FilmDayton’s March Film Connections: Andy Nick from Real Art
March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
How to bite off more than you can chew
About The Speaker
Andy Nick comes in the front door with over 15 years of experience as a professional graphic designer, 10 years of experience making videos, zero years in the film industry, and (some might say) absolutely no business calling himself a “video professional”. But, having been trusted by some of the biggest brands (GE, Lowe’s, Coca-Cola, FIFA World Cup) to direct films, campaigns and world-wide experiences, Andy has no problem putting his money where his mouth is when it comes to sharing the juicy details of sinking your teeth into tough projects.
NickAD Historically Accurate Autobiography
From EGA to 8K, 8-bit to 8 terrabit, there’s no resolution too low or pixel pitch too high. Raised on DOS prompts and ANCII-art, ‘Nick, Andrew David’ acquired a “deep and meaningful appreciation for the pixel” at age 4.
Years of rigorous video game research and a self-education of early flash development led young NickAD to pursue higher education in the emerging field of Theoretical Pixology at the University of Dayton. However, during his doctoral studies he found himself falling in love with the more traditional art of graphic design. Conflict began to grow, and a great war of mediums waged within him.
Nearing graduation, NickAD was introduced to the world of motion design and digital video. This had a profound effect, fusing his love for graphic design and storytelling with animation and motion graphics. And thus, in 2002, the quadforce of Andy’s professional career was born.
Dr. Andrew Nick, PH.D. found like-minded creatives at multi-disciplinary design firm Real Art, where he has enjoyed gainful employment and professional sharpening since 2004. He currently acts as a designer, director and studio team lead, constantly pursuing the fusion of traditional design and new media for the betterment of the human race.
