About the Director: 

Bryan Wizemann is an award winning writer and director of film. His short film work includes BUTTON SOUP (Johnson Museum, Cinema Village NY), THE MORNING SUN (Rooftop Films, IFC), the television pilot COOKLYN, and FILM MAKES US HAPPY, which documents the last fight he will ever have with his wife about making films (Hamptons, IFF Boston, Rooftop Films, DocPoint, Wholphin).

His film LOSING GROUND (Cinequest, CineVegas, Santa Fe) was called “fascinating filmmaking that gets to the core of humanity” by Film Threat and is available from Netflix. His film THINK OF ME, featuring Lauren Ambrose, Audrey Scott, Dylan Baker, and Penelope Ann Miller, premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival where Rex Reed called it a “wrenching but admirably unsentimental film about the bravery of the human condition.” HUMOR ME, a romantic comedy written with Andrew Semans, was recently optioned out of the IFP Independent Film Week and is currently in development. Bryan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Film synopsis: 
Las Vegas. Present day. A downward spiraling economy. Think of Me is the heartbreaking story of Angela Jerome (Lauren Ambrose, SIX FEET UNDER), a young single mother doing her level best not to fall apart. Her daughter Sunny (newcomer Audrey Scott) is one of the few joys in her life, but raising a child alone is a struggle on even the best of days. When the worst week of Angela's life builds to a breaking point, she is faced with an impossible choice: keep trying to make things work, or let it all go for the promise of something better. Co-starring Dylan Baker (HAPPINESS) as Max, a nihilistic reflection of Las Vegas itself, and his sister, Louise (Penelope Ann Miller, THE ARTIST), whose self-interested offer of 'help' becomes the hardest decision Angela will ever have to make.

Film reviews: 
"Finally, trembling with vulnerability, the sensitive and versatile Lauren Ambrose is positively devastating in Think of Me, playing a jobless, poverty-stricken single mother struggling to survive in the phony swirl of Las Vegas. —She is heartbreaking without a shred of self-pity, and Think of Me is a sad, wrenching but admirably unsentimental film about the bravery of the human condition that truly deserves a bigger audience.” —Rex Reed, The New York Observer “Ambrose is on-screen for virtually every second, emanating a gorgeous, doomed charisma, and holds you in suspense the whole way...it's a worthwhile recession-era drama built around a terrific performance.” —Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com “This intense, emotional film from director Bryan Wizemann captures the stress bearing down on many American families during these tough economic times in a way that few others have, or have even attempted to. —Ambrose's performance, in particular, is generating considerable buzz.” —Scott Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter
