ABOUT NOLAN

NOLAN DEAN is a writer, director and producer with a passion for captivating his audiences with stories that confront the deceit, pain and sorrow of the human experience with undeniable truth, beauty and goodness. In his ten years of professional experience, Nolan has entertained audiences with films of all types and subject matters, bringing audiences to both laughter and tears, to gasps as well as cheers. Our production company provides the organizational framework necessary to support his craft and clientele.

We opened our doors in 2009 with Nolan's first feature documentary, Malatya - a human rights expose in Turkey that explored the controversial murder of three men in Eastern Turkey, and the aftershocks experienced by their small Christian community. Despite its shoestring budget, Malatya sold over 12,000 DVDs and aired on cable networks across 5 continents. After the release of Malatya, we opened our doors to non-profits, and subsequently produced a host of short documentaries, promotional videos and media projects that have raised over $2,500,000 for efforts in Arkansas, Texas, India, Haiti, Nigeria, Guatemala, and Rwanda.

With 100 projects under his belt, Nolan turned his attention back to the cinema, and produced a short screwball romantic comedy called Last Shot Love, which received rave reviews from audiences, critics and producers across the entertainment industry. Due to the audience's demand for more, Nolan adapted the short film into a feature script which has been described by one sales agent as "the best script in the romantic comedy genre currently on the market.”

Currently, Nolan is producing and directing the Last Shot Love feature film, co-producing other films through a film financing venture known as Empire Media Partners, writing his next two screenplays, and continuing his work with select clients who are doing great work in the world. 

Nolan lives in Helena, a cool little delta town, with his wife Jackie and daughter Arwen, where they hang out with friends, mentor teens, and keep life simple.

Nolan is one of the smartest, most earnest, most focused, most un-rattle-able filmmakers I know. He has an uncanny knack for having everything planned, and running a large set effeciently and smoothly, but remaining calmly and patiently open to the moment. His motivations are pure, his skill is formidable and impressive, his passion is palpable. What else could you want?
