Independent at Heart
Nolan is focused on telling entertaining, multifaceted, and meaningful stories in his own voice. Like many independent filmmakers before him, he often writes, directs, shoots, and edits his own work. His productions have been recognized at highly selective film festivals across the country.
Nolan’s film, Diamond Game (2020), was selected to be part of some of the most established, storied, and prestigious film festivals in the U.S. and was honored with wins, including for Best Film, Direction, Cinematography, and Originality.
Previously, another of Nolan’s films, Money Bag (2018), received wins at two film festivals and was selected as one of 10 finalists for Best Cinematography at the 2018 All American High School Film Festival, which featured over 2,000 student films from around the world.
