When I first met him, he completely ignored me the entire evening while his friends kept saying how incredible awesome and cool he was. "He plays poker to finance his films," was probably the most heard sentence during that evening in the Charterhouse bar back in October. And I have to admit, that does sound incredibly sexy. (Scenes from Brad Pitt and George Clooney from Ocean’s 11 start flashing through my head right now…)

Well, I did get to speak to him a bit since and he told me about his first shortfilm Breaker, his participation in Straight8 and his first feature that he is working on.
Straight8 is (quoting Nick) "the most hardcore back to basics film comp out there. They give you one cartridge of super8 to make a film on, you shoot everything in camera and submit it blind (no editing), with a soundtrack that you hope syncs up."

The best 10 films from the Straight8 competition get a screening in Cannes during the filmfestival (also the first time the film makers see their actual result). Nick participated the last 3 times. Both his first and second film were selected for Cannes and he got a call last week that his third film for this year’s selection won the competition! So again: Cannes! Go Nick!

Check out his first Straigt8 film, Earth to Earth, on the BBC film network site. Have a look at it and rate it. (That does require registration, but it takes less than 2 minutes)

Here’s a production shot from that first film and below you can find the full second film:


Got, Got, Need! – Awesome straight8 film

Jaja, om het in de woorden van andere internetgoden te zeggen: Hij kan mij krijgen…
