About Us

Gilded Cinema was founded by Alex Darke and Trevor L. Nelson after meeting at the University of Southern California’s esteemed School of Cinematic Arts.

The duo recognized a shared passion for the art of filmmaking and a similar business outlook that focuses on creativity, originality, and inclusivity.

For the past 15 years, Alex and Trevor have been creating films, paving the way for the “new media” of digital content, and working with industry legends.

Their efforts have awarded their projects hundreds of millions of views, multiple Emmy nominations, and numerous award-wins at international film festivals and award ceremonies.
