Nick Coleman is a writer/director/producer/editor who has been making short films in the Greater Sacramento Area for the better part of a decade. In 2016, his short film Happy Accidents won Producer’s Choice at A Place Called Sacramento Film Festival. Made with Comedy Spot talent behind and in front of the camera, Happy Accidents went on to make the top ten in a national short film competition put on by Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Network called Just For Laughs Eat My Shorts.
Nick is also an award-winning screenwriter who won 2nd place in Cinequest’s Screenwriting Competition in 2017 for his short comedy script Flop, and ever since he’s been a reader for their yearly screenwriting competition, as well as a writer for the Cinequest Film Festival Guide. He’s also been a regular finalist in NYC Midnight’s Short Screenplay Challenge for the past few years, placing as high as 4th place out of thousands of writers. Scriptapalooza, Screencraft, and WeScreenplay are a few more fancy contests where he made the finals.
He also operates Nick Coleman Media as a professional editor who dabbles heavily in the post-production arts. From location audio to color grading, Nick is jack of all movie trades who often helps out other filmmakers and has a desire to lift up new ones because he believes communism in filmmaking is a good thing
When he’s not making movies, he eats, drinks, and sleeps film theory and consumes everything he can about the business side. His ultimate goal is to pull the comedy genre out of its current dire state and push it into the next epoch. He can’t do it alone. He needs an army. And he wants you.
Nick is a video and film instructor at the Comedy Spot.
