Boom Operator

Nikki Myers

Nikki Myers is a soon-to-be graduate of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with B.A. degrees in both Film Studies and Music. Having studied classical piano for 15 years, she has made several appearances with the UNCW Piano Ensemble and was the guest accompanying pianist for the UNCW Wind Symphony’s 2010 production of Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition”, as well as numerous solo performances. As a filmmaker, Nikki’s heart is in the sound department. In 2011, she was the boom operator for independent feature film “11:11″ (dir. Meg Lansaw), and shortly thereafter took on a short werewolf film, “Dinner for Two” (dir. Josh Prindiville), as the script supervisor (possibly her only non-sound involvement with film, so far) . In 2012, Nikki took on the responsibility of the sound mixer in her senior thesis, “Bluejay” (dir. Pedro Cortes). She just recently finished an internship with a local post-production sound studio, Audio Kitchen Post. There, she focused on her true love, post-production sound, and worked on various projects including Gospel Music Channel’s sitcom, “In Sickness and In Health.”

When Nikki is not working with film sound or practicing her fingers off at the piano, she likes to catch up on her favorite TV shows such as “House” and “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Having been a gamer chick since she was very young, Nikki also likes to wind down by gearing up in her favorite Xbox games, “Halo” and “Mass Effect.” She hopes to one day to fulfill her dream of becoming a post-production sound designer and music editor for science-fiction/fantasy films and video games. However, she still wants to be a Jedi when she grows up.
