Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about 8FLiX
Who is 8FLiX?
Okay, But Who Are You?
My name is Nick. And for now, I am the only dude maintaining 8FLiX.
I am also an IMDb top contributor and German-language beta-tester (hold your applause, please). But that's for another day.
Nick's Brief Bio
Movies have the power to motivate and affect us in ways that are difficult to describe.
When I was a boy, I saw a movie that changed my life. It was a deeply personal journey that would forever change how I viewed the world. It was simply...magical.
Once I walked out of that theater in 1982, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.
But, there was no Hollywood ending for me.
And Then What?
I did spend more than 25 years working in the television industry in virtually every position. My main job, however, was as a DP working on 'lifestyle' shows. But I never made it to the Big Leagues.
After a series of personal setbacks, I had to take a break. A long break.
And that's when I rediscovered my love for writing.
Soon after, 8FLiX was born!

But Why, Tho?
I believe the best way to learn is to do.
As humans, we have an intrinsic ability to mimic what we see others doing.
Remember that movie-moment I told you about earlier? I saw a book at the library that had excerpts from the screenplay. And those snippets of dialogue and action scenes became the foundation of my screenwriting education.
