About Brian

BRIAN FORD is a cross-platform visual media specialist based in Austin, TX, the Bay Area, and Points South and East. His work has focused on a spectrum of humanitarian and social change issues--from the post-industrial struggles of Detroit to the post-conflict transformations of rural Colombia, from the rebuilding efforts in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake to the reshaping of American Indian rights in Oklahoma. Brians corporate, governmental and nongovernmental clients have included National Geographic, PBS, A&E, Discovery Channel, the Smithsonian Channel, Dell, the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, UNICEF, and the University of Michigan. As DP, director, and field producer with extensive post experience, Brian is technically conversant from the field to final finishing.
