Brendan Kyle Cochrane
Brendan Cochrane is a member of both the WGA and Dramatist’s Guild. He began his film career working as a production assistant for Robert De Niro’s A Bronx Tale and from there went on to work on various film and television projects including Last Action Hero, Die Hard 3, Clockers, the Cowboy Way, Bullets over Broadway, and New York Undercover. In 2007, Brendan formed his first production company, New York Los Angeles High Definition (NYLAHD) producing content for major label music artists, as well as commercial brands such as Maybelline, Nike, Hertz, Michelin, Nivea, Nokia, NFL, Nike and many more. As his production company was thriving, so was his career as a director and writer. He was hired by CSI Miami star Adam Rodriquez to write his first feature film, Renegade Crew. The film was based on the book by Antonio Bustillo about the largest cocaine “rip off” committed by Miami Dade Police in the 1980’s.
In 2009, producers hired Brendan to direct the feature film, Undergrad. While continuing to direct several commercials/music videos, Cochrane created and wrote his first TV series, The Grind, in 2013 and started shooting (late 2014) in NY/NJ. Shortly after Brendan directed and wrapped production of the pilot in 2015, he launched his new production company, Digital Seven, which focuses exclusively on Film and TV content. The Grind will premiere at Sie Film Center in Denver Thursday June 23rd at 10:15pm and Friday June 24th at 2:45 and 6:25pm.
