Kieran Bourne

Kieran Bourne is a versatile Freelance Filmmaker, Director and Screenwriter.

As a director he's completed nine genre-spanning short films including the controversial multi-award nominated 'Say Your Name'; the engrossing comedy/drama 'Those of Us' and silent comedy 'She's Just a Girl and So Am I', all of which are currently doing the festival circuit in 2019.

2018 saw him direct three episodes of the flat share based comedy web series 'Just Saying'(Best Web Series nominee at Unrestricted View Film Festival). His adaptability has seen him now make the move toward directing commercials and music videos.

He served as screenwriter for the Film London Microwave shortlisted thriller 'Beneath the Mind'. Over the years he has developed treatments and screenplays with a range of filmmakers including Hollywood Stunt-Coordinator Marcus Shakesheff (Wonder Woman, Batman: Arkham Asylum), David Newton (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Game of Thrones) and award-winning director Ella Bennett (Last Leg, Dust).

Mentored by screenwriter Brock Norman Brock (Bronson, Yardie), Kieran became a full member of the Writers' Guild of Great Britain in recognition of his screenwriting work for feature film and television.

Continuing both as a collaborative screenwriter and a freelance director, Kieran demonstrates the dedication and commitment that has allowed him to be effective across a variety of disciplines.
