Nicholas Motyka is a New York City based maker of movies. After two years at SUNY Purchase studying film, Motyka left the program for New York City in the hopes of finding a facility in which to collaborate in making a new series of works. It wasn't long before he partnered with Ideal Glass Studio in the heart of the East Village. During Motyka's collaboration with Ideal Glass, he has worked on music videos, performance art films, documentaries, live event videos and a trilogy of estranged short films. Within the ideas that captivate him, story and plot take a backseat to emotion, movement and rhythm. As he continues to explore and discover, Motyka hopes to find new ideas that immerse himself and his ever growing group of talented collaborators into challenges of craft and process.
