Colour, light, movement and sound; each can engage viewers on such an emotional level. Every day we employ all those elements to tell a new story and I love it.
Nik joined the WildBear team as a director in 2008 after graduating with a Degree in Digital Arts from the Australian National University where he specialised in digital video and animation. Since then he has directed a wide variety of content – ranging from television commercials and corporate videos to full-length documentaries and vibrant short films. Recent projects include the documentary Monsters in the Outback (2013, Flame Distribution) which incorporated live action photography, animation and photo-real CG creations). Another highlight is the dramatic web serial #GameOn (2014, Australian Communications and Media Authority) that was simultaneously webcast to schoolchildren across the country. Nik has also directed and designed video content for over four years for youth dance group Quantum Leap, incorporating advertising and artistic video projections played as part of each performance. Nik continues to work as a full-time commercial director whilst independently developing new ideas across a wide variety of mediums.
