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!). 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 (THE GREAT, TRUTH, NEBRASKA) and a year working for animation company Fabelizer as part of their writing team.
LANCELOT won the Grand Prize in the 2013 Big Break contest, winning Nick a trip to LA to pick up his 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 2nd in Big Break in 2007, winning Nick his first trip to LA (the contest judges included the writers of GOLDENEYE, STARMAN and STAND BY ME). He co-produced KNIGHT KNIGHT in 2011 starring Mingus Johnston (KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE, JACK THE GIANT KILLER).
His horror THE GOOD PEOPLE was selected for the UK's prestigious Brit List, alongside screenplays for THE INVISIBLE WOMAN (directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes), OUR KIND OF TRAITOR (starring Ewan McGregor and Damian Lewis) and MAN UP (starring Simon Pegg). LANDFILL made the 2014 Bitch List (a list of Bechdel test qualifying screenplays).
Nick won Empire Magazine's 'Write Locke's Last Scene' contest judged by Stephen Knight (LOCKE, PEAKY BLINDERS, SPENCER). He spent a year on the Working Title Films/BFI backed Guiding Lights mentoring scheme, mentored by Tony Grisoni (THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIOXTE, FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS). He was also mentored by Disney/Pixar writer David Reynolds (FINDING NEMO) via the London Screenwriters’ Festival.
FUNDAY, a short Nick wrote and executive produced, was nominated for a BAFTA.
