TREVOR SHORT
CO-FOUNDER AND CFO
Co-founder and CFO Trevor Short oversees legal, finance and administrative operations for Nu Image, Inc., Millennium Films and all related companies.
Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, Short obtained a Bachelor of Law from the University of Rhodesia and an MBA at the University of Cape Town where he was awarded the Gold Medal. In 1980 Short entered the world of banking and commerce, joining Standard Chartered Merchant Bank in Harare as head of Corporate Finance, responsible for takeovers, mergers and IPO's. He then moved to Hill Samuel Merchant Bank in Johannesburg in 1984 as head of its Corporate Finance Division and subsequently to Investec Bank where he was responsible for eight IPOs on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, as well as numerous mergers and acquisitions
Short's finance background led him to develop a tax based financing formula to produce motion pictures in South Africa. He succeeded in procuring over $200 million from private investors to fund the production of international films made in South Africa. Much of the financing he secured was for films produced by Avi Lerner's Nu Metro group for international film companies. He also became a consultant to the Government of South Africa regarding film incentive legislation.

The performance of the first film "whet the appetite for the second film as a co-production," said Trevor Short, Nu Image's chief financial officer. But to ensure that the movie will be co-financed by a Chinese partner, Nu Image not only has to add scenes in the sequel's screenplay that can be shot in China, but also have the project approved by government censors. "It can't be detrimental to China," Short said of what the communist authorities look for.
The company tried to attract a Chinese co-production deal for its recent remake "Conan the Barbarian," but were turned down. "They seem to have a problem with mysticism and fantasy," Short said.
