Nathaniel Starck is a D.C.-based non-fiction producer and director obsessed with breakthrough filmmaking approaches and authentic, human stories.
With a keen sense of story structure, an eye for pop-out talent, and an innovative camera and lighting style, Starck has been recognized for elevating production after production across genres for more than two decades. His work has appeared on major television networks including TLC, Discovery, National Geographic, Animal Planet and Bravo.
A partner and executive producer for Flying Scoop, he co-created the nitrous-packed three-season reality show “Fastest Cars in the Dirty South” for Motor Trend, produced and directed the social justice-facing drama, "Spook" on Tubi, co-created and directed the upcoming "Hatfields and McCoys: Forever Feuding" for Fox Nation and also "Reverend Gadget's Garage," coming up on EarthXTV.
Attracted to complex subjects and edgy techniques, Starck was the showrunner for season two of “Geraldo Rivera’s Murder in the Family” for Reelz, which dives deep into some of the darkest hours in a celebrity’s life. He also provided storytelling and direction for series such as “Billy The Kid: New Evidence” and “Golden State Killer: It’s Not Over” for ID.
In other genres, he directed on “My 600-lb Life” on TLC, “Cheap Eats” on Cooking Channel, and the reboot of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” for Travel.
He started his career working with GRB Entertainment development team preparing for A&E’s series, “Intervention” where he contributed a long lens and handheld camera filming technique and steel blue interview lighting style that “symbolized an addict's claustrophobic and unstable state of emotions.” It went on to become the signature look of the series. A few years later, he returned to the series as a producer and writer for the critically acclaimed series and Emmy-winning team.
While raised on the art and science of home videos since age 4 by a creative writer mother and marketing father, he first studied filmmaking at Towson University, where he became an award-winning film student, before following his passion to Los Angeles.
Today, Starck is a member of the Producers Guild of America (PGA). While on the road filming most days from the bustling streets of New York to remote regions of India, he calls the DMV home.
In 2018, we were in the dark backwoods of Tennessee filming a race car hurtling down a dragstrip at 140 mph. Suddenly, the entire front hood of the car tore itself from its hinges, flew through the air and slammed into an overhead sign gantry, exploding into dozens of pieces.
Like many race car hoods, it contained an air intake, called a scoop, that was lost in the impact. The next morning, our cast combed through the debris and found the Flying Scoop! Later, it was presented to us as a gift that the cast/crew all signed.
That scene not only became a pivotal moment in the first show we created, it symbolizes everything we love about the stories we make:
