Welcome to Nilescat films

NilesCat Films is a small production company located in central North Carolina.  Established in 2009, it’s first production was the web series ‘The Carrier’  Filming began in early 2010 with the first episode premiering in April of that same year.  Nine episodes were completed and aired successfully on and Exposure Room.

Soon after, preproduction began on our first feature film, Dancing Lessons.  Roger Franks, owner of NilesCat Films, along with Michael Devereaux, owner of Lagniappe Motion Pictures have joined together to develop projects over the next several years with Dancing Lessons being their first feature.

About me. 

Roger Franks began his writing career in 2001, writing a feature length screenplay titled ‘The Last Goodnight’, a supernatural thriller.  The script gained the attention of a director of development with John Davis Productions and  an agent with Abrams Artists Agency.

After being shopped and placing in several competitions, Roger has continued to write, adding 10 screenplays to his library.  Although his genre of choice is horror/supernatural, he has also written scifi, period and romance/drama.  Dancing Lessons is his first attempt at a contemporary love story.

In 2007, he was awarded a grant for screen writers from the North Carolina Arts Council and his first screenplay, ‘The Last Goodnight‘ was a tie breaking script in the Page International Screenwriting Awards in 2009.

In late 2009, Roger teamed with Michael Devereaux to produce a nine part web series, ‘The Carrier’.  After a successful run he and Mike turned their attention to feature film, with Dancing Lessons being the first script to produce. 

Roger lives in central North Carolina with his wife Joyce, four dogs and eight cats.
