Last year Nick was invited by NBA casting agency to star in the Hollywood blockbuster film ‘Spencer’ starring some of Hollywood’s most prestigious heavyweight actors, including one of Nick‘s favourite Timothy Spall (The Last bus), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) and Jack Farthing (The Lost Daughter).
Filming took place last summer and had to remain a closely guarded secret until the film’s release. Already a resounding success at the Venice film festival, ‘Spencer’ directed by Pablo Larraín is predicted to sweep up at the BAFTAs and Oscars early next year. Larraín is no stranger to the Academy Awards, his 2016 film, ‘Jackie’ was nominated for an Academy Award ,and his ‘A Fantastic Woman’ won an Academy Award For Best Foreign Language Film in 2017.
Nick spent some time with the star of the film, Kirsten Stewart to capture some unique shots of this truly talented and professional actor in full costume.
“I was very lucky to be picked for this role. The whole experience took me back to a period when I was a press photographer. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Kirsten Stewart”. (Nick Elliott)
Nick himself was in full 1980s costume, see if you can spot him in the films trailer.
‘Spencer’ is due for UK release on November 5.
So get yourself some popcorn and pop along to your local cinema for a visual treat with Larraíns latest stunning contribution to the film industry.

Recently Nick made a visit to the offices of Kings Lynn’s local newspaper, The Evening News, which was the location of the latest Dead Reynolds music video shoot. Nick was there to capture Dead Reynolds performing their new single for the video and to add to the rockumentary series.
Andy Blithe was also shadowing Nick, capturing our favourite rock photographer doing what he does best for the Aturn Film Production, ‘Nick Elliott -The Story So Far’ a documentary about Nick’s life.
Dead Reynolds rocked to the town of Kings Lynn, as the sound of their new track ‘Bring It On,’ could be heard streets away. Filming was completed during the day and will be released in June. The video shoot was a resounding success and completed with the help of numerous extras.
Triston Finnis from Twisted Melon Productions also rocked up for moral and extra support. Dead Reynolds sounded and looked amazing for the shoot so give the music video a hit on YouTube and see how fantastic this new track sounds.
These boys are really going places they just keep astounding us with their superior songwriting and breathtaking musical performances leaving the audiences wanting more and more.
“First time out for some months and I’m back on the project in a serious way. I’ve got some really good stuff that will be a strong addition to the rockumentary. It was really great to catch up with the boys, Dead Reynolds are a tremendous band. There is lots to look forward to.” Nick Elliott

Recently Nick had the rare opportunity to work with several talented and much loved Hollywood A listers. Nick was contacted by a casting agency to consider playing a small but significant role in a Hollywood blockbuster film due for general cinematic release in autumn 2021 across the UK.
It was an early morning set call, on a cold brisk morning, and the filming of Nick’s scene took all day at a secret location.
To reduce the possibility of any leaks to the National Tabloids, no photos were permitted on set as the Hollywood actors were in full costume. Strict Covid -19 restrictions were in place to prevent any chance of the production being closed down. Whilst waiting for the scene set up, Nick mingled with some of the cast and crew.
“ What a fantastic experience. This was a first for me on this kind of level. I’m looking forward to more opportunities. It was wonderful to meet so many interesting people. The main star of the movie is played by an exceptional actor who was extremely kind, with an absolute wicked sense of humour. The professionalism they displayed was top drawer and their talent as a performer was immeasurable. (Nick Elliott)
