About Me

2017+Headshot+1.jpg

After producing a feature film, working with national brands including Coca-Cola and Regal Cinemas, and screening his films at festivals worldwide (all before the age of 21), Andy Brewster has quickly immersed himself in the world of media since toying with LEGO stop-motion in middle school. With a love for storytellers from Tolkien to Tarkovsky and the power of story and film on the human soul, Andy continues to seek projects that relate human struggles. 

As a director, he has brought several award-winning shorts to life including “A Piacere” (2018), “After Yesterday” (2017), and “Verto” (2018). In freelance, he has produced a variety of content from developing commercial concepts with Coca-Cola and Regal as a semi-finalist in their nationwide film school competition, to promotional pieces for local theatres and businesses. As a producer, he organized the production of the feature film Rubaru by Marco Zambrana that will be released in 2019.

Andy is also a classically-trained violinist and has performed as a soloist in the US, Canada, and Germany and has studied with artists such as the Shanghai String Quartet, Aizuri Quartet, Brian Reagin, Rebekah Binford, Elizabeth Beilman, Lisa Malcolm, and Elizabeth Larson. He held a seat in the Triangle Youth Philharmonic for 5 years, has been a member of 4 different quartets including the WCPE String Quartet with the North Carolina Chamber Music Institute, and performed with the NC Symphony multiple times. In spring of 2019 he was involved as concertmaster with the world premiere of a new orchestral suite by The Brilliance. He is currently pursuing a music minor at Biola University along with his film degree and sits as concertmaster of the Biola Symphony Orchestra.

Andy currently attends Biola University near Los Angeles to major in Cinema and Media Arts (with a concentration in Production), minor in Music (with an emphasis on violin performance), and study great books through the Torrey Honors Institute.
