Nick Stone Schearer


Nick is a New York-raised Californian, filmmaker, photographer, partner and dad. His first foray into independent filmmaking was aboard a 4-seat Cessna, documenting impacts of the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, he spent several years in New York working and learning as a Production Assistant and later a Cinematographer and Editor in collaboration with networks and brands including ABC, the MSG Network and American Eagle.

Since moving to the Bay Area in 2015, he's focused on developing his voice through the stories he was drawn to in the beginning, about the natural systems around us and the spectrum of relationships humanity has with them. And he's continued to collaborate with other filmmakers, organizations, and brands including Bloomberg, Netflix and the Biden/Harris campaign.

His latest effort, don’t feed the coyotes, is screening at film festivals across the country. Through the observations of two starkly-different naturalists, the half-hour documentary chronicles several years in the intertwined lives of San Francisco’s urban coyotes.
