Stubbornly dedicated to creating meaningful films with humor and heart.
There are two ideas that Mule Films believes in, romantic comedies do not exist in the real world and life is inherently funny. Mule Films was created under the direction of writer and director Nathan Ives to focus on creating character driven feature films with a uniquely humorous look at interpersonal connections as they exist in real life. With a stubborn disposition and a zany sense of humor, Mule Films creates relationship comedies that have a distinctive point of view which makes for relatable, poignant films.
To date, Mule Films has independently produced and sold various scripts and films both domestically and abroad including: “Dish Dogs” (co-writer), “Man Overboard” (writer), “The Unnatural” (co-writer) and “It’s Not You, It’s Me” (writer/director/producer).
About Writer/Director Nathan Ives:
A native of Ashville, North Carolina, Nathan came to California 18 years ago to play music. While songwriting and touring he began co-writing screenplays with Ashley Scott Meyers and found his passion for storytelling on the big screen. In 2000, Ives co-wrote “Dish Dogs” starring Sean Astin, Shannon Elizabeth, Brian Dennehy and Mathew Lillard and then headed out to tour with his band for several years. Once he returned to beautiful Los Angeles in 2008, he wrote “Man Overboard” which sold overseas to HBO. In 2010, he put his focus into launching his own production banner, Mule Films. The following year, he co-wrote and optioned his screenplay, “The Unnatural” to Andrew Lauren Co. (The Squid and the Whale). Most recently he wrote, directed and produced the brutally humorous relationship comedy, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” starring Ross McCall, Joelle Carter, Vivica A. Fox and Beth Littleford.
Ives resides in Los Angeles and plays with his band in his free time.
