Before graduating, his work as a director had earned him a Royal Television Society Award for Dancing In The Ashes, a nomination for Best Short Film at the Sundance Film Festival for Out Of Sight and a nomination for Best Short Film at the BAFTA’s and the BIFA’s for Slap. Before Nick committed to film, he also had a promising rally driving career. He was selected for the prestigious MSA British Rally Academy, before competing in the Chinese and British Rally Championships. This experience fed into the making of his last short, Group B, which earned Nick a Student Oscar nomination. Since the NFTS, Nick directed episodes of Cuffs, Ripper Street and Hard Sun for BBC One. Nick’s debut Feature film, Calm With Horses, premiered at TIFF 2019 and went on to be nominated for the Sutherland award at the 2019 BFI London Film Festival, before its general theatrical release in 2020.
