I made this for my girlfriend's birthday.
Go Love started with the insight that it’s not who you love, it’s that you love. There’s definitely mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day: some want a Valentine, some need one and others don’t mind. What’s universal, though, is the need to give and receive love, and I think that can be done even with a stranger on a subway. I hope this film makes people around the world smile and know that love can take many forms. I wrote and directed it and my friend filmed it. It was seen over 65k times in over 150 countries.

As you may have realized, New York City payphone are now a thing of the past. They aren't being used anymore and the city is even getting rid of them. This marks a revolutionary time in history as this piece of genius is being replaced by other mediums. I'm sorry for your loss and I share the same pain. There was in better way to celebrate all the payphone has done for us and to see it off for a final time than to have a payphone funeral. The funeral took place in Manhattan, New York City by the West 4th subway station, where guests came together and listened to a eulogy. I wrote and directed it, and someone I met on Craigslist filmed it with his Canon 5D.

A BOY AND HIS BIKE
This is a film I made that documents my three day bicycle trip from New York City to Boston. I borrowed my friend's Nikon d5200, bought a tripod and threw it in my single speed's basket.
CHESS IS LIFE
This is a story of chess, life and drugs told by a wise chess player in Washington Square Park in New York City. It's my first film. I borrowed my friend's tripod, my other friend's Canon EOS Rebel T2i camera, and shot and edited it.
I found inspiration in film while interviewing for planning jobs following Miami Ad Schools' planning boot camp. I wrote a short film called "Seconds" which tells a story of the dichotomy between two guys and how their speed and attitude translates to their life and relationship. I found two people to shoot and edit it and I directed it.
ABOUT NICK SMATT
Handfuls of people from around the world help tell my story. I wrote and directed it, and filmmakers shot it with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 6D and edited it.
