Brendan Nagle is a filmmaker & actor from Upstate New York. He moved to Los Angeles the day after completing final cut of his feature film directorial debut, “The Essentials,” which is now available on four world continents.
As an actor, Brendan was praised as the “uber-hyper and dim-witted enforcer Bobby Bullets [that] steals the scene and every other one in which he appears” (-UnrealTV) for his performance in the digital-sales hit “All American Bikini Car Wash (2015).” His prior role as a trigger-happy gunrunner ‘The Squirrel’ secured his first performance nomination, ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role’ at The Indie Gathering Film Festival & Convention (2013).
Brendan’s dynamic ability on-screen ranges from dancing in one of the most popular music videos of all-time, “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift (2014), to buzzcut jock Billy in “Homecoming” (201), the Lead Fitness Instructor of “FitFighter Training” series (2014), host of his own online content, a brief early career in TV news, and featured moments across platforms, from network-level shows to YouTube influencer content.
Off-camera, Brendan has produced dozens of bicoastal shorts, his award-winning debut feature “The Essentials” (‘Best Directing Award,’ Hollywood & Vine Film Festival, 2012) and digital marketing content for leading social media brands The Elephant Pants (as seen on ‘Shark Tank,’ 2017) and Quest Nutrition. He has traveled the country as an emcee for nationwide dance competitions and is a tour guide at Warner Bros. Studios Hollywood in California.
While developing his next feature, Brendan is seeking representation and management. His training includes ‘Lemmings Improv’ with National Lampoon (Sunset Bronson Studios), a Masters degree in Broadcast & Digital Journalism (Syracuse University) and BFA in Film Production (Rochester Institute of Technology).
