With backgrounds in both illustration and production, the Brewer directing duo (known to their parents as brothers Ben and Alex) are comprehensive and visionary artists, able to take on pre-visualization, art direction, editing and special effects all themselves. Ben’s debut feature film Beneath Contempt, made for less than $15,000, premiered at the 2011 Slamdance Film Festival and was praised in Variety for its “strong performances” and “unpredictable and elliptical” storytelling. The film continued its run at the Independent Film Festival of Boston, Brooklyn Film Festival, Cincinnati Film Festival and the White Sands International Film Festival.

Recipients of the Shots 2013 Best New Director Award, Brewer joined PRETTYBIRD’s roster in 2012, and since then, have successfully segued to music videos, applying their fresh and artful eye to Drop The Lime “No Sleep,” Purity Ring “Belispeak,” Steve Aoki featuring Lovefoxxx “Heartbreaker,” Skylar Grey “Final Warning,” The War on Drugs “Brothers,” Two Door Cinema Club “Changing of the Seasons” and Volta Bureau “Hope,” among others. Their Alt-J “Something Good” video took home the 2013 Young Director Award for Non-European Music Video and was featured in the SHOOT New Directors Showcase, alongside their video for Passion Pit’s “Carried Away,” which also received a slew of Best Music Video and Best New Director accolades from the London International Awards, UK Music Video Awards and Shots Awards, to name a few.

Brewer’s first feature-film The Trust premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival and stars Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood as corrupt cops who discover a strangely hidden and guarded safe filled with mysterious contents.
