Filmmaker Todd Brunelle, in addition to his many film productions, is Creative Director for a new museum: The CELL, in Denver, Colorado.
"CELL" is an acronym for: The Center for Empowered Living and Learning, a museum dedicated to shedding light on terrorism. The Cell's most innovative feature is a simulated terrorist attack, projected on 30 6x8 foot surround screens. Brunelle's direction took the material from rough edit through special effects into the finished videos, using his extensive experience in After Effects, Photoshop and other design software.
Mr. Brunelle's video for the US Homeland Security Department debuted recently, to great acclaim. Prior to that project, Brunelle designed the "IN OUR TIME" exhibit at The Museum of Tolerance, as well as creating the animation and graphics for five award winning feature films there. Brunelle's projects have won more than 70 awards, including an Emmy for his art direction for the FOX TV series "Front Page".
Before starting the next project at the Museum of Tolerance, Todd Brunelle is advising fellow UCLA grad Diane Heller on her current documentary feature film : "Edward M. Bannister: An American Artist".
