Bradley Berman received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University and a Master of Fine Arts in Film and Television from New York University. For the past two decades, his work focused on writing and producing non-fiction content about transportation, cars and urban design. Berman’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, MIT Technology Review, Popular Mechanics, and U.S. News & World Report.
In 2017, he made his directorial debut with NAT BATES FOR MAYOR, a feature documentary that screened at film festivals across the U.S. and aired on public television’s “Truly CA” series.
Chris Metzler graduated from USC with a degree in business and cinema. His offbeat environmental documentary, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA was narrated by the legendary John Waters. The film won more than 37 awards for Best Documentary and was named by Booklist as one of its Top 10 Environmental Films. A cult favorite, the film was released theatrically in the United States and broadcast nationally on the Sundance Channel and public television’s America ReFramed.
With the success of that film, he went on to pursue other sub-cultural documentary subjects, including: rogue economists, lucha libre wrestlers, ganja-preneurs, and evangelical Christian surfers. His most recent feature is the ITVS co-production RODENTS OF UNUSUAL SIZE about the giant swamp rat invasion of Louisiana which was released theatrically and aired nationally on PBS’ Independent Lens.
Costello’s portfolio of work has been seen on The Learning Channel, PBS, Sundance Channel and innumerable film festivals including Tribeca and Mountainfilm in Telluride. He was the editor of RODENTS OF AN UNUSUAL SIZE, which received numerous awards and aired on PBS TV series Independent Lens. Costello annually edits the Emmy award winning Public Television series THE NEW ENVIRONMENTALISTS, narrated by Robert Redford. He has also edited the four-hour documentary series STANDING ON SACRED GROUND about sacred places, indigenous cultures and environmental justice.
