Brian Elliott

Faculty-in-Residence - North Village, Heritage House

FIR since Fall 2014

Professor Brian Elliott serves as the Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) for Heritage House, home to the Fine Arts Living-Learning Center. Brian has served at Baylor for over 20 years as a Senior Lecturer and the Director of Interns in the Film & Digital Media Division of the Communication Studies Department. His primary teaching interests focus on film/TV production, screenwriting, entertainment management and faith & media.

In addition to his work at Baylor, Brian is an award-winning producer-writer-director whose projects have taken him to 11 countries and 5 continents. His most recent feature screenplay, Blur Circle, is currently shooting in and around Central Texas. Brian is also in development with the project The Time It Never Rained, an adaptation of the novel written by prolific western writer Elmer Kelton.

Brian received both his B.A. and M.A. from Baylor University. Throughout the years he has served on various committees, but it was his involvement with the Board of Advisors for the Fine Arts Living-Learning Center that spurred his interest in being a Faculty-in-Residence. "When people ask why I want to serve in this position, the answer is fairly simple. My life was extraordinarily changed because a few mentors sacrificed their time to invest in me. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to give away in some small measure what was given to me." Brian considers it his greatest honor to share life with his incredible wife Susan and his two awesome sons, Tim (21) and Ben (19).
