Welcome to NCO Film & Design, a portfolio website for Nathaniel Oldham, a member of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Screen Engineers. (IATSE) When Nate’s working, you can find him helping movies get made and exhibitions get running. There is nothing a skilled IATSE crew is unable accomplish, and Nate takes pride in being a member of both Local 7 in Colorado, and Local 481 in New England.
From a very young age, Nate has always been drawn to “the show.” (Any big event that draws a crowd) Whether it’s a local farmer’s market or a worldwide production tour, he always feels at home working under pop-up tents with generators running in the background. Wherever Nate may work next, you can rest assured, there will be plenty of road cases and nomads involved.
In his teenage years, Nate was a member of Phuture Productions; a small independent lighting and sound crew comprised of misfit raver dj’s that helped make the rave scene a historical event in the mid to late 90’s. Nate discovered his passion for lighting and sound while traveling with Phuture, supplying intelligent light shows and 50,000 watt Turbosound systems for events that spanned Philadelphia, New York and the farthest reaches of New England. He now pursues his passion for lighting and sound design as a Union Stagehand for IATSE Local 7 in Denver, where he gets to work at some of the most well known concert venues in the world, and set up conventions that draw people from every corner of the globe.
During Nate’s years with the Phuture Crew, he and his friends often talked about the dream of making movies and how to form it into reality. Following the demise of the 90’s rave scene and the disbanding of Phuture Productions, a few surviving members of the crew have moved on to feature film and television production. Being members of IATSE Local 481 in New England gives Nate and his friends the opportunity to work face-to-face with some of the greatest talent in film history, for one of the strongest film Unions in the world; IATSE Local 481.
In the future, Nate plans to hone his writing skills, build a production company with his friends, and create his own brand of “shows,” however they may find their way into being. But none of this happens, without first spending time with his family – his wife, two obnoxious cats, a wolf-dog named Donut, and their crazy kids; the two most beautiful girls in the world. If neither work or family is on Nate’s agenda, then you can find him browsing used bookstores, skiing the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, hiking the White Mountains of New Hampshire, or traveling the world.
