Meet the writer

Brady Trainor is a storyteller. Born in the midwest, Trainor began working with skate footage before migrating to a more narrative structure of filmmaking. In high school, Brady found an environmental outlet for narrative and PSA-style work. Although a filmmaker by trade, his real talents lie in writing. Trainor’s emphasis on story, irregular structure, and character development set him apart from other screenwriters, and keeps audiences guessing throughout his films.

In Memory of...

IMG_4185.JPG

We never think we’ll lose those closest to us, at least not suddenly. When it happens, it takes us time to accept that this is the reality we live in, that we’ll never get to see those we’ve lost again. Walter Scott Roseboro III was supposed to direct Yucca, but now he’ll never get the chance. 

I first met Walt in film school. Back then Walt had mostly done music videos, and I had mostly done environmental PSAs and skate videos. We were roommates with our friend Jon the second half of college, and we stayed in touch after school was finished. Together, Walt and I had a plethora of ideas just waiting for the right time to be made into reality. Even when I moved to California, and he moved back home to Philadelphia, Walt and I remained close, so much so that he was the best man at my wedding. 

My best friend was murdered by a lunatic on November 7th, 2018. He was six days away from his flight out to California to go over pre-production with me. Even days before his death we were in contact, making last minute plans for when he came out to the west coast. 

I miss my friend, and wish every day I could have done something else to stop what happened. I wish I could talk to him one more time, but it’s out of the question. All I can really do now is dedicate Yucca to him, the movie he didn’t get to make, and hope that he’s found peace.

See you on the other side, friend.

vapor elements

While looking into vaporwave, I decided to dip my toe into editing around the genre. Take a look at some of the elements I used to create the newest video in the Little Bits slow motion series below!

With the script now final, it seems like every day something else is getting done. Scene breakdowns, shoot days, prop lists, and more are already completed. We're moving much faster now!
