NIC COLLINS

I’m a freelance writer, director, producer, and editor based in Los Angeles. With roots in guerrilla filmmaking and directing videos within the Chicago hip hop and punk music scene, I’m passionate about telling stories from unique perspectives that are visually stunning as well as creating unforgettable viewing experiences and characters that feel authentic. My work has screened at SXSW, DTLA Film Festival, Rome International Film Festival, and FilmQuest; featured on MTV, Film Shortage, DUST and Awardeo; and written up on UPROXX, ScreenRant, The Daily Dot and Gizmodo. My screenplays have advanced to the second round of the Sundance Institute | New Voices Lab and the Semi-Finals at the ScreenCraft Action/Adventure Screenplay Contest. I'm also a recipient of the Maverick Movie Award for my series Year of the Snake. I also host a bi-monthly screening series in LA for both established and indie filmmakers called Short Round Cool Shit and a weekly podcast/youtube show with Deprece Reddick where we react to wrestling and pop culture. Past clients include: NBCUniversal, WhatCulture, Simian Design Group, Studio71, and HBO.
