Brian Tweedy

Brian Tweedy started his career in New York at the ripe young age of 10 playing a disco dancing Santa Clause in his grade school Christmas Concert. He found a love of the theatre working on musical comedies throughout high school. For his senior year, Brian attended the Long Island High School for the Arts to study Drama. There he landed his first lead role in a feature film, The Bloody, the Bogus, and the Totally Rad, a selection at the Long Island Film Festival ‘07. His experiences guided him to Emerson College where he majored in theatre studies, focusing on acting, writing and directing. While at Emerson, Brian worked on over 30 film projects ranging in length and scope.

Brian currently resides in Burbank, California and is focusing on furthering his film career both in front of and behind the camera.
