Billy S. Spurlock is a renaissance man making his way through the world today, and it takes everything he's got. Writing, acting, accounting, composing; there's nothing he can't do. Billy came from a small town in rural Indiana where he spent his time honing his creative skills by watching the masterpieces of the greats, and it all started with Billy's foray into the world of short film-making, beginning with a slew of stop-motion shorts. Billy spent the next decade living a double life; posing as a mild-mannered student by day, masquerading as a mild-mannered theatre employee by night. Eventually, through a bizarre series of events, Billy met the equally mild-mannered Brandon and together they embarked on a journey to leave their mark on all mankind. Additionally, Billy is the lead singer/song writer/bass player for the up-and-coming, force-to-be-reckoned-with punk rock band affectionately know as The Putz, with whom he travels the continental United States filling the stale air of dive bars everywhere with infectiously melodic orchestrations. In his free time Billy puts on a suit and tie and sits at a desk in a cubicle where he acts like an accountant, crunching numbers, preparing tax returns, et cetera, all for the sake of irony. Lastly, it is imperative to note that among Billy's vast array of hobbies and extracurricular activities he is also the proud father of a fat, funny baby girl with the handshake of a used car salesman.
Brandon Yotter graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Telecommunications in 2007. Since then, he has moved to Indianapolis working a number of jobs from movie theatres to tea shops to websites. Brandon spends most of his free time writing, watching movies, playing bass, and reading everything from classics to comics. He hopes to one day sell a script or idea to further fund his adventures with Billy and his crew of film makers.
Brandon co-created Billy and Brandon Watch Movies with Billy S. Spurlock. They also write and star in every episode and show no signs of letting up. With a great crew and a solid supporting cast, they hope to be able to continue to produce this show and possibly others like it.

Jarrod Bridgeman graduated in 2007 with a degree in Telecommunications Production. Since then he moved to Indianapolis, IN with his heart set on video production. Well, it took a couple of years and countless hours as the best employee Blockbuster Video ever had! Jarrod now works full time for a production company where he writes, shoots, edits, and occasionally acts in videos. These skills lead to the biggest and most important move in his life: His work with Billy and Brandon Watch Movies. Once Jarrod became a crew member, Billy and Brandon reached new heights never before seen. Oh he also got married and had his first child.
Stephan Stevenson is a French Canadian who is in America as an exchange student studying acting from the University of Phoenix. His father was a fire-eating tightrope walker and his mother the Prime Minister of Vancouver. She was tragically left a widower and Stephan a bastard when his father mistakenly caught his tightrope on fire during an act.
Stephan hopes to shift his talents to the world of music with the release of his upcoming solo album A Boy and his Kazoo where he covers popular children's songs with nothing but his voice, a kazoo, his childlike wonderment, and a pocketful of dreams.
He first became involved with Billy and Brandon Watch Movies when his cash was declined at a local coffee shop. A handsome young man named Brandon Yotter stood behind him and offered to buy his latte if he would let Brandon hit him in the face with a pie. The rest is history.
Jordan Ryan is a 2010 graduate of Herron School of Art & Design's Art History program. She is currently employed at an art library, where her work focuses on circulation and reference services as well as research for the library's digital collections. She is also an intern at two local institutions with a focus on historic research and preservation and a TA for an introductory art history course.
This fall, Jordan is entering IUPUI's Public History master's program, with her thesis work related to Indianapolis history and visual culture.
She became involved in Billy & Brandon when her partner, director/cameraman/actor/human extraordinaire, Kurt Lee Nettleton asked her to take on the female lead roles. She has no prior acting or performing experience, which is pretty obvious.
