Nic Barker is a prolific and multi-talented filmmaker in Australia, responsible for over thirty narrative shorts and the 2017 feature film, "SHORT DISTANCE”.

Jumping between traditional scripted narrative and more freeform, improvised storytelling, Nic’s actor-first approach has yielded significant acclaim for the short films “PINT”, “DEAD SHARKS” and “TECH, SUPPORT”. These films are characterised by dark, sometimes painfully awkward comedy, an intense focus on naturalism and sharp, dynamic editing, all of which contribute to an ever evolving storytelling style.

He is currently completing his latest short film “CHEAPSKATE”, and has multiple projects in development.
