About Nigel

I'm the type of filmmaker that is happiest when I'm mixing it up, whether it's writing a unique creative idea for a brief, directing talent, editing or shooting.

Originally from London, I initially trained as an architect before striking out to pursue my real passion, filmmaking. Along the way I’ve worked at major post houses and a couple of leading production companies. I’ve cut over a thousand TVC’s in Australia and the UK, directed an award winning short film, a few TVC’s and a TV stand up comedy series. I’ve also edited and co-produced a feature length documentary and won a couple of Gold awards for an online video campaign I wrote, directed and edited. I’m also in the Guinness Book of Records, but that’s another story.

I love being able to combine all my skills to create films that resonate beyond being just communication tools. Companies, products, even people, they’re all fascinating stories waiting to be told, and that’s what I’m passionate about exploring. Stories.
