Until You Walk the Path: Don Schmeichel

Until You Walk the Path, You Don’t know Where it Goes will be hosting Don Schmeichel from Nervous World Productions on December 20 at 5 pm eastern.

Pivotal in Don’s career was his work as CFO for an international Post-Production, Animation and Visual Effects company in Toronto, Canada; Southampton, NY; Hamburg, Germany, and as Managing Director of The Posthouse Ltd., in Wellington, New Zealand (the company responsible for all Digital Intermediary work on The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers and Return of the King). He also served as Post Executive Producer on the Emmy-nominated; PBS / Sony Pictures property, It’s a Big Big World, in 2005/2006.

In late 2006, Don transitioned to a career as an independent Producer / Executive Producer, through his company: Nervous World Films Corp. At present time, Don is attached to a number of films in various stages of development and pre-production; most notably: Love Okay, Please; The Wine Cellar; Son of a Beeker; The Pride of Bismarck ; and Andrasy Street 60.

In 2009, Don acted as the Consulting Producer on Season 1 of the PBS Television series: Hannah Help Me, and in the fall of 2009, Don Produced the entire 2nd Season of the show in Virginia (Airing May 2010 on the full PBS network).

Don offers a highly competent blend of art and business. He’s as comfortable in a boardroom structuring complex finance deals; as he is in dealing with the creative elements of a film or Television series.
