We had the good fortune of connecting with Brian Koo and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brian, why did you pursue a creative career?
I pursued an artistic/ creative career path because I have many ideas that I would like to share with the world. I feel like many people out there have there hopes and dreams that they wish to express to everyone but, don’t have the oppurtunity too. I help out anybody that wants to do anything creative or artistic. My vision is to help others express who they truly are behind there creativeness and artistic abilities. Everyone deserves a chance in the spotlight. I never would have thought that my skillset and experience will get me to where I am today. I am constantly learning and growing. I want others to follow in my footsteps so we can all leave our mark on this planet.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets me apart from others is that I feel like my personality itself is a character. I had a show written about myself and my roommate at the time. It’s a great story and the characters are original and played by ourselves. That show made it onto Roku TV and Amazon Fire TV. Go check out “The Tim And Brian Show” I am most excited about our project we’ve been working on for the past two years, it’s been a journey. I can’t wait to unveil our latest project to the whole world. We plan on show casing it at various film festivals. To name a few: Telluride Horror Show, New York City Horror Film Festival and Atlanta Film Festival. Be sure to keep an eye out for “Milkman” The steps I took to get to where I am in my professional career was not always easy. I started off with no connections at all. I was then accepted to an apprenticeship with a director in the town I was living in. He’s an Emmy Award winning director so I was very excited. I learned some critical skills from him as well as the core concepts of the film industry. I then moved to Denver, Colorado where I attended Film School “Colorado Media School.” I was there for a short time because I was then recruited to be a part of an indie film set with a budget. I was ecstatic, I was able to work with Clifton Powell (Pinky from Friday). The movie I worked on is called “Diamond In The Rough” and it is available now on Amazon Prime and Vudu. After that I worked on filming a couple of TV shows and rap shows. But then I was recruited to act in a short film called “Milkman” and eventually became the head producer for the movie. I learned alot from that set and we are still completing the project. Its been a long two years but, the journey is just beginning. I worked on other film projects as well which most of my projects have won laurels from multiple film festivals. I am also very proud of one of my latest projects which is a TV Show called “The Tim And Brian Show” Streaming now on Roku TV and Amazon Fire TV. Please go check it out! The lessons I’ve learned so far is very critical. I was taught to take everything in, learn everything and every position. The more you know the more essential you are to a film crew. Always be prepared for anything. The situations that happen on a film set have to be dealt with in a specific way. Just be prepared for anything. One of the biggest problems in the film industry is the film crew itself. Make sure your crew is taken care of so none of the unnecessary drama never comes out causing huge delays to film scedules. I want the world to know that I strive to become the greatest and will always work hard towards my goal. I was born a legend, I plan on always living my life to the fullest and to make sure my children can carry on my name and continue to give the world the best that the entertainment industry can provide. Remember You Can Sleep When You Die. Never let anybody stop you from doing what you love.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First off I would show them around the town and let them get the feel of the environment. Then I would take them to all of the wonderful dispensaries that are open and to show them what the world is like with legal Marijuana. Once we are cruising the skies we will take our bellies to many of the wonderful spots to eat and take in the sites. My favorite spot so far is the Fat Shack. Pretty much everything there is fried so that explains everything itself. Then we would go out for drinks at Bar Louie which they have a great selection of craft beers there. Also amazing burgers in case we get hungry again. Then we would hit up the Rocky Mountains because they are so beautiful in Colorado and show the beautiful side of the state.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A huge shout out to my friends and family who have supported me since Day 1, especially the love of my life Kayla Angelea Sudduth who has always been there for me and was always pushing me to move forward. They have always believed in me and told me to keep going and never give up. I would also like to give a major shout out to my first mentor Alin Bijan. He is an Emmy award winning director and has taught me alot of my skills and I got a better perspective on the industry as a whole. I always live by one rule and that is You can sleep when you die. I always live my life like its my last, so I try to make everyday legendary. When I depart from this planet, I will have left my mark for the history books.
