AstroMike Films

AstroMike Films, also referred to as simply AM Films  is an independent film company run by Michael Fatukasi-Richards with the creative capabilities to create comedic-action films. AM Films’ objective is to combine humour and visuals to create shorts that could past off as feature films with humorous characters and action or comedic story lines that appeal to audiences of all ages.

AM Films is led by director Michael F-Richards, young film-maker who has filmed many short skits and media events for St Paul’s Acedemy, which included the opening of the Music department by British rapper Tinie Tempah. Under the guidance of his former media teacher, who now works in post production for many media outlets including the BBC, Michael has built a creative idea that includes brilliant visuals and story development. He’s responsible for producing, writing, directing, filming and editing most if not all of AM Films and Nightfall’s projects.

Nightfall Productions

Nightfall Productions was founded on the principles of promoting all genres using comedy and storytelling as a vessel. The four founders (Michael Fatukasi-Richards, Rob Bastug, Sam Hearn and Jack Birch) possess exceptional chemistry given their similar experiences growing up, while also excelling in higher education, thus making their approach refreshing and revolutionary. Excitement and demand for Nightfall has attracted numerous invitations from producers, musicians and other comedians.
