The Cinema Squad is thrilled to welcome a new special guest for Episode #72:
Director Nick Everhart!! Let’s meet him:
Nick Everhart (@1nickeverhart )
Nick Everhart grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. He was always obsessed with movies. His Christmas presents were blank VHS tapes so he could record movies playing on TV. Through high school and college, he worked at the local movie theatre and watched everything that came out. When he wasn’t working, he was writing his own screenplays and dreaming of working in Hollywood.
When he was 21, he sold his first screenplay to an indie French production company. With big dollar signs in his eyes, he moved to Los Angeles where he began working as an unpaid Production Assistant at The Asylum.
In a year at The Asylum, he worked on 12 feature films in a myriad of roles, including writing, directing, editing, and line producing. He calls that time his “Roger Corman Experience.”
After that , he spent two years in Louisiana where he helped produce five films for the SyFy Channel. He learned a lot about Cajun food, zydeco music, and met an incredible woman who he married five years later.
In 2009, he moved to the east coast and worked in NYC for 5 years where he produced and directed a variety of projects, including the short films “Slash-In-The-Box” & “The Scout” and a segment of the horror anthology film “Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear,” produced by NBCUniversal’s Chiller Network. He also spent two years working as the in-house director for LightHouse Films where he shot commercial videos for the fashion and music industries.
In August 2014, he left NYC and moved back to Los Angeles where he’s currently developing several film and television projects.
His new thriller, “SPLITTING IMAGE,” had a limited theatrical release on October 26th, and the television rights were just acquired by A&E Networks.
His next film, “IMPOSTOR,” is currently in post-production and set for release early next year.
