Peter Gerard is an experienced film producer, an entertainment industry executive, a serial tech entrpreneur, and a leading expert in digital distribution technology and online marketing strategy.
I grew up in Columbia, Missouri, where, as a teenager, I made my first award-winning documentary (Out of Breath), published two books (written by my grandmother) and founded the Bargain Basement Film Festival (mid-Missouri's first film festival).
I then moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, where I worked in design and web development, volunteered as Design Editor for the Student Newspaper, and completed my film & photography degree.
Accidental Media (1999-2012)
My production company, Accidental Media, began flourishing in the early 2000s, and I made my first feature documentary for international television distribution (Just to Get a Rep). I produced and directed a range of documentaries, music videos, and short films, and picked up a pile of awards including a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award. Offering a full range of production services, we made films for businesses, theatres and non-profits, and filmed scenes that were adapted into the Oscar-nominated animation The Illusionist.
