His goal is to produce the best video while staying within budget and time. His most recent experience is with the Will Ferrell movie - Talladega Nights - The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Director of Photography
Timi Brennan is a high school dropout & chronic underachiever. As a writer/director of several independent short films he has consistently acted as his own DP and is proficient in doing a lot with a little. Though there is always something birthing under his banner, Magnolia Hideout Movies, he's habitually willing to lend a hand to his brothers & sisters of low-budget indie films. Staying behind the camera and below the line,Timi strives for perfection which is evident in his work as well as this mini-bio which he tried very hard to make sound third-personie.

“I love clothing and clothing design. Period. But I’ve always been drawn to the clothing of bygone eras or clothing that sparks imagination... I love the way you draw out or highlight an aspect of your own personality, interest or dreams by simply donning certain clothing.”

Patrick Hussion was raised in the shadows of Stone Mountain, east of Atlanta, GA, playing sports and collecting baseball cards.....pretty typical stuff. As a teenager, he began producing crude short films for his family....mostly composed of editing footage of holidays and family gatherings and setting them to sappy music (if someone in the "audience" cried, he considered it a huge success). Patrick has a passion for, not only studying films and the art of filmmaking, but also the acting methods of Sanford Meisner....the latter being a skill he hopes to carry over into a career on the BIG SCREEN!
