Nich L. Perez
Nich L. Perez is a Filipino - American filmmaker, creative media strategist, and educator currently based in Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
He treats every film grain or pixel as sacred, allowing moments as fragments of memories to transcend through the lens as a whole, beautiful and inspired.
As an impetus to tell stories that matter, he believes that great stories empower - meaningful stories from the heart told through the lens of empathy and community.
Taking part in the Human Rights and Photography Program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in partnership with the Magnum Foundation, he collaborated with the unsheltered clients of Wards Island in New York City to tackle solutions to homelessness.
And before doing his research fellowship in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, he was an Assistant Professor in Communications and Visual Arts at Holy Cross College at Notre Dame, Indiana, and a supervising faculty at the digital arts media studio.
