After completing film programs at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and Boston University’s College of Communications, Nick Louvel worked in development at Miramax Films. He directed his first independent feature film, Domino One, while attending Harvard University, from which he graduated in 2003. He later worked in Los Angeles as the creative assistant to screenwriter Eric Warren Singer on Sony Pictures’ The International (2009).
Through his production company, SandyCape Films, Louvel freelances as a director, editor, and director of photography in New York City. He has produced content for corporate clients such as Chase Manhattan Bank and Emotional Branding Alliance. Louvel is currently in post-production on his second feature film, Never Die, a documentary about Mississippi author Barry Hannah, whom Truman Capote called “the maddest man in American letters”. He joined Film@11 in September 2011 as the editor and post-production supervisor of Haiti: Where Did the Money Go? — a documentary which premiered on PBS on January 10th, 2012.
