Director Biography - Brendan Cochrane

Brendan Cochrane is a member of both the WGA and Dramatist’s Guild. He began his film career working as a production assistant for Robert De Niro’s A Bronx Tale and from there went on to work on various film and television projects including Last Action Hero, Die Hard 3, Clockers, The Cowboy Way, Bullets over Broadway, and New York Undercover. In 2007, Brendan formed his first production company, New York Los Angeles High Definition (NYLAHD), producing content for major record label artists, as well as commercial brands such as Maybelline, Nike, Hertz, Michelin, Nivea, Nokia, NFL, Nike and many more. As his production company was thriving, so was his career as a director and writer. He was hired by CSI Miami star Adam Rodriquez to write his first feature film, Renegade Crew. The film was based on the book by Antonio Bustillo about the largest cocaine “rip off” committed by Miami Dade Police in the 1980’s. In 2009, producers hired Brendan to direct the feature film Undergrad. While continuing to direct several commercials/music videos, Cochrane created and wrote his first TV series, The Grind, in 2013 and started shooting (late 2014) in NY/NJ. Shortly after Brendan directed and wrapped production of the pilot in 2015, he launched his new production company, Digital Seven, which focuses exclusively on Film and TV content. The Grind premiered at the 2016 SeriesFest TV festival in Colorado this June and ITV Fest in Vermont in October. Production on the The Grind is slated to begin in January 2017. Brendan is represented by attorney Eddie Hayes and is developing original TV and Film content.
