Brian Kassler

Brian Kassler is a semi retired producer based in Auckland.

Brian started out as a key grip, working on a dozen of New Zealand’s 1980’s feature films. He moved into the 1st AD and production world, before settling in and starting the production company Flying Fish with director Lee Tamahori in 1986. 

After 25 years at the helm of Flying Fish he sold his share of the company and now runs a cloud based screen production platform called Showtools.

He comes out of retirement every now and again to help companies who are in a tight spot and need a producer, 1st AD or a grip.
