Who we are

David Karsten, Ivan Davidov, Sam Barrett

Nakatomi Pictures is an independent production company that endeavors to deliver high impact Australian genre films with rich, compelling stories and unique characters.  The trio of Sam Barrett, Ivan Davidov and David Karsten met in 2005 and formed ‘Nakatomi Pictures’ after several short film projects.  Their debut feature ‘No Through Road‘ (2008), a vicious urban thriller, performed well beyond expectations on the festival circuit before being acquired by Accent Underground locally and Cinema Epoch abroad.

The week after the premiere screening of ‘No Through Road’, the three began production on their follow up feature ‘Esoterica’.  Esoterica is a complex ‘neo-noir’ that delivers a mind bending mystery with an emotional punch.

Nakatomi’s third and most ambitious feature film Sororal is currently in the final stages of post production.  The film is a bold and unique thriller that melds an exciting range of genres into a truly exciting romp rife with mind control, a childlike killer, vibrant splashes of colour and an epic synth infused score.
