Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

Nick studied Lighting Design at WAAPA in the late 90's. Since then he's had a career involving Lighting Design and all aspects of film-making.

He now lives in the NW of Tasmania and has started a small production company with a view to making small films locally. 

He's able to take on the entire package or be involved as part of the team.

He has a camera and equipment sufficient for a small production company. Other, more specialised equipment (e.g. a Drone) is hired in as necessary.
