About Tom Nicklaus

I'm working as 1.&2.AC, Colorist and DoP.

I'm also self-employed as freelancer since 2019.

From 2020 to 2022, I've worked as an Department Assistent for the "Digital Film Production" - Department. Besides supporting student projects and holding lectures & seminars, I was responsible for the management of the film equipment. I'm still working as a lecturer for SAE to this day.

I'm also certified by Blackmagic Design as official DaVinciResolve-Trainer since 2022.

I own a grading suite in a studio community.
