  • It just might be a breakthrough year for Nick Saik and Know Ideas Media.   Last summer Nick produced a short film called “Nut Milking Exposed” for his production company Know Ideas Media.   The short film was entertaining… VERY entertaining.  Nick set out to make a point that maybe certain liquids referred to as “milk” shouldn’t really be called milk.  But the script, the actor, the editing.. it was all so well done that the little video became a major viral success.

    So far “Nut Milking Exposed” has been seen over 35 million times!  That’s right 35,000,000 and counting!

    When Nick saw that viewers loved it, he entered “Nut Milking Exposed” in the 2019 Rosie Awards.  The Rosies are an annual award presentation by The Alberta Media Production Industries Association (AMPIA).  They are the top awards for the Alberta film making industry.  Nick entered four categories and is a finalist in every one of them!
