Nick Wenger is a writer, director and editor currently living in Los Angeles.
He earned his bachelor’s degree at UCLA, where he majored in Psychology, but spent most of his time working for the school’s closed-circuit TV station. He later attended USC’s renowned School of Cinematic Arts, where he earned his MFA.
After school, he focused his attention on commercials. Working with MoFilm Agency out of the UK, he directed prize-winning content for Chevrolet, Durex, Johnny Walker, KPMG, and others. His work was honored at the World Cup in Sao Paulo and at the Cannes Lions Festival. He has been the recipient of the Panavision New Filmmaker Award, the W3 Award and the Communicator Award.
Nick recently dipped his toe into directing television, helming the live-action segments for the wacky kids’ show Mack & Moxy, which airs on PBS networks and streams on Netflix. He was lucky to work with some amazing guest stars, including Keegan-Michael Key, Kal Penn, Matt Lucas and Jim Carrey.
He has worked as an editor for Hulu’s Behind the Mask, Netflix’s Bad Samaritans, and the unscripted program Wonder Women for Hallmark Channel, which won the Emmy Award for outstanding Travel & Adventure Program in 2017. He has edited commercials and branded content for a long list of clients, including RSA/Cornetto’s “Cupidity” campaign which won the Silver Lion.
In 2018, Nick directed a short film called The Kid, which is hitting the festival circuit now. It’s a sci-fi action piece that serves as a proof-of-concept for an exciting feature that he’s currently writing.
He spends his free time reading Wikipedia articles, playing accordion, and painting along with Bob Ross.
