BIO: BRETT WILLIAM MAUSER
After his graduation from Kingwood High School in 1991, Brett nurtured his creative inclinations at San Antonio College,
earning an Associate's Degree in Applied Science in Radio-Television-Film.
His career took flight in 1997 when he founded Ponderous Productions in Denver, Colorado. The Texas native returned home
in 2000, serving as a versatile Multimedia Journalist for KXXV in the city of Waco. 2004 saw Brett managing production at
KWDB, the Corpus Christi Warner Brother's affiliate. Here, he formed a successful partnership with producer, Bradley Bates.
Their collaborative brilliance resulted in nearly a hundred award-winning commercials and acclaimed films like "Barrio
Angelz" and "Cartel Killaz," securing nationwide distribution.
Returning to San Antonio in 2006, Brett and Bates embarked on an ambitious ten-film project, "The Innocence Saga,"
contributing significantly to Brett's feature film portfolio. His films during this period found widespread distribution,
including a historic bio-pic, "Bass Reeves." In 2010, Brett chose to further his education, taking a brief detour
as a photojournalist at KIII in Corpus Christi. Around this time, Ponderous Productions transitioned into Not-So-Sane Entertainment,
a company that gained recognition for its award-winning short films.
Mauser wrote the book on Making a Movie With No Money. Literally. His book plays parts as both a textbook and an explanation
of his no budget filmmaking philosophy. Many of his latest films including "Red Days," "Lady Lawman,"
and "Knight Watchmen," are available for streaming on sites like Amazon and Tubi. His latest western feature, "The
Oldest Posse," is scheduled for release in November.
Brett, a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, holds both a Bachelor's and a Master's
Degree in Communication. After producing communications materials for the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority
for over three years, he returned to San Antonio, where he presently educates budding filmmakers at Northwest Vista College.
