Summary

Nolan Roy is a filmmaker from Brooklyn, NY. His passion for film lie's in cinematography. The art of the light and its manipulation to convey emotion is what Roy call a ‘superior art form second music alone.' As passionate as he is for cinematography, Roy believes in one thing... “A cool camera trick or a beautiful lighting setup is wonderful, but if it doesn’t mean anything than what’s the point? A good message will find its way through the dark on a cellphone camera. Story over everything.”
