During his nearly two decades in the New York TV/Film production business, Nick Catania has directed several documentaries depicting street-skating culture and underground skateboard races in New York City, including Broadway Bomb, an award-winning documentary about the now legendary underground NYC street-skating race of the same name. He recently directed a music video for the Seattle-based band Swedish Legal System, in which the band relishes the objectification they experience while performing for a crowd of lusty groupies on the business side of an all night peep show booth.
Nick was the Director of Photography for the soon to be released To Them That's Gone, a feature-length documentary chronicling the trials and triumphs of a team of runners who ran coast to coast across the United States honoring each soldier killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom with an individually marked memorial mile. This thread of continuous pavement was an emotional non-political recognition of the extraordinary sacrifices made by US servicemen and their families. The grueling 11-week shoot delivered production challenges ranging from a 120-degree desert heat-wave to rockslides in the Rocky Mountains, and violent lightning storms in the great plains. He is currently directing Boarders Without Borders, a documentary that follows three American snowboarders to the mountains of Iran.
Nick continues to work for outside clients ranging from independent producers to studio-backed productions. He operates from his home in New York, but is often on the road, combining his passion for music, action sports and the outdoors; thinking in pictures, capturing the essence of the moment and bringing it to the screen.
Brian Sachson has been involved in the film and television business in New York City for the past 10 years. He has worked in production on some of the biggest features, television shows and commercials to come through the city, including Law and Order, Fringe, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Date Night, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
In recent years Brian has begun producing and directing his own projects, consisting mostly of commercials and corporate spots, and has several feature-length documentaries that are currently in development. He was one of the co-stars of the IFC web series Funnel of Darkness, and for three years was the editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Hook, a New York City based magazine that focused on music, culture and politics. He is currently producing the documentary Boarders Without Borders, a film that follows three American snowboarders to the mountains of Iran. The film has just begun principal photography.
Brian's extensive experience traveling around the world and his passion for production has been instrumental in developing his creativity. He strongly believes that filmmaking and the shared passions of individuals can bring people together and solve even the most daunting global problems.
