About Brian

Brian Elliott is the owner and lead cinematographer of Focused Story Films. He’s been passionate about storytelling as long as he can remember, and passionate about videography since he first held a video camera in 2005. 

Brian grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest just East of the Seattle Area. He developed a love of nature and beauty that coincided with his discovery of video. By the time he moved from Seattle to St. Louis he’d produced dozens of short films and commercial projects.

After moving to St. Louis he attended Southwestern Illinois College where he finished top of his class and according to the department head produced, “the best films to ever come out of the program”. It was during film school he discovered his love of commercial and wedding film making.
