My story here


Nick J. Santore is an LA-based filmmaker and designer who was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago. When he was 6, his family moved to Arizona where he spent the first half of his adolescence before returning to his hometown. His upbringing inspired a successful run producing coming-of-age short films in Chicago, most notably the documentary NICK SANTORE (CIFF 2015, Vimeo Staff Pick), which examines his own father-son relationship. While in Chicago, he co-founded a production company where he worked as an executive producer on multi-platform projects including films for brands such as Jordan, Uber, Wrangler and Intel.

His latest documentary short MY DUDUŚ (Producer) debuted at SXSW and was recently acquired by POV Shorts (Season 5) on PBS.

Nick’s primary objective is to continue developing and producing projects that explore the themes of human spirituality, lineage, and tradition.
