Directors Bio:

Brian Andrews is a contemporary artist, critic, and visual effects supervisor currently living in San Francisco. His work employs a range of technologies in photography, video, and taxidermy in order to confront the viewer with images that reside on the uncanny line between the living and the automaton. The images are rooted in perceptual experience, and are mediated by the techniques of special effects. These effects are not reality simulations or surreal aberrations; rather they are visual mechanisms that expose political and ontological undercurrents of contemporary culture. His artwork has been exhibited internationally, including at the Hong Kong Exhibitions Centre and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, among others.

Understanding art-making as a communicative exercise, Brian Andrews also records on contemporary art as the west coast bureau chief for Bad at Sports Contemporary Art Talk. His writings can be found in Artnet, Art Practical, Beautiful / Decay Magazine, as well as numerous catalogs. He received a Masters of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002 and a Bachelors of Arts in Visual Arts and Psychology with Highest Honors at the University of California San Diego in 2000. Currently, he is the Director of Animation & Visual Effects and Associate Director of Digital Filmmaking at Expression College for Digital Art in Emeryville, California.
