Bryan Hopkins

1st Assistant Director



Bryan Douglas Hopkins was born in Dayton, Ohio and spent much of his formative years in Aurora, a suburb outside of Cleveland. Growing up he was drawn to music and photography.

Bryan’s uncompromising determination has brought to the screen numerous short films that are permeated with powerful performances along with dark and stunningly captured images. His work often draws comparisons to such tortured greats as Darren Aronofsky, Park Chan-wook, and Alejandro González Iñárritu.

Bryan’s latest effort, Qing Lou Nu (The Prostitute), has been screened twice locally prior to its scheduled festival premiere and has earned the “Audiences Choice Award” at the October Mitten Movie Project. The Detroit independent Film Festival (March 3rd -7th, 2010) has nominated Qing Lou Nu in seven categories and will be holding the official premiere.
