Max Kaiser

Founder and CEO, Hand Crank Films and Pipeline Software

Max Kaiser has been mixing tech and video all his life. Right out of college Max lived in NYC and spent days as the head of HTML development at Scholastic, and nights acting and making short films with friends. Max then moved to Bellingham where most of his extended family resides, to direct his first feature film. While producing his film, Max worked for his family’s financial services firm, Saturna Capital, as their first marketing director. Max went on to found Hand Crank Films in 2005 where he helmed nearly 15 years of making award-winning commercials, corporate videos, and documentaries in the Northwest region. Max’s latest venture is Pipeline video production management software. Max and the Pipeline team are just going in to beta release on their software and expect it to be available to the public in early 2020.
