Superhero Faces Productions
A superhero is somebody who uses their power to perform good deeds. But these extraordinary people aren’t limited to works of fiction. Just because we can’t fly like Superman doesn’t mean we too can’t rise to the occasion when duty calls. And while we may not wield the power of the Force, we can still aid those who need help. Superhero Faces recognizes that fans of superheroes are just as capable of impressive feats as the caped crusaders they admire. By discussing fictional heroes old and new, sharing stories of fans who have channeled their passion to better themselves and their community, and encouraging others to examine why a particular character might resonate with them, we believe anyone can partake in a hero’s journey just as fulfilling as those from the stories we love.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Brad Faye is a native New Yorker, published author and Rocky Mountain Emmy-nominated producer. For 11 years, Brad worked as a producer for the National Basketball Association, where his work was featured on global platforms including ESPN, Sports Illustrated and USA Today. Opting to turn his attention towards his true passion, geek culture, Brad co-founded Superhero Faces along with Kelsey Dickerson and Arvind Navaratnasingham. The team has since had the opportunity to interview several iconic creators including George R.R. Martin (A Game of Thrones) and Stan Lee (Spider-Man/The X-Men), as well as several fans who have been impacted by their work. Brad has also authored his own graphic novel, One Nation: Out of the Darkness, which chronicles the journey of a young Muslim-American who discovers she has extraordinary powers. A fan of the late Joseph Campbell, Brad enjoys any opportunity he receives to explore the parallels between superheroes old and new, and discussing what it is that makes studying these legends worthwhile. His latest project, Geek, And You Shall Find, is a documentary exploring the rise of superhero stories and examining why they resonate with fans.
