Award winning film director/copywriter Nic Penrake has written, produced and directed four commercials and ten original shorts, many of which have been screened at festivals, streamed online and on cable TV.
His latest shorts -- BUNKING OFF and THE PROWLER - are distributed by Shorts International. The Prowler was successfully entered to Newport Beach Festival and Cannes 2013.
"Bunking Off is an exemplary take on social-realist melodrama, which skilfully combines pathos, sexuality and humour to fully engage an audience. Nic demonstrated an absolutely sure hand at every stage, from casting to collaboration with an A-List composer." Richard Kwietniowski (Director: Owning Mahoney and Love and Death On Long Island)
Together with Film Engine's Phil Taylor, Nic is producing and directing his own script BURNING, a script that made it into the last 8 of the Micro Budget Fund 2011, and is close to being financed through SEIS private investment. Nic is also attached as writer/director/producer for his feature based on Bunking Off, entitled WHEN THE MONEY RUNS OUT.
More recently Nic has been working on a half hour documentary on people trafficking.
