14167 Films was formed in 2009 by director Nic Saunders with a short film collaboration with poet Michael McClure.

Nic Saunders studied at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London and made his professional directing debut with a stage production of the counter culture musical "Hair" at The Edinburgh Festival in 2003.

This was followed in 2004 with the World Premiere of "Black Aspirins" by Verity Bargate nominee Darrin Grimwood and in 2006 with the London revival of "The Beard" by Michael McClure.

The success of "The Beard" led Saunders and McClure to continue their association with the short film "Curses and Sermons" based on McClure’s 1968 poem "The Sermons of Jean Harlow and The Curses of Billy The Kid".

Conceived as part of a larger film project based on the work of the American Beat poets, but filmed as a self contained entity, the film went on to play at film festivals across the World winning several awards.

Encouraged by the reception to the first film, 14167 Films have continued to develop their Beat project and have, to date, produced short films based on or inspired by the work of Allen Ginsberg, William S Burroughs and Jack Kerouac.
