With a mind for visual storytelling, and a background that combines dramatic writing, acting, and photography, Russell is a film director who captures youth, beauty, and innocence through the lens of a cinema camera, and uses this imagery to paint thought provoking and emotional narratives.
Russell has directed several short films including “Trust Me,” “Union Station,” and “Trash Day.” This year Russell completed his first feature length film, “Barmy,” which premiered at the Feel Good Film Festival in Los Angeles, and found distribution with IndieFlix and SnagFilms.
In addition to developing his own projects, Russell works with other writers and filmmakers to develop spec scripts. Russell has worked as a private consultant for Script Pipeline, where he worked with the company’s top writers and managed the business’s professional relationships. Additionally, he has worked in development for Abbot Management, and assisted with development at Benderspink.
