SUPPORT THE THIRD FILM FROM CHEEVIES

Derek Braasch grew up in South Holland, IL. He gained a love for films at an early age, particularly films containing gore. Late night HBO & Cinemax provided for Derek’s very early film education. At age 10, he picked up his first camcorder (his dad’s VHS Sears brand camera) and began making short films. Derek took his first film class as a Junior in High School, Mass Media, which was the class that inspired him to make films.

His instructor, Bernie Jablonski taught Derek the fundamentals of what goes into making a film. He learned the basics in lighting, shot composition, music and score. He then went on to attend Community College for his Associates Degree, and later attended film school at Columbia College, Chicago. Film school gave him the tools and knowledge to make films, but he gained most of his hands-on knowledge and experience by creating his own films. Derek received his first on-set experience working for Cool Movies Productions under director Tom Vollmann. Under Tom’s guidance, Derek was able to experience acting, writing, directing, lighting, sound, and cinematography. He will never forget this experience, or Tom. May he rest in peace.

The second filmmaker and mentor Derek worked for was Kevin Mukherji of Magnum Independent Pictures. Derek as well, learned the fundamentals of film-making and is grateful that he continues to learn from Kevin today. Derek is the most passionate independent filmmaker you will ever meet! His bulldog tenacity is unmatched! He loves to bring people together to create awesome projects. He loves mentoring young aspiring filmmakers and creating a fun and inclusive atmosphere on set and is extremely grateful for his crew and actors that continue to come back and work with him!
