Writer/Director/Producer/Actor - Ultra Low
Nicholas was born in Seattle to Hungarian parents on July 15th, 1986, and quickly immersed himself in the world of motion
pictures with the influence of his father, Írs Gyeney, who would sit with Nicholas to show him films like Star Wars, The Terminator
series, and the adventures of James Bond. Sadly, the tradition ended in 1998 when Nicholas' father died tragically. At just
12 years old and fueled by his loss, Nicholas started diving deeper into movies than ever before and soon discovered his calling
as a filmmaker.
After being awarded a full ride to the University of Southern California's prestigious film program, Nicholas began work
on his first independent film, while continuing his studies. After a successful premiere, the film found distribution and
began paving the road for Nicholas to establish relationships with many of the industry's most successful professionals.
In 2009, with USC and his first feature behind him, and after three years developing and sharpening his abilities as a
filmmaker, Nicholas wrote, produced, and directed his 2nd feature and first theatrically released film, "The Penitent
Man," which has been highly acclaimed for its unique structure and style. "The Penitent Man" stars Lance Henriksen
(Aliens, The Terminator, Millennium), and Andrew Keegan (10 Things I Hate About You), and is available on Netflix, iTunes,
Amazon, and other digital platforms.
In 2012, Nicholas directed his third feature, a dark comedy called, "Matt's Chance" starring Edward Furlong,
Lee Majors, Margot Kidder, and Gary Busey. After a successful film festival tour that garnered critical acclaim and several
awards for best picture, acting, and original score, "Matt's Chance" enjoyed a brief limited theatrical run, and
is now available on various VOD platforms.
In 2015, Nicholas made an indie homage to 90s action movies called Beta Test. Sporting an exciting cast of both rising
stars and genre veterans including Manu Bennett (Arrow, Spartacus, The Hobbit Trilogy), Larenz Tate (Menace II Society, Crash,
The Postman), and Linden Ashby (Mortal Kombat, Teen Wolf, Wyatt Earp), Beta Test also boasts one of the longest single-shot
choreographed fight sequences in film history.
His latest film, “Ultra Low”, serves as the culmination for the past decade of his filmmaking career,
which takes a meta self-reflexive approach to dramatic storytelling to capture the struggles and trials filmmakers face on
the road to accomplishing their dreams.
Now residing in Los Angeles, Nicholas is hard at work on new films with hopes of taking his career and ambitions to the
