Regan Brashear
Making Change Media
United States

Regan has a BA in American Studies and a MA in Social Documentation (Documentary Film) from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Originally from Virginia, Regan  has been working on labor, disability, youth, LGBT, race and environmental issues for over 20 years now through documentary film, union organizing, community forums, teen theater and many other creative tools.  Regan currently serves as Co-Producer for THE GROVE, a new film about the National AIDS Memorial Grove, and as Community Engagement Coordinator for the Academy Award-shortlisted film on Lyme disease, UNDER OUR SKIN. She is a co-founder and core member of the Making Change Media Collective in Oakland, CA, which produces videos for non-profits, labor unions and other economic, environmental and social justice causes. 

She is currently in post-production on FIXED:The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement, a new documentary about disability, eugenics, and emerging human enhancement technologies. Her interest in disability studies, which eventually led to the making of FIXED, started in 1997, after a car accident which began an ongoing journey with chronic pain, sparking many life changes, including starting to take her passion for film seriously. Now she's learning how to take funding films seriously and  has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the final funds needed to complete FIXED. She has until August 30th to raise $25K or she won't receive any of the money donated! Please visit the FIXED Kickstarter page and help finish FIXED!
