Hi, my name’s Nick.

I’m a writer and broadcaster (but not on camera, I don’t have the face).

I am currently Broadcast Producer at The Spectator.

I’ve been writing for, and editing, The Clapper Bored since 2009, though it is currently on hiatus whilst I work on other projects. When I’m not bitching about movies, I was a student at the University of Oxford and talked, incessantly, about that experience on The Anglo-Saxon Diet. At Uni I was also Editor of Cherwell, Oxford University’s top student newspaper. Additionally, I wrote a monthly column for The Oxford Times about being a student. Having graduated from Oxford, I now write a blog, VeryApt.co.uk, about life after university. I produce and co-host a podcast called Bean and Gone, which reviews coffee shops around London. I’ve written freelance for various publications, including VICE, New Statesman, Spectator and Prospect.

I am also a filmmaker (shock horror) who has made a bunch of short films and my first feature, The Flight of the Flamingo, in 2012. As a screenwriter, I have had scripts developed and produced in both the UK and the US.  Yeah, I like to keep myself busy. Since 2015 I have worked primarily on web-series: the first, The Magic Circle, was a comedy about adult Harry Potter fans, and, more recently, I’ve been releasing Spadsa political satire. Spads has been featured in the Evening Standard, New Statesman and on BBC Radio 5Live.

I founded and run Establishing Shots, a London filmmaking collaborative and meet-up group with hundreds of members. Do check us out and get involved!

If you’ve got any general questions, queries, desires, dilemmas…etc, then just drop me an email at nick@theclapperbored.com or click here.

Additionally, that’s the place you should email me if you want to commission any sort of writing or film work. I like to get paid for things but, at the same time, I am always willing to get involved in a good project for free.

Beggars can’t be choosers, right?
