About James (Brandy) Spear:

My career includes 15+ films as camera assistant including Paris Trout with Academy Award winner Robert Elswit (Cinematography2007 for There Will Be Blood), and Ken Burns The Roosevelt’s (airing 2013). Over the last few years in addition to my AC work I’ve been fortunate to serve as the DP/Operator on a variety of quality projects with Bright Blue Sky Productions in Macon. Highlights include a feature Documentary on The Allman Brothers time in Macon for the Big House Museum called Please Call Home: The Big House Years, and Song and Soul of the South, for the Macon Convention and Visitors Bureau, and 30+ short bio films for the Georgia Women of Achievement Organization.
