working where film meets the web

Drop me a mail


Hello, my name is Kieran. I provide product development, business strategy, and direct distribution insight for filmmakers and companies such as: Tugg, Film London, Assemble, and Distrify. I also write on tech + film for Filmmaker Magazine.

I began my career as a full-stack web developer working for Internet Service Providers and large media companies like BSkyB, the BBC and Future Media.

My academic background is in Film Studies and in 2009 I combined my love of film and my web technology experience and co-founded OpenIndie. We crowdfunded, built and launched OpenIndie, the first theatrical on-demand web platform, in just four months.

Since selling my share in OpenIndie in early 2013 my career has been focused on working with companies that help filmmakers sell their work direct and build sustainable careers.

If you are a filmmaker or film-focused company and would like to talk about how I can help you, please do not hesitate to drop me a mail.
