Tonight, on the Digital Production BuZZ, Mike Horton and I interviewed Brandon Miller, producer and filmmaker of a soon-to-be-released film titled “Homeless in Los Angeles.”
In many ways, Brandon is like the other young independent filmmakers we talk with on the program. Passionate, talented, and committed. However, in this case, Brandon is something they are not – he is homeless, too.
“Homeless in Los Angeles” is an autobiographical documentary on what it’s like to be homeless in today’s world. Covering Brandon and several other homeless individuals, the film is a look at a part of society many of us would rather ignore – veterans coming back from the war with mental problems, dispossessed families who ran out of money before they ran out of mortgage, and children living with their parents on the street.
What struck me about Brandon, though, was his courage. By day he works as an editor and special effects artist to earn the money to complete his film. He lost his place to live last December. Yet, he kept working on his film. Whenever he was paid for a free-lance gig, he poured it into his film. And wait till you hear him explain why.
Both Mike and I were captivated listening to Brandon speak. I think you will be, too.
