Brett Hart

Ain't It Cool Productions
Emmy Award-winning writer/director Brett A. Hart started his journey making films as early as 11 years old. By high school, he had already found his mentor in director Richard Franklin, Psycho II/Cloak & Dagger, and was quickly taken under his wing and taught the mechanics of feature filmmaking. Winner of multiple awards, Brett has had the honor of working on many high-profile projects and considers the opportunity of directing film icon James Garner in a series of commercials in 2006 a career highlight. In 2007, Brett earned his first Emmy after catching the attention of Jeff Kreiner, Senior VP of Marketing for CBS News & John Stewart's, The Daily Show, in which one of his unconventional Tornado promos was showcased. Shortly after, Brett made the leap from commercial film directing with his feature film debut, Bone Dry. The desert thriller stars Luke Goss, Lance Henriksen, Tiny Lister and Dee Wallace and was photographed in Death Valley during the height of record-breaking temperatures that summer. Brett considers his creative alliance with Harry serendipitous and feels the collaboration on all of the 30 episodes of the first season of, Ain't It Cool with Harry Knowles, one of the most enjoyable times in his career.
