You can make a movie anywhere in the world, with people from all over the world, thanks to modern technology. Don’t go to Hollywood waiting for someone to recognize your potential. Make Hollywood opportunities come to you by showing people what you can do. Always remember the splendor of filmmaking in your heart, and you are guaranteed success.

A film’s music is of equal importance to me as the film itself. You should ‘hear’ the film’s plot when you listen to a score.

Publishing Rights Organization

All of my music, including my collaborations with others, is published through BMI under my own Cinemat Nic Music.

 
I have been lucky to profile the greatest people you could ever wish to meet in my articles. Print journalism is important to me because we should strive for careers in which what we look like is irrelevant. My work is about sharing experiences with people like me: fans of filmmaking curious for learning more.
