Proof of concept no-budget teaser to fund the feature
FRACKERS - When a lonely scientist dies unexpectantly, he must learn to connect with others and dance to save earth.
A sci-fi comedy feature that explores some of humanity's biggest questions...at an afterlife summer camp for aliens.
Nicholson directed a Litwin brother's script outside Austin Texas.
FREESTYLE - Nicholson's first feature script for Fox (ultimately ruined with studio rewrites and poor direction). Heartbreaking, as it started out as a well-reviewed touching coming of age story, heavily influenced by Nicholson's life growing up and his love of riding dirt bikes and racing motocross.
