Nicholas Wenger is a director currently living in Los Angeles. He earned his MFA at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, and he has Canadian citizenship which can be useful for employment or fleeing the country.
Fresh out of school, he focused his attention on commercials. Working with MoFilm Agency, he directed prize-winning content for Chevrolet, Durex, Johnny Walker, KPMG, and others. His work has been honored at the World Cup in Sao Paulo and at the Cannes Lions Festival, and he is the proud recipient of the Panavision New Filmmaker Award, the W3 Award and the Communicator Award.
He recently dipped his toe into directing television, helming the live-action segments for the kids’ show Mack & Moxy, which airs on PBS networks and streams on Netflix. He's had the honor of working with A-list talent including Keegan-Michael Key, Susan Sarandon, Kal Penn, Rachael Ray and Jim Carrey.
Nicholas has a strong background in post production, having 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.
His short film The Kid, saw success on the festival circuit before being featured on Amazon Prime and DirecTV’s ShortsHD channel. It was picked up by DUST (Gunpowder & Sky), where it recently became their most popular stand-alone film on Facebook, with 45M+ views. It’s a sci-fi action piece that serves as a proof-of-concept for a feature that he's currently developing.
In his free time, he enjoys reading Wikipedia articles, playing accordion, and painting along with Bob Ross.
