Andy Erwin is a filmmaker and storyteller and is half of the filmmaking duo The Erwin Brothers with his brother Jon. Erwin began his career as a teenager working for ESPN as a camera operator in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. As a sports cameraman, Erwin worked with ESPN College Football Primetime, FOX NFL, and the NBA covering events such as the X Games and the Super Bowl.
In 2002, Andy founded a production company with his brother Jon. After working on commercials and music videos, the brothers turned to developing feature films and have created features such as OCTOBER BABY, MOM'S NIGHT OUT, WOODLAWN and the 2018 smash hit I CAN ONLY IMAGINE.
In 2020, the Erwin Brothers released the film I STILL BELIEVE on March 13, the same weekend that the global pandemic was declared.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Andy about his journey to filmmaking, how ESPN and a desire to work in sports helped jumpstart his career, why he wanted to make films of faith, and what the Lord has taught him during this pandemic.
