Time River Productions

general information

TIME RIVER PRODUCTIONS (TRP) was created informally in 1973 in Arizona during the making of the short film "TIME RIVER" at Southwestern Studios in Carefree, Arizona. The experimental dramatic film was written, directed, and co-produced by the owner of Time River Productions, Kevin Cloud Brechner. Time River Productions was formed as a business in the State of California in 1976 for the purpose of engaging in motion picture and television production and scientific investigations. TIME RIVER LABORATORY was formed at the same time as a division of Time River Productions.

From 1975 through 1985 Time River Productions was located in the infamous art colony, the Hotel Carver, 107 South Fairoaks Avenue in the historic Oldtown district of Pasadena. Following the 1985 eviction of all the studios in the Hotel Carver, TRP moved to 253 S. Rosemead Boulevard Pasadena for 14 years, and then in 1999 to its current studio location in East Pasadena.

Kevin Cloud Brechner has over 2500 production credits, mostly as a director, writer, and/or producer of video and film projects. The genres have included dramas, comedies, live music concerts, a zillion talk shows, documentaries, pilots, sports, PSAs, commercials, and industrials. He has had experience directing single camera film and video, multi-camera television, and live shows. He worked for many years as a Production Manager overseeing two community cable stations. He has experience in radio as a disc jockey, voice-over announcer, and in station management.

He also has a diverse background in both the arts and sciences. He has taught science, social psychology, and experimental psychology classes at the University of California, Irvine, California State University, Los Angeles, Art Center College of Design, and Arizona State University. He has published in many professional journals.
