electriclimefilms has announced that Los Angeles-based director Nicholas Lam will be joining their roster.
Upon graduating from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Lam has gone on to direct international campaigns for global brands such as Google, Samsung, and Disney; working closely with BBDO, Ogilvy & Mather, and Iris Worldwide. As an MTV VMA nominated director, he has shot videos for Nick Jonas, Blink-182, Bastille, Monsta X, and more.
“While I’ve always practiced my craft whenever possible, I only took the leap of faith and plunged into directing as a full-time career a handful of years ago,” said Lam.
The director’s favorite parts about the filmmaking process are the shoot, edit, and color grading.
“These phases are interlinked — you are always told to shoot for the edit, but when you can envisage the mood you’re going for in the grade, that likewise informs your cinematographic decisions,” said Lam. “The edit is the final rewrite, the color grade is the final brush stroke, but the shoot is where you unearth your gems.”
Lam ultimately draws his inspirations from life, being a compassionate human who gives back whenever possible and immersing himself in everything he can to become a better director.
“Through the sieve of life, what matters most to you will find its way to your heart,” said Lam.
“Everything else will fall into its rightful place.”
