A day arrives when you're on a movie set and your phone rings. First, it's the loss of a brother, then a father stricken by cancer, followed by a mother who can no longer care for herself. These common life events are everywhere you look, but with hectic schedules and consuming careers we often miss the person who falls off the grid to care for a loved one. Seven BryJoseph has spent the last eight years as a caregiver, waking up each day caring for his elderly mother and managing his way through the endless doctor visits, trips to the ER, and piles of bills. The days of movie sets, and late-night dinner parties are distant memories of the past. Life is real now and these experiences have transformed Seven from an ambitious actor to a filmmaker who's ready to transform lives! Through all the turbulence, he still claims, “When the waters calm and the pages turn, destiny will be there waiting!” That's his motto!
Seven's career as an actor and filmmaker spans several decades. Early on he appeared in crime shows such as Forensic Files, North Mission Road, and The New Detectives. While selling real estate and attending acting workshops, he went on to book larger roles and appeared in commercials for McDonald's, Edward Jones, and Vehix.com, among many others. Companies like Hyatt Regency, Furniture Row, Swedish Match, and The Lodge Casino took notice and placed the actor in their advertisements. His career took a further step forward when he booked one of the main roles in the jaw-dropping comedy, The Westminster Wife Show.
During his journey the actor became hungry to write and produce his own material. Marc Scott Zicree (Star Trek: – The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Space Command, The Twilight Zone Companion, etc...) became his mentor and helped him frame authentic stories and take them to the screen. Seven's award-winning short film Honor and Defeat lit the match for a career in filmmaking. For a period, he wrote and produced commercials and advertisements, but found his way back to the big screen when he created the movie Deck Hunters.
Today, Seven embraces each day with deep inner warmth, knowing there is no promise for tomorrow. While continuing to care for his mother, he nurtures his soul with balance, direction, and Spirit. His life as a filmmaker has been rediscovered, but more importantly, his productions will pay homage to his Native American ancestry. His heart and soul are with the Utes. Cameras have been removed from storage, editing systems have been fired up, and Father Sky Films has again seen the light of day. With three upcoming productions currently funded and in development, Seven BryJoseph will create content that will touch hearts, bring clarity to those who seek it, and show the world we can all access miracles!
