"Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms have a good ear for the playful neo-noir tone and an equally strong eye for casting..." -- LA Times
THE NELMS BROTHERS (www.NelmsBros.com), filmmakers Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms, have written and directed numerous award-winning and critically-acclaimed feature films. With each of their endeavors completely different from the last, the Nelms Brothers are known for their unique ability to traverse from one genre to another, seamlessly and successfully, from drama to comedy to thrillers.
Their 2013 film, LOST ON PURPOSE, was a heartfelt coming-of-age drama that received numerous festival awards including Best Directors and Best Film (3x). Their 2015 feature, WAFFLE STREET, was a comedic turn based on an autobiographical memoir, which went on to win Best Narrative Feature and Screenwriter Awards across the U.S. Their most recent film, 2017’s SMALL TOWN CRIME, a crime thriller, was showcased at SXSW and BFI London Film Festival before its January 2018 theatrical release, upon which it received positive reviews from the NYT, LAT, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter among others. Now the film can be seen on Direct TV, iTunes, Amazon and Netflix. Up next, the Nelms Brothers are attached to direct the feature CAPTURE for Thunder Road, they serve as EPs on the comedy television series, “Everyone is Doing Great” and they are developing an original thriller/sci-fi TV series with Octavia Spencer.
