Kelly Needleman is a well known Director, Actor, Producer, Photographer, and Entrepreneur.
Kelly at a young age had a creative eye. Growing up with his cousin, David Needleman, who is a professional photographer that shoots celebrities, influenced him to pick up a camera. Kelly gravitated towards the beauty of nature and started taking images and time-lapses of landscapes. His strong ambition to create resulted in being published in various publications and awards, such as National Geographic and Canon (etc). This attention resulted in a sponsorship deal with Lowepro, a prestigious camera bag company. His images became viral on social media resulting in a celebrity status following.
Kelly’s passion for landscape photography was a natural progression into the film industry. He created his own company called Needleman Productions, where he showcases his movies. He has been recognized locally as a student filmmaker and has recently won a prestigious award (Best Young Director) for his documentary, MY IDENTITY, in the Hollywood International Independent Film Festival. His ambition is to make beautiful movies by utilizing the natural elements of nature, fog, sea, and sunlight as tools in an outdoor studio.
Kelly is sponsored with a prestigious watch company called Holzkern based out of Austria due to his portfolio and credibility. He represents their content creator and influencer by creating various commercial videos and photos.
Kelly also works in front of the camera as an actor. He is signed with MDT Agency in San Francisco, which led him to various commercial, print, and movie work.
