Nick is a produced, award-winning screenwriter, writing for both film and television. He specializes in Action-adventure and elevated horror, but has a secret history as a comedy writer (shh!). If he could have written *any* film it would be 'Raiders of the Lost Arc' (or 'REVENGE of the Jedi'). He dreams of one day writing for a franchise far, far away...
Nick spent 18 months writing and developing a TV series with Oscar winning Echo Lake Entertainment (TRUTH, NEBRASKA) and a year working for animation company Fabelizer as part of their writing team.
LANCELOT (aka LANCELOT REBORN) won the Grand Prize in the 2013 Big Break contest, winning Nick a trip to LA to pick up an award at the Screenwriter’s Choice Awards at Paramount Studios. LANCELOT also won the Gold Prize in PAGE International and has drawn praise from writer/producer Simon Kinberg (the X-MEN films, SHERLOCK HOLMES). KNIGHT KNIGHT came second in Big Break, winning Nick his 2nd trip to LA (the contest judges included the writers of GOLDENEYE, STARMAN and STAND BY ME). He co-produced KNIGHT KNIGHT in 2011.
Nick won an Empire Magazine screenwriting contest judged by one of his favorite British screenwriters: Stephen Knight (PEAKY BLINDERS, EASTERN PROMISES, LOCKE). He spent a year on the Working Title Films/BFI backed Guiding Lights mentoring scheme, mentored by one of his other favorite British screenwriters: Tony Grisoni (THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIOXTE, TIDELAND, FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS). He was also mentored by Disney/Pixar writer David Reynolds (FINDING NEMO) via the London Screenwriters’ Festival. He optioned his fantasy script PRINCE GURK to Aardman Animations’ former Head of Development.
FUNDAY, a short Nicholas wrote and executive produced, was nominated for a BAFTA. THE GOOD PEOPLE made the 2011 Brit List. LANDFILL made the 2014 Bitch List (a list of Bechdel test qualifying screenplays).
