    Make Your Show - The Creators - Nick Psinakis

    In our fifth episode of "Make Your Show: The Creators", we sat down with Nick Psinakis. Nick is an actor, writer and director from Long Island, NY. After graduating from The University of Delaware with a major in Visual Arts, Nick attended the conservatory acting program at the William Esper Studio in New York City where he studied the highly recognized work of Sanford Meisner and studied under William Esper, Joel Rooks and Terry Knickerbocker.

         
    Nick, along with his writing partner Kevin Ignatius, formed Four Eighteen Films, a production company committed to conceptualizing and developing low-cost, high quality, independently produced films and television. “Four Eighteen” stems from the birthday they both share, April 18th.  Despite talking almost every day, it took them over three years to realize this. 

       

    In 2011, they wrote, acted and produced the short film The Adoption Agency in conjunction with FunnyOrDie starring Rex Lee ("Entourage", "Young & Hungry").  In addition to garnering much attention on the website, the film opened the 2011 LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival, won the 2011 Christopher Wetzel Award for Independent Comedy and was an Official Selection for the 2011 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in both Chicago and Montreal respectively.



    Since then Four Eighteen Films has produced countless music videos, short films and pilot presentations. Their most recent feature film, "My Best Friend’s Famous", is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play and Tubi TV.
