Brad Marshland, Director / Writer / Producer

Brad Marshland entered Harvard with the intention of studying medicine. Then one semester, the class he took just after “Inorganic Chemistry” each Tuesday was “Visual and Narrative Perspective in Film.” His choice was easy. For the past twenty years, Brad has been a prolific writer and producer in just about every medium. He has produced numerous documentary and narrative feature films, including the Emmy Award-winning documentaries “The Next Frontier” and “We’ve Got The Power.” Between film projects, Brad has produced over 200 feature segments for Yahoo News, ABC, and Katie Couric. He has written and sold screenplays in Hollywood, had stage plays produced on both coasts, and works as a story consultant to award-winning filmmakers.
