Brad Marshland entered Harvard with the intention of studying medicine. Then one semester, the class he took just after “Inorganic Chemistry” each Tuesday was “Visual and Narrative Perspective in Film.” His choice was easy.
After Harvard, he studied film and social anthropology with the International School of America’s International Honors Program under such renowned filmmakers as Miklos Janco, Jean Rouch, Robert Gardner and Shohei Imamura.
For the past twenty years, Brad has been a prolific writer and producer in just about every medium. He has produced numerous documentary and narrative feature films, including the Emmy® Award-winning documentaries The Next Frontier and We’ve Got The Power and the acclaimed fiction/documentary hybrid feature The Other Kids. He has written and directed everything from commercial and PR pieces to web content, museum installations and feature films, including Liars’ Dice, starring Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris. He has written and sold screenplays in Hollywood, had stage plays produced on both coasts, and works as a story consultant to award-winning filmmakers. Between film projects, Brad has authored the fantasy novels The Imagicators and its sequel, The Imagicators and the Wind Between the Worlds, and produced over 200 feature segments for Yahoo News, Yahoo Tech, and Yahoo Finance, garnering well over 100 million views.
