“COAST” – When Patasha is called upon to make a routine delivery to a young tourist couple, she encounters a situation that will test her morality. The young spear-fisherman Samson also wants to make a transaction, but this one is of a more sinister nature. Coast is an examination of choices, and how ugly or stunningly beautiful this island can truly be.
Driven by the desire to showcase the good, bad and ugly elements of his diverse Jamaican homeland, Nile decided to pursue filmmaking at an early age. He moved to Los Angeles in 2001, where he studied the introduction to filmmaking. He embarked on a 3 year stint in the US, moving also to Miami and New York where he furthered his film education by working on sets. He also worked as the Asset Manager for RES magazine and the world famous RESfest.
In 2004, Nile traveled to London where he received formal training with the New York Film Academy, focusing on writing and directing.
Upon returning to Kingston, where he’s currently based, Nile jumped straight into film production, working in various capacities such as Assistant Director, Second Unit Director and Director of Photography on several projects.
To date he has written and directed several short films, and also does commercial work such as editing and directing commercials, short documentaries and music videos. He’s currently finishing up his first feature film script and has a slew of video art projects lined up.
