FOUNDER - BFA(Hon.) York University
Hi, my name is Andrew Nisker, and I make films to inspire people to take action and revolutionize the way we treat the environment and ourselves.
My mentor, the late Bob Hunter (Co-Founder of Greenpeace), said that “The revolution starts at home.”
Taking Bob’s words to heart, I founded Take Action Films and set out to make films that could help make environmentalism more accessible. Over the last ten years I’ve written, directed, and produced almost a dozen feature documentaries with a focus on social-environmental issues.
I’ve made a bunch of appearances in the media to share the message, featured on CBC News, MTV, and in pieces by The Atlantic, Now Magazine, POV Magazine, The Beam, Samaritan Magazine, and The Hollywood Reporter. In 2014, I was even lucky enough to get invited to hold my own TEDx Talk at the University of Toronto to share my efforts in “making the invisible visible.”
CREATIVE PRODUCER - BFA(Hon.) Toronto Metropolitan University
Iain is a 2001 honors graduate of Toronto Metropolitan University where his focus in film school was on cinematography and motion graphic design.
He is a total nerd when it comes to emerging media formats, motion graphics, editing techniques, digital filmmaking, online video and interactive mobile content. Over the last 23 years Iain has filmed and edited hundreds of projects including feature documentaries, music videos, commercials, industrial videos and animations.
He has worked with Andrew for over 10 years shooting all of his movies since then.
Above all, Iain loves to film in crazy environments. From the top of mountains to the bottom of oceans, and his keen eye as a DOP has earned him recognition from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers, Technicolour Canada and William F. White.
