About Brian:

Brian McCollister has been pushing pixels for over 15 years. From the very first time he came in contact with an input device, a lifelong bond was formed.

His love for video production started back in high school, and continued into his time as a renegade college student at Mississippi College where he used his digital media skills to entertain and inspire the campus community. After graduating in 2004 with a degree in Communications Media, he went “legit” when the university began employing him to create and produce recruitment and promotional media pieces.

In 2005, he turned his attention to the non-profit sector and joined the staff of Healing Place Church, serving on the creative team, producing the video side of the church's first live album recording. During his time at Healing Place, he was intimately involved with designing event and product promos, and editing the church's television broadcast.

Craving more education, Brian headed East to work at the Orlando, FL branch of Future Media Concepts, the nation's premier digital media training organization, where he gained invaluable software experience from Apple and Adobe certified trainers. He also assisted the branch manager in day-to-day operations of the office. While he was with the company, he had the privilege of participating in the Post Production World Conference, organized by FMC Training at the National Association Broadcasters show, held yearly in Las Vegas.

In 2007, Brian headed back home to Louisiana and worked with the Baton Rouge production offices of the Asheville-based Bclip Productions. He contributed to the company's strength by raising the standard of motion graphics in their corporate video productions, and designed a total revamp of the Burns & Co. Realty Show, one of the areas top real estate telecasts.

After getting hitched to a pretty girl in 2008, his educational journey brought him to Hollywood, where he enrolled in the Graphics and Animation program at Video Symphony in Burbank, CA. Also dubbed “The Hollywood Institute,” the school serves as a premier training center for the local film, new media and audio production industries. During the course of the program, Brian worked with cutting edge new technologies and software, sitting under the tutelage of instructors who were masters in their craft, including Larry Jordan, named “Mr. Final Cut Pro” by industry insiders.

While in California, he had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, from webisodes like Global Operation to DVD menu design for Redemption, and opening title sequences. In 2010, an exodus of movie production began as large budget films left California for Louisiana. And so did Brian. 

Upon returning home to Baton Rouge (the other LA), Brian started BKMotion Designs and begun working inside the Celtic Media Centre (one of the largest production complexes in Louisiana), creating VFX for LionsGate movies like Blood Out (starring Luke Goss and Val Kilmer), The Courier, and Escapee at Films in Motion. He also redesigned the advertising campaign of Royal Nissan and Royal Suzuki, local car dealerships. His innovation in using actual vehicle render images from the manufacture in place of actual footage contributed to a new design trend in the local market. 

Now Brian's road has come full circle, bringing with it a wealth of training spanning 5 states, over 10 years of editing in Final Cut Pro, industry certifications and an abundance of experience passed on from the numerous professionals and friends that have poured into his life through the years. 

He currently seeks to do his part in keeping digital media work in Louisiana, and is working to form professional alliances with other media production professionals in the local community in an effort to build a hive of creativity in the State.
