June 27, 2017 8:29 am

AFDA Johannesburg alumni, Brynach Day grew up in West Wales and did his BA in film at AFDA, where he wrote and directed six short films including The Cabin, which played at The Henri Langlois Film Festival. After graduating, he worked for the BBC on shows such as Torchwood and Dr Who.

In 2011, while studying for his MFA in Directing at UCLA, he was named as a BAFTA Brit to Watch along with Joe Cornish and Gareth Edwards. Last year his thesis film, Role Play, was selected by Slamdance, The Newport Beach Film Festival, and The London Short Film Festival where it was nominated for Best Student Short and Best British Short. Since graduating, he’s taught at UCLA and directed both music and corporate videos for clients such as Universal and David Geffen

His feature screenplay, Low Tide, received development funding from BFI‘s Horizons Network Scheme, and as a result, he’s currently being mentored by Duane Hopkins (Better Things, Bypass). Low Tide, was selected as a Top Ten Finalist by the American Zoetrope Screenplay Contest.
