Phoenix-based writer/director Nathan Blackwell has made over forty short films, two features, co-created the web series ‘Voyage Trekkers’, and has won a bunch of awards for filmmaking (…but only one had a cash prize).
His day job is a full-time freelance director and editor, for which he recently took home six ADDYs for directing commercial and branded content. He was also named one of Phoenix’s 100 Creatives by the Phoenix New Times.
In 2007 Nathan created Squishy Studios (with co-founder Craig Curtis) to pursue his passion of making fun and outlandish genre comedy. Their work has featured such characters as the worst starship crew in the galaxy, a gentleman super spy, a rectal-probing alien, evil space lizard men, a nazi commander who gets his face melted off, a failed suburban mad scientist, melodramatic role-playing nerds, ninjas, an angst-ridden teenage girl who can cast magic, and (naturally) zombies.
Nathan also co-hosts The Most Excellent 80’s Movie Podcast, which can be found at this link here, or wherever fine podcasts are served.
