Hi! I'm Bri Castellini. I'm a 26 year old writer and independent filmmaker based in New York City. I don't know if anyone's ever talked about this publically, but New York City is kind of expensive.

Previous projects:

I am the creator, writer, and star, among other things, of the award-winning comedic zombie web series Brains. We have now made two wonderful seasons, and I could not be prouder.


Next, I wrote, directed, and produced a short film called Ace and Anxious, about asexuality, anxiety, and questionable Craigslist ads. The script won “Best Short Screenplay” at the New York Short Film and Screenplay Competition in 2016 and the London Indie Fest in 2017. The film itself won “Best Comedy” at the Women’s Only Entertainment Film Festival and "Best No Budget Short Film" at the Wales International Film Festival in 2017.



In late 2017 I also released my latest web series, Sam and Pat Are Depressed, a series of darkly comedic vignettes about two depressed roommates who navigate the inherent awkwardness of therapy through profanity and takeout.



Most recently, I wrapped production on my first dramatic project, a short psychological horror film called "Buy In," about pyramid schemes. I co-wrote it with Colin Hinckley, star of the film as well as an actor from both Brains and Ace and Anxious, and directed the film.



I made all four of of these projects with many of the same people, my trusted group of talented and passionate friends, and I look forward to making many more things in the future.

This is where you come in.

With your contribution, you can help fuel our creative process so that we can make more things, and make those things better and better as we go. Together, we can make new web series, new seasons of established web series, short films, documentaries, review series, and more. The bottom line is that I have a ton of ideas and the experience and passion to make them happen. I just need a little help on the resource front.

Brains may have only ever gotten 2 produced seasons, but 6 seasons were written! At this tier, every month you'll get a new episode script, starting with Season 3, episode 1. If we get 15 patrons at this level or higher, we'll also release a table read of an episode or two every quarter!

This takes care of my monthly student loan payment, meaning I can spend a bit more money per shoot, either to hire more crew or buy better props and costumes.
