I make films, theatre productions and multimedia installations for business and pleasure. I'm based in the UK as a freelance director and operate a creative enterprise, 'Nik Morris Associates', producing media content for entertainment and promotion, and offering startup companies and sciences & humanities researchers ways to showcase their achievements.
I believe in forming strong relationships with clients in order to discover and share the passion behind their businesses and projects, and communicate this in creative media outputs. As a director and writer I am obsessed with storytelling, developing dramatic images and performances, and creating work that reflects life's dynamic range of emotion and humour. In particular, I value collaboration with actors and other creative professionals, striving to learn about their respective crafts in order to better communicate as we produce work.
