Brandon Mercer is a independent filmmaker from St John's, Newfoundland with a decade of successful experiences working on big budget television shows as well as smaller scale productions across eastern Canada. He has also received commendations from the Atlantic film festival and the Center for Arts & Technology as emerging director of the year. Brandon is currently the director, editor, and content creator for the vlog series "Sin &Tonic", while also producing his own independent short horror films. His work consistently peers into dark corners, finding the light, addressing the themes of justice, transformation and self discovery through "high concept" cinematography, art direction, and distinctive use of color.
A strong believer and contributor to the horror genre, Brandon's goal is to continue to support other local filmmakers and horror fans alike (when he isn't covered in blood...)
Brandon is our very own personal photographer and Promotions Manager!
