Brian Latt

Executive Producer, Partner

Brian Latt joined m ss n g p eces as an Executive Producer and Partner in August 2014.

After moving from his role of President at Tool of North America, he opened up our LA office, effectively turning m ss ng p eces into a bi-coastal award-winning production company.

Most recently, the company was honored with a spot on Creativity’s Production Company A-List.

Prior to joining m ss ng p eces, Brian transformed Tool’s modest roster of seven directors into a global powerhouse. During his eight year tenure, Tool experienced a tremendous creative renaissance; never before had a traditional production company successfully transformed into a fully integrated shop with a full complement of in-house digital services and interactive directors. In other words, Brian created a new category of production company, one that led them to 12 Cannes Lions and two Emmy awards.

A graduate of MIT, Brian got his start in the world of production early on, traveling the globe with rock stars like George Michael, for whom he designed and created laser lighting and effects. After becoming an Executive Producer at MJZ, the company won the Palme D’or at Cannes. Brian has also earned two Director’s Guild of America award nominations, and served on the AICP National Board and West Board.
