Nicholas, who works out of his studio on the outskirts of London, has directed two videos for Luke Leighfield and clips for Field Music and Sam Isaac, demonstrating a flair for strong ideas and in-camera visual effects, despite being shot on minimal budgets.

Field Music's She Can Do What She Wants (pictured above) is a deceptive mirror-image performance video. Leighfield's The Rain Will Come Again being a Sledgehammer-inspired stop frame animation shot in the singer's hometown in Worcestershire, while the video for Isaac's Sideways is a tour de force of cake decoration, shot on a digital SLR.

All his videos to date have been made independently, produced by Charlie Bettice.
