Brendan has loved filmmaking ever since his age-seven epic T-Rex Devours Dad’s Model City. He got his professional start working as both a freelance and media services videographer, and holds a BA in both Philosophy and Theatre Arts as well as an MFA in Acting. Brendan has directed two feature films (Flashback and Bubba the Redneck Werewolf) with another currently in-progress, as well as a plethora of shorts. He founded And You Films as a joint artistic and commercial venture.
Will got his filmmaking start creating stop-motion shorts with his ludicrous amount of Star Wars toys. He went on to get his BA in English, and worked at Stetson University for seven years as a graphic designer, web/communications coordinator, and director of video and photography for University Marketing. Will has written multiple screenplays and novels, and has directed for both stage and screen. He joined with Brendan initially to play the role of villain Lamar Garret in Flashback before ultimately helping incorporate And You.

John has been making goofy comedy films and parodying movies since he was 12. He and Brendan first teamed up on video work together when they met in high school – a partnership that resulted in And You’s first feature film Flashback. John has gone on to manage successful careers as a both voice artist and as a musician (lead singer/songwriter for the steampunk band The Cog Is Dead). With a strong creative passion and keen attention to detail, he has always striven to make every element he has his hands in a work of art.
Andrew started acting in Brendan and John’s video projects in high school, and has continued to do so for nearly two decades, including playing the lead in And You’s first feature film, Flashback. His passion for performing in musical theatre stage productions led him to earn his AA in music. Andrew has been a member of the Daytona-based improv comedy troupe Random Acts of Insanity for more than a decade, ultimately taking over as the group’s manager in 2014. His involvement with And You continues to bring laughs to the masses.
