Brian McGinn

I'm a film director and impassioned lover of goldendoodles from Los Angeles, CA. I direct shorts starring Dave Franco, Chris Mintz-Plasse, Kenny G, Jon Daly, Alison Brie, Olivia Munn and a bunch of other awesome people for Funny or Die. I also direct documentaries. My last one was The Record Breaker, a comedic documentary about Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness Records of all time. Vimeo named it one of their "Top 10 Videos of 2013" and The New York Times called it "one of the best things on Vimeo or anywhere." You can watch it on Vimeo. Previously, I co-directed and edited the Matt Damon-narrated documentary American Teacher, and edited Chris Messina's 2014 feature Alex of Venice, which premiered at this years Tribeca Film Festival. I've also been a contributor to The New Yorker and McSweeney's.
