Hi, my name is Nicholas Wenger and I'm a writer-director currently living in Los Angeles.
I earned my MFA at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, and I was born in Montreal so I've got a Canadian citizenship, which can be useful for employment or fleeing the country.
Fresh out of school, I focused my attention on commercials. Working with MoFilm Agency, I directed prize-winning content for Chevrolet, Durex, Johnny Walker, KPMG, and others. My work has been honored at the World Cup in Sao Paulo and at the Cannes Lions Festival, and I am the proud recipient of the Panavision New Filmmaker Award, the W3 Award and the Communicator Award.
I recently dipped my toe into directing television, helming the live-action segments for the wacky kids’ show Mack & Moxy, which airs on PBS networks and streams on Netflix. I was lucky to work with some amazing guest stars, including Keegan-Michael Key, Kal Penn, Matt Lucas and Jim Carrey.
I've got a background in post production, and I've worked as an editor on Amazon’s Goliath, ABC’s Bless This Mess, and the unscripted program Wonder Women for Hallmark Channel, which won the Emmy Award for outstanding Travel & Adventure Program.
My short film The Kid, saw success on the festival circuit before being featured on DUST (Gunpowder & Sky), Amazon Prime and DirecTV’s ShortsHD channel. It’s a sci-fi action piece that serves as a proof-of-concept for a feature that I'm currently developing.
In my free time, you'll find me reading Wikipedia articles, playing accordion, and painting along with Bob Ross.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to reach out!
