Nick Fitzhugh

Nick Fitzhugh is an award-winning director / showrunner who began his career as a student at Brown University (BFA ‘02) by founding Glimpse. Seven years later the company was acquired by the National Geographic Society. He continued to run what became National Geographic Glimpse for three years with Glimpse co-founder, Kerala Taylor. In 2010, Nick turned his full-time attention to directing, producing, writing and shooting short films, music videos, series and features. His first film, Soccer City (2010), a documentary series about life and soccer in the largest and most notorious township in South Africa during the first ever World Cup to be held in Africa, was picked up by Nat Geo, ESPN Classic, Netflix, and SuperSport and is also available on VOD.  

Being distributed worldwide by Netflix and in the U.S. on public television networks by American Public Television, Nick's second film, Starboard Light, is a 60-minute documentary feature spanning five generations that explores the question of whether a family makes a house or whether a house makes family.

Nick created and is currently showrunning Conflict, a Webby-award-winning documentary miniseries being distributed by Netflix, The Atlantic, and Vimeo that goes behind the lens with some the world's best conflict photographers.


Through his production company redfitz, Nick has produced and directed films for global brands and organizations such as Netflix, CNN, National Geographic, ESPN Classic, TED, SuperSport, C&G Partners, Nat Geo Student Expeditions, The New York Times and The Helmsley Charitable Trust.

Nick has also co-directed and produced films with other directors such as Shaul Schwarz, Topaz Adizes, Chris Keener, Rob Shore and Francisco Campos-Lopez.
