Director Biography - Brendan Egan

Hello! My name is Brendan Egan and I am a filmmaker from Boston, MA. Before directing, I was an actor in projects such as "Jem and the Holograms", "Castle Rock", and "Donny!" just to name a few. Although I was born with a limb-difference on my left hand, that hasn't stopped me from defining the odds and following my passion. I am very grateful for those who have supported and continued to support my films

Director Statement

I found out about the "ArcLight 24 Hours in Boston Contest" a few weeks before the deadline and was very happy to know that a theater chain was supporting local filmmakers, specifically Boston filmmakers. We ended up writing a script for the project over the course of a day and cast it, shot it, and edited it all in 7 days. We are honored to have such a great opportunity to showcase one of the many works of the Boston film community!
