Casey Coleman is a filmmaker, musician and Executive Director of Court 13 Arts. Upon moving to New Orleans in 2005 to study film at the University of New Orleans, Casey fell in with the whirlwind that was the Glory at Sea film crew, and has been collaborating with Benh Zeitlin and the rest of the Court 13 universe ever since. As a freelance filmmaker, his credits include: Producer, Brimstone & Glory; Associate Producer, Beasts of the Southern Wild; supervising locations and casting; Speciality Casting, 12 Years a Slave; and Producer, Big Freedia’s Y’all Get Back Now music video. Casey helped found and has been the Executive Director of Court 13 Arts since 2016. He also plays guitar and bongos in Rory Danger & the Danger Dangers, the world’s only 7-piece Dadaist rockabilly performance art band. He believes enormously in the power of celebration and collaboration as uniting forces.
