  Director of Photography

Harlan began a career in Seattle working as an assistant to various commercial photographers while establishing his own studio.  He held shows at local galleries including the prestigious Benham Studios in Seattle.  He soon combined his love for English with his passion for photography and began to write and shoot his own narrative films.

With Cinematography as his new passion, Harlan was accepted to the New York University graduate film program.  Over the next 4 years, Harlan shot over twenty short films, and he graduated determined to pursue storytelling in the narrative film realm.  He was soon hired on low-budget features and commercials.

His High-Def work got him noticed by director Nicole Holefcener, who brought him onto her film Lovely and Amazing.  The film was released in 2001 and it's cinematography was highly praised.  Harlan switched between high-def and 35mm for various theatrical releases, including Saving Face and Winter Solstice, both released in 2005.  Harlan returned to television with another Comedy Central series called Stella.  Harlan has shot films in the Dominican Republic and India as well as all over the US and has cultivated projects that involve international casts and crew.  He now has over 30 feature films to his credit.  His most recent films include Starting out in the Evening starring Frank Langella, and a Plum Pictures release titled, Life in Flight.  In 2007 Harlan shot See You In September, a romantic comedy in NYC with Director/Actress Tamara Tunney.

Brad Carr

  Grip

To date Brad Carr has worked on 148 film, video, television and theater productions in a large range of positions.  Son to a retired Air Force Colonel, much of Brad’s free time was spent watching second run movies like “Tank” and “Dune”.  Brad acquired his first exposure to a movie set when his mother took him to see “Robocop” filming in Dallas, TX, his home town.

When he was nine, Brad moved to Lake Forest, IL with his mother and stepfather, a former Mayor of Ottawa Canada.  During his freshman year at Lake Forest High School Brad uncovered a hidden desire and talent for fictional writing. Also at the same time Brad became extremely active in the high school’s vast theater program working in stagecraft and acting.  Sophomore year he began telecommunications and drama classes.  Once again Brad discovered another hidden talent of producing and directing short videos and began sweeping the in-class “Telecom” awards. He pursued theater and video throughout the rest of high school and after graduating in 1998 he took a summer film program at Columbia College in Chicago.

At the age of 18, he moved again to Hillsborough, CA and attended the College of San Mateo, getting an associates degree in directing (6 credits outstanding), and the Academy of Art University receiving special recognition for contribution to the University for running the Universal Film Club and getting a BFA in directing motion picture.   During his time at the Academy, Brad worked full time as a camera operator on wedding videos and for an audio visual hotel event company, Swank Audio Visuals.  The regional manager of Swank A/V later commissioned Brad to make a corporate video.  Brad also performed with San Francisco Taiko Dojo (Japanese drums) and was an odaiko (big drum) soloist at the International Taiko Festival at Zellarbach Hall in Berkeley.  Brad was often approached by peer filmmakers to play lead roles in their films, and urged by teachers to seriously consider acting but Brad refused in order to stay focused on writing and directing his own projects such as “Nighthawk”.  In 2004 Brad interned for San Francisco City Hall and regularly attended Film Commission meetings and persistently sought work as a Production Assistant and was hired as a staff office PA on “RENT”, a set PA on “Pursuit of Happyness” and Art PA on “Zodiac”. Using his experience as an audio visual technician he also did a fair amount of permit work for IATSE Local 16.

In 2006 Brad moved to Los Angeles.  Still set on writing and directing, Brad worked as grip, pa and extra while developing his own projects and regularly attended acting classes.  Brad worked as a dolly grip on four television movies, giving Brad a rare opportunity to study acting and directing up close on the set.  At the end of 2007 Brad joined SAG and although he still writes and eagerly works on set as grip, electric, pa, extra, art etc. he has exerted his full energy into the craft of acting.

Tell us about working on John's Hand.
Tell us about your recent film work.
Patrick Francis

Patrick Francis recently completed a feature documentary on the maverick film director, Andre deToth. Andre deToth: The Director's Director probes the connection between deToth's wild life (his escape from Nazi-occupied Poland, the devastating collapse of his marriage to Veronica Lake, his resilience after breaking his neck three times) and his extraordinary cinematic achievements (A-pictures, B-pictures, noirs, westerns, war films, and the 3-D classic, House of Wax). A collaborative effort shot over the last years of deToth's life, the film is an intimate portrayal and highly personal exploration of a man who truly lived life on his own terms. Directors Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Roeg, Richard Donner, and Bertrand Tavernier also pay tribute to this largely underappreciated artist.

For the video-based website, Interviewing Hollywood, Mr. Francis has produced and edited over 30 hours of content, and conducted in-depth, career-focused Q&A's with Crispin Glover, Elliott Gould, Peter Bogdanovich, and many others. He's also written several screenplays for hire (which hopefully will never be produced) as well as film-related journalism for such publications as L.A. Weekly and MovieMaker Magazine, among others.

It should be noted that Mr. Francis is obsessed with the cinema of Werner Herzog, is an L.A. native, and is the proud owner of a barrel of single malt Scotch whiskey, which is aging quietly in the briny sea air of southern Scotland.

Great series!

These first two episodes are like studying the evolution of a cosmic catastrophe with the aid of an excellent telescope; distance lending the illusion of comic relief to the agonizingly familiar hair-triggered hot-buttons of sensitivity, insecurity and inimate isolation. Waiting for more will be tough.

Ouch! Well compelling entertainment isn't always comfortable. The characters are very believable and draw you in to the story. Bravo!

Boy do I want to know more! I feel her pain already...and rather love her anti-stress method...Love the feel, the cinematography and the tension already built in. Well done!

Nice job! I completely bought them as brother and sister. I'm anxious to meet the rest of the family.
