Wiki Biography: To date Brad Carr has worked on over 170 film, video, television and theater productions in a large range of positions. Son to a retired Air Force Colonel, much of Brad's free time was spent watching second-run movies like "Tank" and "Dune". Brad acquired his first exposure to a movie set when his mother took him to see "Robocop" filming in Dallas, Texas, his home town. When he was nine, Brad moved to Lake Forest, Illinois with his mother and stepfather, a former Mayor of Ottawa, Canada. During his freshman year at Lake Forest High School Brad uncovered a hidden desire and talent for fictional writing. At the same time he became extremely active in the high school's vast theater program working in stagecraft and acting. Sophomore year he began telecommunications and drama classes. Once again Brad discovered another hidden talent of producing and directing short videos and began sweeping the in-class "Telecom" awards. He pursued theater and video throughout the rest of high school and after graduating in 1998 he took a summer film program at Columbia College in Chicago. At the age of 18, he moved again to Hillsborough, California and attended the College of San Mateo, getting an associates degree in directing (6 credits outstanding), and the Academy of Art University receiving special recognition for contribution to the University for running the Universal Film Club and getting a BFA in directing motion picture. During his time at the Academy, Brad worked full time as a camera operator on wedding videos and for an audio visual hotel event company, Swank Audio Visuals. The regional manager of Swank A/V later commissioned him to make a corporate video. Brad also performed with San Francisco Taiko Dojo (Japanese drums) and was an odaiko (big drum) soloist at the International Taiko Festival at Zellarbach Hall in Berkeley. Brad was often approached by peer filmmakers to play lead roles in their films, and urged by teachers to seriously consider acting but refused in order to stay focused on writing and directing his own projects such as "Nighthawk". In 2004 Brad interned for San Francisco City Hall and regularly attended Film Commission meetings and persistently sought work as a Production Assistant and was hired as a staff office PA on "Rent", a set PA on "Pursuit of Happyness" and Art PA on "Zodiac".
