Brian Maurer, Assistant Practicing Professional Professor
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
I am an Assistant Professional Practice Professor of media for the IT Program. I’m also an independent film director and producer, and business owner of two film production businesses. I’ve been in the field of media creation and film production for the last 10 years. I started a small production company in Columbia in 2010, servicing clients ranging from small business and local government entities, to national broadcast productions and LA based feature films. I’ve written and directed three feature length films, was a Director of Photography and Producer on another, and camera operator on another. Long story short: I’ve been around a film set or two. I’ve worked my way up from the early days of miniDV tape to RAW 5K video. I got my start in audio capture and engineering.
Prior to my appointment in the College of Engineering, I was an Assistant Professor of Film Studies, and the Director of Film Production at the University of Missouri. I have since found a home here in the IT program and am very happy to be serving the students interested in Media Technology.
