Brian C. Brown, a December 2015 MFA in Recording Arts and Technologies graduate from MTSU, completed his first major short film, Aurelius, earlier this year.
The film has since been an official selection for the New York City International Film Festival, the Accolade Global Film Competition, the Los Angeles Cinefest and the Miami Independent Film Festival.
Aurelius has Murfreesboro written all over it, as the main character, Marcus a.k.a. Aurelius, deals with balancing classwork, his own music, his job at Davis Market, the decision to smoke up or finish his term paper, a showcase performance at Tempt, and how to simultaneously navigate serious emotional and family issues; in this case, the death of the young man’s father.
Brown’s other main work recently involves live sound reinforcement and studio engineering, and he has also completed mixing and mastering his first major album project for an established Nashville blues artist.
He continues to pursue his career as a filmmaker, scriptwriter, audio engineer and music artist.
