Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the internet! My name is Nick Shirsty, and I was born and raised (for the most part) in Dallas, Texas.

I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Art and Technology from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2013. For the last several years I have worked as Lighting and Compositing artist in the United States and Canada. Some of the projects I was involved with include “Free Birds,” released in 2013; “The Book of Life,” in 2014; "Everybody Wants Some," in 2016; "Rock Dog," in 2017; and "The Nut Job 2," in 2017. I've also had the chance to work on several commercial and virtual reality projects during my time in the industry so far.

I love the creative and technical challenge of telling a story through lighting. I've always enjoyed watching movies, and the fact that I get to help bring them to life now is a dream come true. I hope you like my work!
