So, here's a primer: First, his bio from the The Directors Bureau: Nash Edgerton knows his craft from both sides of the camera from his work as an actor, stunt performer, editor, producer, writer, and director. Since his short Deadline, which took out the top prize at Tropfest in 1997, Nash has directed a number of award-winning short films, music videos and commercials.
