Welcome to my online portfolio.
My name is Nicholas Claxton, and I’ve been at the forefront of many multi-media businesses spanning TV, Film and Publishing.
In my career I’ve been lucky to have worked with so many talented and extraordinary people and it’s my hope that some of these highlights of my work will be of interest and inspiration to others.
My abiding watch-word is never accept no for an answer!
For the past year I’ve been working with a colleague, the multi award-wining producer and writer Nick Gillott [recipient of a BAFTA award, two Golden Globe awards and three Emmy nominations] on a powerful Holocaust film.
The script [Working title – THE TELEGRAM] is based on a real life story and is a strong sequel to his film CONSPIRACY.
This is a fascinating and highly powerful behind the scenes, largely untold story that’s not only universal in terms of its appeal, but one that has highly contemporary overtones today.
We’re currently looking for major investors in the USA and Europe for this film, which I will Produce and Nick Gillott will be an Executive Producer.
The Director is yet to be announced.
