Nick spent a month tracklaying for The Age of Stupid, searching through online sound libraries for the precise sound effect to match every moment. He even recreated the sound of the Iraqi kids walking through the streets of Amman (as the crew accidentally recorded it without audio) by prancing around in a specially chosen pair of flip flops. Nick won an RTS award for 'Murder Prevention' in 2005 and and was nominated for a BAFTA the same year for 'Dirty Filthy Love'. According to his IMDB profile Nick has even turned his hand to acting appearing in Mash Up (2006) and This Is What It Is (2006)
