Carl D Brown

Executive Creative Director

Tormented with an over-active mind, Carl is constantly brimming with ideas, strategies and creative concepts. While some would see this as a burden, Carl taps into this neurological firestorm to help clients engage audiences and tell their story. As an Oakland-based documentary filmmaker, video producer and creative director Carl works with clients from Left to Right Coast and beyond. As a director and producer Carl started Corduroy Media in 2003 to serve his clients with creative storytelling, filmmaking and still photography needs. His interest in digital storytelling, cinematography, and creating compelling narratives, motivates his projects with technology, non-profit, education and corporate clients.

In 2008, Carl released the first feature length Documentary under the Corduroy Media moniker. 2nd Verse: The Rebirth of Poetry , was awarded best documentary at San Francisco Independent Santa Cruz , and London Independent FilmFestivals. 2nd Verse is now distributed on iTunes. In 2008, Carl completed a ten-month project with MTV producing segments for their Emmy Award winning Choose or Lose campaign. Select shows from this work were broadcast on MTV, MTV 2, MTV Tres, MTV U, and VH1.

Always looking for a welcome distraction, Carl is free to discuss any project, whether it is in the early stage of concept creation or ready for execution. Just give him a call or email, he loves to brainstorm new ideas…
