Nick Whitfield grew up in the Fens in the East of England.
Nick started his career as a professional actor, mainly in touring theatre, later studying comedy and drama with French theatre legend Philippe Gaulier in Paris.
He began writing his own one-man shows with Wes Williams, which played all over the UK and Ireland, including at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Their show ROADMOVIE was recently staged in a Portuguese translation in São Paulo, Brazil.
This stage work attracted the interest of the film community and they developed a screen adaptation (as yet unmade) of their stage play Albert Camus – What’s the Score?
Nick directed his self-financed debut short, Skeletons and followed with Rebecca, supported by EM Media, which screened at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
2010 saw the release of Nick’s first feature film, Skeletons. It won the Michael Powell Award at Edinburgh, played at festivals all around the world including SXSW in Austin, Rotterdam, Chicago, Seattle, Taipei, Adelaide and many more. Nick was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Debut.
He currently has two more features in development.
