Nick Bain

A creative professional with more than ten years in the Film/Media industries, Educational Consultancy and research, I have built a career as an expert in script, story content development and producing. I have worked in many different international territories and have an intimate understanding of the creative process. My first Hollywood feature film (Associate Producer and script development) The Man Who Knew Infinity was released in 2016.

As an independent screenwriter I have developed projects with companies including Weinstein Europe, Warner Brothers, Universal, Pressman Films, Animus, FCCE, ITV Bigtalk and many others, yielding a small number of screen credits for completed projects. I have also run my own small production company Threepunk Productions producing high quality short material.

As a university lecturer and education consultant, I have devised and lectured on new screenwriting courses for the University of Greenwich London. Taught up to Masters level. I have also recently delivered masterclasses in story and narrative structure for the Mulholland Film Academy, Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam.
