Juried Show Judge Nick BERDEN

Fifteen year old Nick Berden the First Place Winner in last year's film showcase comes back this year as the Judge for the 2018 Arts Alive! Student Film Showcase.  Last summer, Berden partnered with Producer Steve Barney to shoot and edit Magnolia Bayou: Bay St. Louis’ Hidden Watershed. This documentary short film highlights the impact that upsurge in development is having on Bay St. Louis’ fragile riparian ecosystem.  The video has received more than 100 views on youtube and has received widespread recognition from the local media and federal agencies.    

ARTIST STATEMENT  I'm a self taught cinematographer, photographer, and editor. I am based out of South Mississippi, and travel to New Orleans for jobs. I started making youtube videos at the age of 9, at the age of 14 I self produced a short film and got invited to a film showcase that month. I like to focus on the work and making the client comfortable and as stress free as possible. In the creative field that I work in I like to focus on the elements and principles that produce the best product possible.
