Director Biography - Nathan Ellis

Growing up outside Boston in a family of five children, Nathan has always had a strong creative drive. Ever since he was a young child, Nathan has been creating his own stories, characters, music and films. Developing strong interests in both filmmaking and aviation, Nathan decided he could work with both.

After graduating from college at the top of his class and being ranked as the number-one ROTC cadet nationwide selected for the US Army Aviation Branch, Nathan served seven years
active duty service as a helicopter pilot, having deployed into combat operations in Afghanistan. While in service, Nathan gained unparalleled life experience and excelled as a leader, receiving such accolades as the Bronze Star and an Air Medal with Valor.

Nathan recently received his MFA in Film Production from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and currently holds the rights and has a completed screenplay for the best-selling book "Chickenhawk" -- the memoirs of a Vietnam helicopter pilot, along with several other original military-themed screenplays.
