Nut Bucket Films (NBF) is a Los Angeles based film production and development company headed by Lije Sarki.
Growing up on a skateboard in Northern Michigan, Lije always knew he would end up in California. A lot of college and two degrees later he ended up in Los Angeles pursuing an acting career.
In 2008, after hearing an inspiring speech, he decided he didn’t want to wait any longer for someone to give him a job. He convinced his father, an avid writer and poet, to write a screenplay. Lije and his father partnered up, raised some cash, started NUT BUCKET FILMS, and produced what was to become the feature film, Alphonso Bow. Lije directed the film and it became the catalyst for his filmmaking career.
Since Alphonso Bow he’s worked as a freelance director and producer on projects ranging from branded content to feature length films and everything in between. His latest project, a massive skateboarding documentary called PUSH, is a collaboration between The Berrics, Mountain Dew, and NBC that introduces eight professional skateboarders and their journey to film a street part.
