Nick Pollack is an award winning director based in Sydney. He has been directing since 2004 & working in the industry since 1999. He conceives, directs and edits across all multimedia platforms, whilst maintaining a strong tie to traditional film-making via commercials, short films, documentaries & music videos.
He is currently developing several feature films through the assistance of Screen Australia and Create NSW. One of these projects “Any Girl Who Loves The Beatles Is Bound To Break Your Heart”, based on Nick’s first novel, was recently selected by Warner Bros Pictures as one of the 10 best Australian screenplays of the year.
His latest short film ‘And Though The Music Ended, We Danced On Through The Night', co-written with Ryan Hayward, and produced with Aaron Bush and Marisa Zamora, premiered at the Napa Valley Film Festival in California in November 2017. He has also won awards for his previous short film 'The Full Gamut' at several local film festivals.
He has won an Australian Director's Guild award for a Unilever/Continental campaign, beating an Emmy nominated program in the process.

PEOPLE SAY THE NICEST THINGS
(Nick's team) exceeded our expectations with their professionalism, creativity, efficiency and patience. I personally learnt so much and it has validated the importance of ‘bringing the professionals in’. Sally and I appreciate the expenditure, time and belief in this powerful medium which will provide the return of investment the Visa Claims Resolution project requires for adoption and success.

What the video did was gave them a window into the heart and soul of the business, and I actually think they were quite touched and inspired by it... (The new owners said) "What really shines through so strongly here is the incredible sense of pride and commitment and heart, at a level which we honestly have never seen in any other business that we’ve acquired.” And I KNOW it was the video that gave them that impression. Thanks for your hard work. It definitely paid off for us.
