Biography



Bryan Wizemann's short film work includes Button Soup (Johnson Museum, Cinema Village NY), The Morning Sun (Rooftop Films, IFC), the television show Cooklyn, and Film Makes Us Happy, which documents the last fight he will ever have with his wife about making films (Hamptons, IFF Boston, Rooftop Films, DocPoint, Wholphin).

Losing Ground (Cinequest, CineVegas, Santa Fe) was adapted from his critically acclaimed New York stage play and features the original cast. It was called “fascinating filmmaking that gets to the core of humanity” by Film Threat and is available from Netflix.

About Sunny won the Grand Jury Prize at IFF Botson, and stars Lauren Ambrose, Audrey Scott, Dylan Baker, and Penelope Ann Miller. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival where Rex Reed called it a “wrenching but admirably unsentimental film about the bravery of the human condition.” Lauren was nominated for a Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead, and the film is released by Oscilloscope. Humor Me, a romantic comedy written with Andrew Semans, was optioned out of the IFP Independent Film Week and is currently in development. Bryan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
