Jeremy Braverman has been teaching the craft of filmmaking to aspiring artists at the university level since 2000. Outside of his first love of teaching, Braverman is an independent filmmaker and works as a freelance director and assistant director.

His short, fiction films – dramatic comedies which examine some of the most painful moments in romantic and familial relationships from a comedic perspective — have played in film festivals around the country and received a number of awards.

His freelance work includes projects as a director on educational and promotional videos for organizations including Bike Pittsburgh, The Geriatric Educational Council of Pennsylvania, The Center for Bioethics and Health Law at the University of Pittsburgh, and as an assistant director on a variety of projects in the Pittsburgh region, including short and feature films.

Prior to relocating to Pittsburgh, he worked in the Chicago independent film industry and as an actor and television personality in Budapest, Hungary. He is originally from Chesterfield, Mo.
