni spoke with me about her web series 'Brains'.  The series is about love, friendship, neuropsychology, and zombies.

Indie Film NYC's Guide to Producing Your Film

One of the missions of this podcast is to help filmmakers more easily produce and distribute their content so they can learn to develop their skills as a filmmaker, find their voice and build an audience around their brand.  To that end, I wrote a film production guide that covers all aspects of filmmaking, from Concept to Distribution.

The book is available on Amazon as a kindle download for $2.99, but for fans of the podcast I’m giving away complimentary copies for anyone who subscribes to my mailing list.  The mailing list is sent out two or three times a month and will keep you updated on key episodes of the podcast and information about independent filmmaking.


Brains - The Series

Set three years after the zombie apocalypse, "Brains" follows college student Alison Sumner.  The unique angle of this series is that a zombie can act and appear like a normal human being as long as they are able to eat enough brains.

Alison is a neuropsychology student who is video blogging now that the epidemic is dying down.  Her dream is to settle down, get married, have children and get a dog.  Her biggest problem comes when she finds out that the man of her dreams is indeed one of the undead.

The series was created and written by Bri Castellini.

Bri has been creating content for years.  She writes, blogs, YouTube's and then picked up a camera to film this series.  She understands that in order to develop your voice as a filmmaker there is no other way than to roll up your sleeves and get involved.
Bri has the kind of drive and passion that is infectious and I hope you find a lot of value in your approach to your own work as you listen to her share her story during our interview.

Bri Castellini's Next Project

Ace and Anxious follows Emma, an asexual graphic designer with generalized anxiety disorder. She learns about the anxiety-relieving properties of sex and decides to give it the old college try in order to potentially "cure" her anxiety and panic attacks. So she does what any enterprising 21st century woman would do: places an ad on Craigslist.
