Selected to the 2018 New Director’s Showcase
DETROIT TO LOS ANGELES
Brett Warkentien grew up in the hard-working Midwest. Where sports and art dominated his youth. So much so, that it gave him a unique set of sensibilities for his craft. After studying film and design, he made a career as an agency creative. From there his passion led him to pursue directing. Now in Los Angeles, his eye for detail and composition has led him to direct nuanced performances and deliver meaningful messages. As a director, his range demonstrates an ability to adapt and creatively problem-solve for any concept - from comedy to action to emotional PSA’s. He looks forward to working with clients who are bold and willing to push the boundaries of storytelling.
