About The Brooklyner

View all by The Brooklyner
The Brooklyner
The Brooklyner is a team of collaborators with diverse experience – writers, editors, actors, filmmakers, artists – inviting creatives to present stories with whatever they’ve got. We call it mediatelling. Imagine a narrative and use a computer, a camera, a smartphone, a microphone, to aptly communicate that story.
