Director Bryan Poyser gets the Soto Boy Design + Illustration treatment!!
When you get the “Soto Brothers” respect, its almost like you’ve now made it into the cool club. Director Bryan Poyser has been in the “industry” for 15 plus years slaving over thoughtful dramas that really push your buttons.

Critically acclaimed Director Jeremy Konner has made us rethink history with his hysterical series Drunk History that he created with Derek Waters. He’s also helped showcase the real side of Tenacious D and even recently has given us the newest look of the band She and Him.
