Single Malt Filmmaker
BEVAN B. BELL
A man of many talents, crafted and aged in a single oak barrel.
I’m a filmmaker; an Auteur. I’m a Writer/Director. I also happen to know how to shoot and edit really well and I’m lucky enough to make a living doing it. Occasionally I get to ham it up in front of the camera. I haven’t figured out how to make a living out of doing that yet. I’ve been working PROFESSIONALLY (actually getting paid to do this stuff) for 18 years now. I know what you’re thinking, “You don’t look that old.” Well, I kind of am “that old” plus I started working when I was really young. You can dig around the menu for specific skill sets and samples. Feel free to browse some of the RECENT WORKS and REELS below.
