about

Nick Psinakis and Kevin Ignatius are a writing and directing team. They established Four Eighteen Films, LLC, a production company committed to developing low-cost, high quality, independent, character driven films and television.

In 2011, they wrote, acted and produced the short film The Adoption Agency in conjunction with FunnyOrDie starring Rex Lee (Entourage, Young & Hungry). In addition to garnering much attention on the website, the film opened the 2011 LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival. It went on to win the 2011 Christopher Wetzel Award for Independent Comedy and was an Official Selection for the 2011 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in both Chicago and Montreal respectively.

 

They followed up The Adoption Agency with the sketch Shannon Elizabeth Vs. Black Ops starring Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie, Scary Movie). The video received over 200,000 views on FunnyOrDie and garnered “IMMORTAL” status (overwhelmingly voted funny by viewers).

 

In 2014, Nick and Kevin secured a deal with Legendary TV & Digital for their half-hour TV comedy series Life Behind Bars. Although the show never got made.

 

In 2016, they wrote and directed the sci-fi genre short films J and Hook Man.  Hook Man won eight awards while J had its World Premiere at Omaha Film Festival sharing a film block with other short films that starred Kristen Wiig and Oscar Issac most notably.

 

Nick and Kevin's most recent collaboration is Four Eighteen Films feature film debut, the indie comedy My Best Friend's Famous. The film stars Psinakis alongside Oscar Nominee Ryan O’Neal (Love Story, Barry Lyndon) and two time Emmy Nominee Mindy Sterling (The Goldbergs, Austin Powers). The movie premiered on Amazon Prime in September 2019.

Four Eighteen Films sophomore feature film, the psychological adventure horror, The Long Dark Trail is set to release early 2023.
