Directors & Producers

Director

Brian Sullivan

Brian is a timelapse enthusiast, cinematographer & post production specialist. Despite his love for all things technical, he loves being right in the middle of the action. His work has been featured in the Philadelphia Flower Show, among other places. In his free time, he loves the outdoors– He has completed two cross-country trips across the United States, with two more trips planned for 2017.

Brian’s work in the Fire Service started in 2012 when members of the Roslyn Fire Company in Abington, PA took him under their wing as a photographer to cover incidents and showcase Montgomery County’s finest.

His incident coverage expanded to neighboring counties and municipalities, and in early 2015, he released a 9-minute short film about “what it’s like to be a firefighter”.

In that time, he learned one thing: Firefighting isn’t always about the fire. It’s as much about the brotherhood and the culture behind the fire station doors, as it is training for “the next big one”. Encompassing an entire way of life in 9 minutes is an incredibly different film altogether, and simply cannot tell the ins-and-outs of the fire service in such a small timeframe.

Producer

Harrison Kendall

Harrison Kendall has been creating since day one. It might be the infamous fitted hat that he wears regularly, but no one really knows. Consider the hat one-third of his creative passion, and the other two-thirds are his drive to consistently find different ways of making things happen.

This is attributed to being a gritty native of Philadelphia where the sun doesn’t always shine, and the sports teams cause more headaches than high fives. Coming from the unfavorable city allows him to dream big, and tirelessly strive to bring change to the world through compelling visuals and telling people’s stories.

Production Sound

Andre Burton

Andre loves movies and film, like most everyone else on this page. He is sarcastic (in case you couldn’t tell) and is doing the production design, along with production sound, for Brian’s film. He also is an exceptional boom op, mostly due to his extreme arm strength (from rock climbing).

Gaffer

Tim Watson

Tim has always enjoyed watching movies and TV and began working to create his own in high school. He also loves to see what the world has to offer and has been to Central and South America. Tim has lived out in Los Angeles, working on Hollywood sets, and is now back in Philadelphia, trying to create a name for himself by building lasting relationships with everyone he meets.

Production Sound & Post Sound

Sergio Galeano

Sergio Galeano has had his hands in the Film and Television industry since he was licensed to drive. Raised in Palm Beach, Florida, he brought his broadcast production experience to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2014. From camera operation for local wrestling broadcasts to live show technical directing for concerts and ceremonies, Sergio came up north to focus on his passion for all things production audio. With his background in non-fictional broadcast journalism, and a documentarian himself, he joined the BTBD team to work on a real story once more.

Blessing Omaiye is one of the newest members at Behind the Bay Doors. Originally from North Kingstown, Rhode Island, Blessing has always been interested in film making. However, she did not start creating short films until high school. What she lacks in experience she makes up for with hard work, a can-do attitude, and a multitude of puns. With her musical background, she hopes to work on production sound.
