Antiquitas Pictures is an independent production company dedicated to the art of storytelling. We produce meaningful content that enlightens the soul and feeds the mind through cinema by seeking truth within ourselves, our lives, and events that transpire around us. We aim to bring that truth to the screen with innovation and a passion for historical, adventurous, and mystical tales that transcend time and place. Our stories aspire to teach us who we were, who we are, and who we can strive to be.
ANTIQUITAS PICTURES (formerly Silver Square Productions) was founded by actor/filmmaker NEVIN MILLAN. It is his vision to make films that touch the heart, bear the soul, and leave the viewer intellectually, emotionally and viscerally affected. Nevin has been passionate about films since he was a child fascinated and inspired by movies on the silver screen. From the sweeping, epic scenes in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, SPARTACUS & BEN-HUR, to the grit and lore of CLASH OF THE TITANS. From the buoyant adventures of INDIANA JONES, E.T., & STAR WARS, to the heartfelt dramatical truth of GLORY & SCHINDLER’S LIST. And there’s the inspiring masterpiece work in GANDHI, THE GODFATHER TRILOGY, BRAVEHEART & GLADIATOR, and more recently, the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, that left lasting impressions regarding great storytelling. These are the types of films that captivated and influenced him growing up, and it’s these types of stories ANTIQUITAS PICTURES aspires to create.
Through pursuing his career as an actor in Los Angeles, Nevin’s ingenuity, ambition and serendipitous path-crossing led to his pursuit of filmmaking. Beginning in 2005, he and writer/director Trent Moran began filming their first short film, BALANCE, which screened at the 2006 LOS ANGELES SHORT FILM FESTIVAL. In 2007, Nevin’s short film adaptation, IN ANOTHER TIME, based on excerpts of the acclaimed theatre play, INTIMATE APPAREL, also screened at several film festivals to rave reviews.
In 2008, Nevin teamed up with Georgian filmmaker, Nikoloz Khomasuridze, to shoot the short film DIDGORI: LAND OF SACRIFICED KNIGHTS in Tbilisi, Georgia. The historical epic story from Georgian culture was brought to film for the first time with the intention of developing and garnering interest for a feature epic version. find out more
Continuing with the momentum of success with the short film format, Antiquitas Pictures is developing several feature film and television projects. find out more
