Brendon Marotta first became interested in filmmaking at age fourteen, after watching a film critic break down the original Star Wars trilogy shot by shot. In high school, he began working as a P.A. on low-budget horror films and directed and edited over thirty short video projects. Brendon graduated from the University of the North Carolina School of the Arts in 2010 with a B.F.A. in film editing & sound, where he worked in every major role on a film set. In 2013, he completed a year long Meisner Acting program at the Waterfront Playhouse & Conservatory. In 2014, a feature he edited was selected to premiere at the Austin Film Festival and won the Narrative Feature Audience Award there. In 2017, he completed his first feature-length documentary as director, which won Best Documentary at the Lone Star Film festival. Brendon currently lives in Austin, TX.
