Nick Meyer is an American film producer and CEO of Sierra/Affinity. Meyer was the president of Paramount Vantage until December 2008. In 2007, with Meyer as co-head of Paramount, the Studio received 19 Academy Award nominations. Four of the Studio's 2007 feature films were honored: There Will Be Blood, a Paramount Vantage and Miramax co-production, received eight nominations, winning Best Picture among others; No Country for Old Men, also a Miramax and Paramount Vantage co-production, received eight nominations; Into the Wild earned two nominations; The Kite Runner garnered one nomination. At the 80th Academy Awards, Blood and No Country won a combined six awards, including the Academy Award for Best Picture for No Country, the Academy Award for Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis in Blood, and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem in No Country.
Formerly, Meyer was the long-time president of Lionsgate International, a division of Lionsgate Studios. He founded Sierra Pictures in 2009. In 2010, Meyer formed White Knuckle Pictures with Brett Ratner to develop and finance moderately priced action films. In 2011, his Sierra Pictures merged with film sales company Affinity International to become Sierra/Affinity.
In addition to representing sales of third party films, Sierra/Affinity is as the exclusive sales agent for films developed and produced by Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, Bold Films and Sierra Pictures. Following Entertainment One’s (eOne) strategic equity investment in Sierra Pictures in January 2016, the international sales and distribution of films produced and acquired by eOne Features, as well as eOne-distributed films from The Mark Gordon Company, will be handled by Sierra/Affinity outside of Canada, the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Benelux and Spain, where eOne directly distributes films.
