A peripatetic sucker for inspiration.
Nich Perez is a Filipino - American filmmaker, creative strategist, and educator based in Austin, TX, and Los Angeles, CA.
With the impetus to tell stories that matter, he treats every film grain or pixel as sacred, creating media that transcend through the lens as a whole, rendering beauty, inspiration, and authenticity in its evolving media landscape.  
He believes that great stories empower, told through the lens of empathy and community. To advocate for the homeless and practice social justice through media, he took part in the Human Rights and Photography Program at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University with the Magnum Foundation. He had the honor to collaborate with the unsheltered clients of Wards Island in New York City in 2014. 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, IN, where he also served as the director of the digital arts studio.
 
With 15 years of experience in filmmaking, creative strategy, and education, his work in the development of mission-driven media, effective communications, and documentaries intersect with creativity, philosophy, mental wellness, and service-learning through media arts and practice.
Many of his media projects were in numerous international film festivals and exhibitions, including (In)Justice For All, the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, and Flicker’s Rhode Island Film Festival.  In collaboration with multiple non-profit organizations, his extensive mission-driven media work supports their causes in print to emerging media.
He hopes to continue to share this passion for transforming hearts and minds through powerful stories and meaningful projects, one pixel at a time.
