Nick Fullen-Collins got his start in Hollywood working as a Production Coordinator for Martin Lawrence’s successful comedy tour, Doin’ Time. Upon finishing the tour, Nick transitioned into working under the President and CEO of Queen Latifah’s production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment. During that time, Nick worked on the successful show, Single Ladies on VH1, as well as the critically acclaimed and Emmy award winning HBO film, Bessie, which starred Queen Latifah. Most recently, Nick worked at HBO in various departments, including the drama department, in which he worked for the Vice President who oversaw, Game of Thrones and Young Pope. In addition he also worked in the Talent/Development department, helping to manage and coordinate the 2015/2016 HBO Access writers and directors program. During his time at HBO, Nick realized his true passion was working with emerging writers and directors, as well as helping diverse talent from people of color, and women who often struggle for fair opportunities within the industry. In January 2017, Nick took a leap of faith and left HBO to launch his own production company, Artistic Vision Entertainment, in which he plans to acquire, develop, and produce television and film projects. The meaning behind the company is to always strive to create content with “artistic” value, that has a clear vision. Currently, Nick is developing 4 television/filmprojects; two of these projects include: A Latin American family drama, and a sports documentary series that will feature future hall fame athletes training/competing during the offseason. In addition to developing film and television projects, Nick serves as a writing Consultant, in which he helps discover and mentor emerging writers, and also assists in acquiring representation for their projects. As of now, Nick has helped five writers over the last year and a half attain representation and/or funding for their projects.
