About Bryan

My name is Bryan Hong.

I am from Los Angeles.

In my previous lives I’ve been an automotive writer, theatrical stage manager, web developer and professional gambler. And we haven’t even gotten to any of my hobbies yet!

I went to UC San Diego and later, LA Film School.

Today I primarily work in the film industry on low budget independent feature films, commercials and music videos as a grip and when I’m lucky, cinematographer.

I have an intensely curious personality. I hate wondering. So I have a tendency to want to try everything and explore every place and experience everything. I wanna know why. I wanna know what love is. And I want you to show me. Wait. What? lol.

I’m pretty active at my church, The English Ministry of GMl.

I consider myself a driving enthusiast and I’ve had a life-long love affair with video gaming. I’m fascinated by linguistics and just learning about how everything is connected and constantly evolves. I speak English and Spanish and a little bit of Russian. I understand Korean but I cannot speak it. Sad, I know. I love playing music. People who know me know that music is always coming out of me :)

And lately I’ve gotten really into running!

Although I enjoy distance running, the full marathon for me was meant to be a one time, bucket list type of activity. I just wanted to set a decent time and be happy with it for the rest of my life. My goal was to finish in under 4 hours but that year turned out to be the hottest L.A. Marathon on record. Temperatures reached into the 90’s which made things very difficult, and dozens of people went to the hospital with heat stroke. Under the conditions you could say that I was satisfied with my time of 4 hours, 34 minutes and 35 seconds. But I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied with wondering for the rest of my life what I could have done if the weather was different.

Training for a full marathon is ridiculously time consuming and I really wasn’t up for doing it again right away. I was glad to get my life back and my wife was glad to get me back, too. So I decided to wait a few years and try again in 2018 when I would be the youngest in the 40 and up group. And this time I’m doing things a little bit differently. So here are four things I’m doing differently this time around:
