BIOGRAPHY

ALEX NIKOLIC-DUNLOP

I’m an experienced, versatile and award winning producer director & series director who has made films for many of the major broadcasters around the world.

 

My work includes the feature length drama doc MID AIR COLLISION OVER BRITAIN for Sky 1 and the drama ESCAPE FROM AUSCHWITZ for History, which was a finalist at the New York Festival. Other credits include the observational documentary TREBLINKA: HITLER'S KILLING MACHINE for Smithsonian Channel which won a CINE Golden Eagle Award and two films for the BAFTA nominated BBC series JAMES MAY’S TOY STORIES. From high-end drama to one off specials, I tell great stories with beautiful pictures.
