Occulus Films is a family-owned business started by two brothers with a shared passion for storytelling, especially through the medium of film and video.

WHO WE ARE
When Nick went to military school, and Dominic travelled the world as a hip-hop dancer, neither lost their love for movies and filmmaking.
What started as a couple brothers running around the yard making YouTube videos became something more.
Started by two brothers with a shared passion for storytelling, Occulus Films helps clients attract and convert people from curious visitors into paying (or donating) customers - using the skills of video production and storytelling.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
(FROM ALL THE OTHER GUYS)
We've always believed in the power of a genuine story.
We are tired of seeing so many interesting businesses and people
be sold short with uninspired, cookie-cutter video content.
You aren't like everyone else, so why should your videos be?
We can do better.
We dig past the surface of what you do, share the passion and care behind your craft, and create an engaging experience for your audience that they will remember and share.
MEET THE TEAM
Our great team and the talented industry professionals we hire are key to our success. (And yours!)
They bring tons of passion and dedication to every project. They are problem solvers with the desire to constantly improve and master their craft. They make doing what we do enjoyable and make our work stand out above others.
Co-founder, director of content creation + director/producer
Nick started Occulus Films with his brother, Dominic, back in 2014.
As the older brother, he just wanted to help him out with his new hobby; filmmaking. But he got sucked right into it and hasn't stopped.
Now, he produces compelling video content for a variety of fascinating and passionate people. He's directed 1 feature film and produced 2 others.
He's a graduate of New Mexico Military Institute, a paralegal in the Army National Guard, and a passionate storyteller.
Movies he loves - Mad Max: Fury Road and Blade Runner
Co-founder, technical director + cinematographer/editor
Dominic started Occulus Films with Nick in 2014.
His skills lie in visual storytelling and knowledge of the latest technology.
He's got a strong natural instinct for design and creating beautiful images which he's honed over the years to a fine point.
Now, he's also a world-renowned hip-hop dancer (Elektro Botz, Outlawz, Elektrolytes) as well as a production pro, and works with Nick and their clients in between trips to perform with his dance crews across the country.
Movies he loves - Oblivion and Jack Reacher
Head of Production + video producer
Originally from England, Jack is a well-rounded producer whose attention to constant improvement and practical, results-oriented approach make him an invaluable member of the team.
He's not afraid to pick up the camera himself or do whatever is needed in order to get things done and he's (frankly) a joy to work with.
Movies he loves - Heat and Glengarry Glen Ross
