How It All Began…
Brittany graduated from Liberty University in 2017 with a Cinematic Arts degree. She has since worked on 12 short films and three features, two of which have had theatrical releases (Extraordinary and Indivisible). She is pursuing film as a career, particularly as a Production Designer. You can see her website and examples of her beautiful work here: https://brittanypolzella.com
In 2018, she attended the Christian Worldview Film Festival for the first time. While scrolling the group’s Facebook page afterward, she noticed an announcement for a military movie to begin filming that summer. “So I commented and asked for more information. A few days later I submitted my resume… Two weeks later, I received a random Facebook message from this guy named Matthew Jordan, asking if I was ‘the Brittany’ he was trying to find. Somehow he had heard of me…and connected my name to the resume I had submitted. He was interested in me coming onto his project, and within a day or two I was gifted with the chance to production design my first feature, Counter Column!”
Favorite Verse[s] – Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.'”
Matthew 5:16: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
“One speaks of God having a plan for our lives that is for good,” Brittany shares. “The other is about how we are to use our lives to shine Jesus’ light. I must believe that the Lord has a plan for my life when my own health is a miracle, and I choose to believe that He must continue to have a plan with my career. Even when life isn’t the most joyful, I choose to shine because the Lord has saved me and there’s no greater joy than that.”
Favorite Food – Chocolate-covered strawberries and homemade lasagna or ziti with goat cheese.
Fun Fact – “I am a huge Captain America fan, and I have a costume with built-in muscles to prove it,” Brittany says. Also, “Bugs and Brittany are not friends.” Any girls lodging with Brittany during Counter Column can attest to this. 😉
