Charles Brescia


A member of the Buckinghamshire New University (BNU) faculty since 2002, I bring an extensive track record of Film and Television Industry practice to my academic work.

After graduating from Ithaca College with a BSc in Television-Radio, I worked for 35 years in the Film and TV production industries in New York, Los Angeles and London prior to entering my current academic role. I gained a PGCLTHE from Buckinghamshire New University in 2004, and I am a Fellow of Advance HE.

Alongside my position at BNU I continue to engage with the industry, in particular with broadcast television operations.

Areas of expertise include producing, directing and production management for film and television and preparation for the Film and Television Industries.  My scholarly interests include contemporary Film and Television Industry practice. I am a member of the Directors Guild of America.
