FACULTY: Charles Nuckolls

Producer, Writer, Director

I tell stories. I tell them with the language of film and theatre. I am drawn to each discipline and intersections where the two forms converge.

As artists we have agency and ability to be advocates of cultural change, create discourse about crucial issues that define our day and be a reflection of the ways in which we collectively construct the human condition.

My theatre is often rooted in true events and deals with challenging themes; it can be dark and uncomfortable.

My films depict representations of how we treat one another, good and bad, and say things that usually go unsaid, even if often thought about.

My personal mantra: “I believe in the possibility of what has yet to exist, what will I create today?” I never know what that will be; I never have an expectation beyond the effort I know I must exert to make anything I can stand upon.
