Brian Keith Ellis

Brian Keith Ellis

Writer / Producer


Brian grew up in the Northern Baja town of San Diego, writing since the age of six, and eventually earning degrees in both writing and geography. As geography is known to lead to a career path as either a teacher or someone who overthrows small foreign governments, he chose to pursue writing. However, as he excelled at cultural and political geography, his fascination with politics and the interactions of disparate cultures is often imbued within the stories he creates.

He co-authored the Find Real Love blog (findreallove.wordpress.com), which garnered nearly 200,000 lifetime views. Eventually, he encountered Harold & Maude, and realized that watching films was no longer enough. He ditched his career as a realtor and karaoke junkie and leapt into the world of film and television.

Brian has been involved in successful, low-budget independent features such as The
Invoking, which was a huge financial success and has spawned two sequels. He has two films slated for release in 2017 titled Valley of the Sasquatch and Ayla. He currently has four additional shows in early development, as both a writer and a producer, including the paranormal drama Souljackers. Recently, he worked as associate producer on the dramatic thriller Flower in the Dirt, which is currently beginning its film festival run.
