Ciaran Flannery

Creative leader, strategist, and storyteller. Platform agnostic – from entertainment to marketing campaigns; traditional formats and series to immersive new media strategy and execution; at the global and regional level.

I decode core IP and create narratives that connect people to platforms and experiences. Storytelling and entertainment make brands relatable to the human condition – which is the key to successfully building audience/community affinity.

Some things I do

Storytelling, content marketing, creative strategy, content gamification, development and production, XR, long form documentary, immersive technologies, leadership, people management, budgets, linear, OTT, digital first, social, writing.
