Austin and Brooke met at USC film school in 2012. They started collaborating in 2014 after realizing they have the same taste in just about everything (music, film, books, spicy thai soups…it was all very uncanny.) Together they have had over 30 comedy sketches featured on the homepage of Funny Or Die, and have directed for brands such as NBC, The Voice, Leapfrog, VTech, Huckberry, Chacos Sandals, Otterbox, Shipstation, MovieGrade, EmazingLights, and Spigen, along with multiple short films that are currently in the festival running.

 

Austin’s background in producing and Brooke’s in post-production create the perfect all-in-one directing duo. Austin has worked on studio features such as Annapurna’s Joy and Netflix’s Bird Box, independent features like The Mad Whale, and countless music videos and short films. Brooke has edited music videos for Bastille, The White Stripes, Andrew Bird, Sharon Van Etten, and Dagny, along with branded spots for companies like Netflix, IBM, T-Mobile, Attn, and Clorox.

 

And if you need a soup place recommendation, they got you.
