Brian Kelly

Producer

Brian moved from the US to Europe in 1985 as a musician and songwriter performing concerts all across Europe. As Brian worked in music and TV production, he discovered that many noteworthy productions were not getting the audience they deserved. So in 1990 he founded a distribution company to help address that issue. Over the years, NLN has distributed 15,000+ titles into more than 30 countries, in many cases being the first international company to do so. The distribution work continues, but Brian has also returned to film production in recent years and currently works as a film producer with partners in the US as well as mentoring young producers.
