Who Wrote this Site?




I am an award-winning documentary maker.  I have been travelling the world making films about the rich and powerful for the past 20 years.  I produce, direct, write and present.  I do not hold the camera or edit, and  love working with creative, multilingual editors and camera-people.

Last year BBC World showed my two-part series “Inside the World of China’s Super-Rich.” I made it because I wanted to show how the rise of the super-rich mirrored the rise of China itself.  I was most struck by the humility of China’s dollar-billonaires, and their hard work.

Current work:

I am  near completion on a 70 minute feature documentary titled  “Wang Jianlin – China’s top Entrepreneur, which is launching Q4 2014.

I am  also writing a book titled “One in a BIllion – Inside the World of China’s Super-Rich” – contact nick@vivum.net if you have any interest in publishing this in your own language or territory.

My most recent book is about a very different subject: Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in Modern America (Penguin, New York).
