BRANDY MACHADO

PRODUCER / EDITOR / WRITER / DIRECTOR / CINEMATOGRAPHER

I am a freelance filmmaker and writer based in Portland, OR. After being 100% set on studying film at UCLA after high school, I ended up getting a Women & Gender Studies degree from Harvard instead. Post-college I realized that I still wanted to pursue film and signed up for the Northwest Film Center’s Certificate Program in 2015. I completed the program in November 2019. I've helped produce projects for Facebook, Google, and more. I have experience with freelance film work in real estate, education, and promotional materials. I have also developed my own projects in narrative, documentary, and experimental genres. I am dedicated to telling the stories of women, queer folks, and POC and making sure they have representation behind the camera as well. In addition to film work, I am also currently writing a family memoir called If I Get a Chance that explores the effects of intergenerational trauma and mental illness.
