NIK KACEVSKI - WRITER/DIRECTOR
Nik Kacevski is a writer and director working in film and television.
Originally from Macedonia, he grew up in Sydney Australia where he attended the prestigious University of Sydney completing a Master Degree in Design Science and receiving a Deans’ List of Academic Excellence.
His early career began in Visual Effects and Animation, working through the top animation and VFX companies in Australia, such as Animal Logic, Fuel VFX and Dr.D Studios. This gave Nik the opportunity to work with directors like George Miller on high-end feature films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Happy Feet 2, Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, Gods of Egypt, Underworld: Blood Wars and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
His early directing career began with short films and music videos with his first short film DYING ICE, a fantasy sci-fi drama, being selected at the International New York Film Festival and the recently Oscar Accredited Hollyshorts Film Festival. His follow up short film 8:47, a one-take time travel sci-fi, was selected at the Fantasia Film Festival and received an Honourable Mention at Hollyshorts Film Festival in 2013.
In 2017, Nik wrote and directed his feature-length debut SKINFORD. It picked up a myriad of nominations and awards across the international festival circuit for best director, best cinematography, best sound, best music, and best visual effects. It premiered on VICELAND in the US and is currently streaming internationally on the BLACKPILLS platform.
Nik was chosen to participate in The Warner Brothers Emerging Filmmakers program as a writer, having his science fiction script SENSUM produced and released on HBO GO and HBO NOW. He went on to work with Peter Dinklage’s production company Estuary Films, where he was involved with developing an in-house sci-fi drama series.
Nik just finished working on his latest project, SKINFORD: CHAPTER TWO, which was theatrically distributed in theatres across Australia and is also due to be released on the Blackpills platform in 2019. He is attached to direct a Science Fiction drama later in the year, produced by Phoenix Pictures and Deeper Water Films, and is in development on several film and television projects that strive to push creative and technical boundaries.
