DIRECTOR / PRODUCER
Randall Nickerson has been working in the film industry since 1987, first as an actor and then transitioning into cinematography and ultimately into directing. Nickerson is a trained concert pianist, pilot, and a professional commercial and nature photographer who has had highly reviewed galleries in Manhattan and Massachusetts. His photos have also appeared in several books including NY Times Best Seller UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record. His photography site is randallnickersonphotography.com. Ariel Phenomenon is Nickerson's first feature length documentary as a director / producer. When he first learned of the Ariel School encounter, he was struck by the sincerity and sense of truth demonstrated by the children and felt compelled to invest as much time as necessary to make the definitive documentary about the incident. Nickerson has spent years traveling to the school in Zimbabwe and all over the world to interview the students, teachers, and other witnesses, and to secure exclusive footage for the film. Nickerson’s film, video and photographic production company, String Theory Films, LLC, can be found at stringtheoryfilmsllc.com.
