Nick Frangione studied under Sundance winning filmmaker Eric Escobar in San Francisco. In 2017, Nick directed BUCK RUN, an atmospheric drama set in his hometown of rural Pennsylvania, with the incredible cast of James Le Gros (CERTAIN WOMEN), Kevin J. O'Connor (THERE WILL BE BLOOD), Amy Hargreaves (13 REASONS WHY), Alicia Goranson (ROSEANNE), Jim Parrack (FURY), Angus Macfadyen (BRAVEHEART), and starring Nolan Lyons (BOARDWALK EMPIRE). Frangione infused the film with his own childhood experience, which closely resembled that of Buck Run's 15-year-old lead character, delicately exploring teen grief, life in small-town America, and the fallibility of parental love. 

Frangione worked on the film with acclaimed filmmaker and editor David Barker (WHITE SUN), and finished post-production with Haos Film's Maria Hatzakou and Matthew Johnson (ATTENBERG, CHEVALIER), as well as sound-designer Leandros Ntounis (DOGTOOTH).
