Nigel was a highly experienced and well known film producer whose career spanned across five decades.
Beginning his career as a runner in the mid-1970s with one of his first roles being on The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Nigel moved through the ranks of location managing, assistant directing, production managing and ultimately producing.
Over his career, he gave his experience to productions working across five continents and over 30 countries.
Some of Nigel’s credits include Ripley’s Game, Casualties of War, Spies Like Us, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1999), Head in the Clouds, the bond films The World is Not Enough, and Tomorrow Never Dies, The Secret Garden, and many more!
He also worked with a number of leading brands who utilised his production expertise including Coca Cola, Ford, Harrods, Kuwait Airways, Jaguar, and Bentley Bugatti GTMC.
We know that Nigel was a fantastic colleague and a dear friend to many PG members and that he will be sorely missed.
Memories of Nigel
John Dodds, Producer
"Nigel and I started as runners together in the mid 70's. We clicked instantly and became great friends. We were both film nuts and loved working on films, talking about films and going to the cinema all the time!! I loved his passion for the business and his wonderful sense of humour. We did several films together in different grades on our way up the film industry ladder. It was wonderful to see and share his move to the job of producer and I am so grateful to have worked with him in this capacity on THE MERCHANT OF VENICE...with me as the AD. We had so many great times catching up and gossipping outrageously between jobs all over the world. I miss him terribly and can't believe he won't be at a table in Bafta next time I go in. A charming, funny and very decent man...and great at his job too.
RIP Nigel. Love John Dodds"
