Nicolas started Sampsonic Media to develop and produce original material across multimedia platforms, ranging from cinema and literature to online multimedia content.

Nicolas entered the film industry as an executive producer on the short film Lost Bullets. His next short film, The 13th Mirror, was based on characters he created, and the one after that, The Politics of Conflict, on a short story he wrote. He went on to write and executive produce the feature film Behind the Mirror, which premiered at the Manhattan Film Festival and won Best Thriller.

Nicolas is currently writing the TV series Wake of Liberty, a historical dark fantasy story based on the French Revolution.

Following a degree in Media and Cultural Studies Gavin began his working life as a media planner for DDB, a top five global advertising agency. He went on to enjoy a successful career as a freelance designer and art director for print and TV commercials.

He joined the Sampsonic Media team in 2011 after almost a decade as creative director at Bumblebee, an independent ad agency with a client list that included McDonald's, Stolichnaya and Buena Vista Social Club.
