DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Nicholas M. Robbins’ formal training in production started with three semesters of undergraduate film work at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Having established a solid understanding of the practical aspects of production, he moved on to pursue a more liberal curriculum at Cornell University. In 1997, he graduated with a degree in Philosophy and a minor in Cognitive Science.
After a short stint of travel abroad, he reentered the film world: this time in the freelance production community in Boston. After a few years of developing his network and his craft, he turned his efforts towards his first feature project, Anathema.
