    "Brian's efforts to document Nashville's endangered historic places with the use of a drone and music is ingenious and aligns perfectly with Historic Nashville's mission. We are so appreciative that Brian creates these stunning videos that show images of historic places that are often overlooked, unknown, and cannot be viewed from the street. The aerial views are important for not only documentation and education, but also for inspiring action and advocacy. Brian's creative work is helping promote and preserve the historic places that make Nashville unique, and for that we are truly grateful."

    "As the Metro Council person for District 20, I've been fortunate enough to be able to utilize Brian's creative drone work to visually document the changes in our community. It has given us a broader perspective on growth with his beautifully produced video series, but also has given our community positive media exposure. His drone coverage has even helped us advocate for getting thousands of trees planted in our district!"

    Brian Siskind

    I have 25 years of professional creative work in realms from media production, music production and original film score, fine art photography, documentary film, new media, technology, and marketing as a Strategist and Creative Director.


    My independent film projects are immersed often in abandoned, forgotten places, and endangered historic properties. I also tell the stories of people in relation to place.


    I see endless potential to use drones for artistic and commercial projects that expand perceptions - and for social good. Being a longtime music artist and visual artist, makes for an ideal marriage of the visual with the sonic.


    I constantly wonder - what Mark Rothko would do with a flying camera? - or Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Yves Klein, James Turrell, Georgia O'Keeffe, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Alfred Stieglitz, or Weegie? This consumes me.
