Nikos Katsaounis is a filmmaker, producer and web-developer, based in New York City. Even though having studied philosophy and sociology, he considers himself primarily to be a documentary filmmaker. Lately he has been moving into the world of multimedia story-telling, and has produced and directed many webisodes, feature films, and animations.
Since journalism and media have been going through radical transformations over the past few years and Greece is at an interesting historical turning point, The Prism GR2010 was a perfect opportunity to test his hypothesis that we are at time in history where storytelling and self-publishing have the power to change the world. He has won a few awards for his documentary work, most notably as a member of the NBC team that received an Emmy in 2004. In 2010 he founded N-Coded a media company that focuses on documentary multi-media production. This summer he will launch the Beta version of www.Tidbit.tv, a new multimedia storytelling tool that he has been working on for a couple of years.
