BriTANicK screamed into existence in early 2008 when Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher decided that they didn’t want to use the knowledge and experience they garnered in college for anything but creating short stupid videos that would make them laugh.
Brian and Nick first met in Atlanta, GA at the Atlanta Workshop Players Performing Arts Camp. In 2004 they shipped off to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. They worked together sporadically until finally deciding to unite themselves under the BriTANicK flag. Here’s how it works, Brian and Nick write, direct, edit, and act in all of the videos. If ever they are in need of assistance, as is often the case, they call upon their army of friends to come to the rescue.
Brian McElhaney grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. He loves Chick-Fil-A. He majored in film at NYU. He co-wrote, directed, and edited his senior thesis film “Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses”, which was an official selection at both Slamdance and SXSW Film Festival in 2010. He is one half of the voice of Cartoon Network. There’s a Easter Egg of his name hidden in an episode of “One Life To Live”. He stars opposite Nick Kocher, Minka Kelly, Jason Dohring, and Masi Oka in the upcoming “Searching For Sonny”. He recently worked with Charlize Theron in Jason Reitman’s upcoming “Young Adult”. He used to want to be a magician and kind of still does. He loves his sister’s artwork: Art By Amie
