Nick Wakefield
VP, Creative Director
Mob Scene

LOS ANGELES, USA // After beginning his career at a “small UHF TV station” in Boston, Nick moved to LA and worked as a freelance Producer/Editor on a large variety of projects, including network promo campaigns, syndication campaigns, short form television, music videos (one for Ry Cooder directed by David Fincher), and finally, theatrical trailers.

Landing a job at Universal Pictures as an in-house trailer editor, he was soon promoted to Producer, then Director, and finally, VP Creative Advertising, where he worked on campaigns for the American Pie franchise, Bruce Almighty, Out of Sight, and Fast & Furious, to name just a few. But surprisingly, he missed sweating it out in the trenches, so he jumped back to the vendor side as a theatrical Creative Director at Trailer Park, then Mojo, and finally Mob Scene, where he has been for over 8 years, transitioning to work on his first love, broadcast and cable TV marketing. Over the years he has collected a number of awards for theatrical and TV campaigns, including a Gold Clio with his partners at Nickelodeon for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.
