Nicholas L Price


Public bio

Nicholas has worked across the documentary genre, gathering extensive production experience with some of the most successful television production companies, including National Geographic in Washington, D.C. This comes after having first started as an assistant in the independent documentary film industry. He has worked with award winning filmmakers and production houses such as Academy Award Nominee David Petersen, Emmy-winning Kartemquin films and Al Jazeera America.

Nicholas has an extensive and diverse individual portfolio as well, working as an assistant editor for Meridian Hill Pictures and also the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies department at Georgetown University. In 2014, he was the sole audiovisual coordinator at Politics & Prose bookstore working to film and edit over 400 author events per year, to develop multimedia content, and to help share the stories of D.C.’s literary community, culminating in a short documentary film produced for the store’s 30th anniversary. He continues freelancing, both in visual and written journalism and has contributed to the likes of CityLab for Atlantic Media.

A native of Birmingham, Ala. Nicholas graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in May 2013, with a degree in International Studies & Linguistics and Film studies. As an undergraduate, he began his documentary work through UAB’s Media Studies program and later studied with the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Communications Digital Production and Storytelling program in Dubai on a William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship. His overarching goal is to publish stories that prompt the audience to ask for more, to self-educate. His films span even more of the documentary genre from environmental exposé with the Southern Environmental Law Center to Birmingham-rooted civil rights history.

Currently, he is pursuing personal projects and the life of a digital nomad in Southeast Asia. His film and academic interests include architecture, urbanism, and sustainability for people and place. He is also endangered language enthusiast who ultimately aims to tell the stories of speakers behind vanishing languages and cultures.
