Featured Speaker

Bryan Coley, Reel Experiences

Bryan is founder and Chief Creative Officer of REEL Experiences. REEL Experiences was formed through years of story development alongside the creative team at Art Within, a non-profit organization developing methods to help screenwriters find their voice.  As the team was able to go deep to a writer’s heart quickly, Coley realized there was hidden treasure to be found in someone's favorite movies. The treasure began to be mined years later when Coley tried out some of his methods on small groups of friends. Surprisingly, people were changing their lives based on insights found in their top 10 movies. And REEL Experiences was born and REEL Studios opened, becoming a place where people could have an experiential way of finding their story while having that story be seen by the people with whom they work, live and play. 

Prior to REEL and Art Within, Bryan received a film degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and worked for Turner Broadcasting for 12 years.  During his time with Art Within, CRACKERJACK, a feature film executive produced and narrated by Jeff Foxworthy, was written and directed by Bryan.   

Today, Bryan and REEL Experiences is excited to be working in developing people and teams in some of the most influential businesses in our country.  Bryan resides in Marietta, GA with his favorite leading lady, Susan, and their children, Houston and Haviland.
