Director(s): 

Nicholas Goulden

Driven by his curiosity for the human condition, British born writer and director Nicholas Goulden is interested in psychological narratives that challenge our perceptions of who we are.

Growing up in the Berkshire Downs, his early film influences ranged from Sam Peckinpah’s Cross Of Iron to Ralph Bakshi’s The Lord Of The Rings and Roland Joffé’s The Mission. He knew he wanted to tell stories with a similar power and impact but had no initial conception that making films himself was a possibility.

Despite no connections in the industry, in his mid 20’s he moved to London to find a way in. Working on every project going in any role he could get, for over a decade Nicholas made his way up the Assistant Director ranks, writing and making his own material in his spare time.

It was during his running career he made many of the connections that helped make Forget Me Not a reality, including James Cosmo and Angela Godfrey, whom he married shortly before filming.
