Born and raised in New York, Brianna's passion for visual arts began when she received her first digital camera from her father at the age of 17. Continuing to build on this passion she later went to Lehman College in the Bronx, NY to pursue a BA in Film & TV Studies.
While at Lehman, the passion she had quickly transformed into a focus for television production after landing her first internship at Bronxnet Community Television in 2014, also conveniently located on Lehman’s campus. At Bronxnet, Brianna was able to significantly build her technical skills as she held a variety of studio production positions including studio camera operator, technical director/director and lead floor manager and also worked as a videographer/editor for field productions. She also served as Bronxnet's Intern & Studio Coordinator where she both recruited and trained high school and college students in all aspects of studio production.
From Bronxnet, Brianna has gone on to freelance for various networks and companies including CNN’s Headline News, BET, The Apollo, The American Medical Association and The Grio; institutions such as New York Theological Seminary and Columbia University and has served as a production consultant and cinematographer for a variety of video projects and independent short films.
As of now, Brianna is working within her own production company, Brianna Rohlehr Visuals LLC, as a multimedia creative and a teaching artist and enjoys any opportunity that will allow her to express her creative vision and technical abilities. In the meantime, she continuously aims to connect with more creatives in order to produce content for small, large and new platforms, businesses and many more.
