Brian Russell grew up loving super-hero comic books, TV and movies. Star Trek, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Planet of the Apes were his favorites as a kid. He still loves all that cool sci-fi stuff, but now spends about half his screen time with Classic Films. Film Noir is his favorite genre in that realm. He is a Director of Photography with credits ranging from an ESPN 30 for 30, to celebrities like Arianna Huffington, Ed Burns and the entire cast of Saturday Night Live. He also writes for the film blog Sam and Chris and Friends on Film.  Check him out at
