Mini Bio (2)
Cornelius Muller is a Brooklyn, NY native whose love of family is second only to his love of God. Cornelius moved to North Carolina to attend college and since graduating from Elon University has been a mainstay around Alamance County, NC for nearly 20 years now.
While attending to his business interests over the years, his true passion emerged when, approximately 15 years ago, he began pursuing his dream in the arts. Since then he has appeared in a number of commercials and independent films while continuing his studies in method acting at Carolina Actors Group in Winston-Salem.
Cornelius had been seriously questioning where he fit in in the entertainment industry when a personal family tragedy occurred. His answer came in the form of a film project titled "Brother's Keeper" which came about after he received what can only be called signs from above leading him in the direction of this movie.
His mission became to create a Christian film, based on his real life events, that makes people think and inspires them, and answers what he feels is his calling to produce such meaningful film projects.
Thus was born Cornelius Muller Productions, LLC, with a mission to entertain, inspire, influence and change lives for the better through entertainment and charitable contributions.

After a change in career from a desire to play professional basketball, a visit to the theater with his Godmother to see Jerry McGuire and an urging from childhood friend Dondre Whitfield, who was having much success in television, Cornelius began a new path. Coming to North Carolina from Brooklyn, New York, on a basketball scholarship, Cornelius graduated from Elon University and decided to return to North Carolina after graduation due to the film production happening in North Carolina at the time.
Initially beginning with acting classes at HB Studios in NYC, Cornelius settled in on the Carolina Actors Group, a Sanford-Meisner method acting group, taught by Burgess Jenkins, in Winston-Salem North, Carolina, to focus and become a professional craftsman.
After some minimal success in the business, Cornelius felt like he was being led to create inspirational, redemptive films. His first short film was Brother's Keeper: A story of faith, love and forgiveness which was based on personal experience.
Next came his first feature production, Find A Way, which he Executive Produced and was the lead. Find A Way was loosely based on a true, story, received national and international distribution and was highly exalted by Dr. Maya Angelou.
His most recent production, Sacred Kind of Love, which he Executive Produced and was the lead, is in post-production and will be out for national distribution on several platforms in the near future.
