Before founding Good Time, he had worked on the release of more than 500 feature and documentary films in various forms. He has played a significant role in assessing scripts, treatments and rough cuts with a view to acquiring the films for distribution in Australia and New Zealand. He has produced a range of critically acclaimed and award-winning films, both narrative and documentary. Most recently Nick produced feature documentaries from Australia and New Zealand including All for One , Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy and Spookers, A Month of Sundays starring Anthony LaPaglia all in 2017, and Damon Gameau’s That Sugar Film (2014), which is the highest-grossing non-IMAX Australian documentary of all time. He won an AACTA Award for that film and produced Gameau’s follow-up, 2040, which premiered at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival. He received his first APSA nomination for The Australian Dream about the Adam Goodes race saga in Australian football.
