Brent McCorkle at Sundance Film Festival

Brent McCorkle has loved movies for as long as he can remember. 


As kids, he and his brother stopped counting after they had watched 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' forty times each. 

Brent's films are known for their heartfelt and visually-compelling storytelling ... including an award-winning film that caught the eye of Steven Spielberg, landing him a first-look deal with DreamWorks and Fox Television.
