Ian Kellett

Senior Producer

Ian Kellett started his film career young, acting as a local television host as a child and hasn't left the industry since. In highschool he created the F-Stop Film festival for Colorado high school students as well as the Douglas County Television Academy. Ian was already creating work for clients as a freelance filmmaker as well as working for the local DC8 tv studio. He spent some time in both New York and California, working on sets such as “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2”. Before graduating high school, Ian had several Emmy awards, Telly Awards, and major motion picture work under his belt. Ian graduated from CU Denver's College of Arts & Media with a Film/Theater/Television Degree in 2013. Ian helped found Liquid Luck in 2011, starting his work with clients with his wife Lauryn. Today, he produces several projects at Liquid Luck for branding, commercial and television projects. He also sits on the board of the Colorado Film & Video Association as the President.

Ian loves to work on videos that help define a company's "why", making stories that audiences can really connect to. Ian loves the challenge of trying to make corporate branding creative, engaging and cinematic. Having a story that audiences can connect with is Ian's goal behind every story. Ian wants to work on stories about people challenging themselves and overcoming obstacles. Working with teams of creatives that can have fun and get the job done is his favorite environment to be in.
