Author Checker, Nicholas
Since 2000, Nicholas Checker has written independent films (produced through Nightshade Productions) that have been shown in cinemas and film festival across the country. "Shedim" -- an eerie supernatural piece directed by Checker was the first. It premiered at Niantic Cinemas in Niantic CT and followed with impressive festival appearances that included Yale University and the Channel Island Film Fest in Los Angeles. "The Snowman" -- a tale of a disenfranchised school teacher -- was next. It was directed by Kato McNickle, premiered at Niantic Cinemas and also had an active film fest romp. "Radio Rage" -- Checker's 2004 stab at hate radio talk shows -- was directed by SJ Williams & Becca Atkins and made a solid festival trek too, being shown at the Historic Fargo Theatre in North Dakota as the B-movie to the venerable "Doctor Strangelove" during a week of classic political films.
