Co-founder and head of the American division of Blitz Films, Nikolay "Nick" Sarkisov had completed his studies to become a surgeon in Russia, when he decided to change career paths and pursue his passion for entertainment.
Nick began working with an independent television producer, Evan Charnov ("Chosen", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") to hone his knowledge.
Nick made his feature directorial debut on KRASNY, which went on to receive accolades throughout Russia. Building a solid reputation, Nick was contacted by the STS Channel in Russia to direct an episode of their TV series – "The Moon". After just one episode, he was asked to direct the entire series. To date, 30 episodes have been ordered.
Working with Academy Award winning talent throughout Europe, Nick will be making his American directorial debut in October 2018 with a script written by critically acclaimed writer David McKenna ("American History X", "Blow" "S.W.A.T").
