When Frank “The Flame” Barnhill lifted Jeremy Brunson over his head, he didn’t know what to think. Moments later, he came crashing back down to earth, bouncing off the mat of the wrestling ring. A body slam probably isn’t the most conventional way someone gets into filmmaking, but Jeremy met his match. He found early success chronicling the (possibly tall) tales of Alabama independent pro wrestlers. He soon found himself heading up to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he obtained a BFA in Filmmaking with a concentration in editing and sound.
One summer, he interned at Alabama Public Television working as an assistant editor on the award-winning film, THE QUILTMAKERS OF GEE’S BEND, directed by Celia Carey.
After graduating from UNCSA, Jeremy was tapped to work at a post house in Birmingham and assisted on Celia Carey’s next award-winning film, MR. DIAL HAS SOMETHING TO SAY, chronicling self-taught artist Thorton Dial’s struggle with racism in the art world. While in Birmingham, Jeremy worked on major campaigns for the US Postal Inspection Service and other regional brands. He then became the lead editor for Time Inc. Digital Lifestyle Division, editing hundreds of food and lifestyle videos across Time Inc.’s many brands.
Jeremy’s passion for storytelling eventually led him out to Los Angeles. He enjoys editing projects of all types, from 15-second commercials to feature films. Some of his recent work includes a series of videos for Lowe’s Hypermade campaign, the Christmas movie 12 DAYS OF GIVING, and the uncommon WWII love story ISABEL AND JUNE.
