Who We Are

Root Beer Studios has had the honor of working with hundreds of local artists and filmmakers throughout our history. We pride ourselves on the community we have built, but at our core, we are four dedicated individuals working together to do what we love.  

Brian Bouyea

Brian Bouyea is the founder and executive director of Root Beer Studios. With a dream that started in 8th grade until present day, he strives to create work that not only he can be proud of but that everyone involved with RBS can be as well. The art of collaboration is what fuels his projects and nothing is more satisfying then watching all the parts of a creative team come together. Filmmaking is what he loves and he hopes you can experience that same love with every Root Beer Studios film you enjoy.

Neil Guliano

Neil Guliano might be a freelance cinematographer, although he's more likely to introduce himself as a cat lover. His home away from home is on set working with a director helping their vision come to life. Weather it's working with a crew or acting as a one man band, he's dedicated to making his latest project the best thing he has ever shot.
