McDonogh grad Brian Levin just wrapped his first movie, due in theaters next spring.

Westminster native Brian Levin makes his feature film debut as writer and producer of the comedy Flock of Dudes next spring, and his journey into the entertainment industry should give ambitious prospective filmmakers encouragement:  Talent, hard work and stick-to-it-tive-ness really do pay off.

After graduating from Towson University and getting his master’s degree at American University in D.C., the 1998 McDonogh School grad headed to New York.  It was there that his online comedy show “The Post Show,” which he co-created with friends Bob Castrone (who he met at Towson) and Jason Zumwait (who he met in NY at a comedy show), got him noticed.

“That got our foot in the door in the film and television industry,” Levin says.  A move to Los Angeles followed and since then he and his partners have written and produced television pilots and sold screenplays. Flock of Dudes is the first screenplay they’ve had in production, which Castrone directs and Levin produces.
