Retrospecter is the partnership of filmmakers Laura Moss and Brendan J. O'Brien.
Our work explores the present through the lens of the past, often employing period-appropriate cameras and technology.
Our films have played at festivals worldwide, including Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, Rooftop Film Festival and Clermont-Ferrand. We have been featured online as a Vimeo Staff Pick and on the Criterion Channel. Our commercial work was honored with an AICP award and is currently archived in MoMA's permanent collection.
We are honored to be working with a host of talented Partners and Supporters.
