Nick Monteleone (born February 13, 1978) is a film producer and composer, and a founding partner of Train Bridge Films, an independent production company and foreign sales agency.
Monteleone was born in Pensacola, Florida, the eldest of four children. His father, a musician, was in the US Navy., and his mother held several positions to support the family while his father was away on duty. He showed an affinity for music and acting at an early age, growing up in Milton, Florida and taking music classes from the age of 7. When he was 11, his family moved to central Florida where Nick studied music theory, violin, and double bass. A year later, his family moved back to Milton where Nick became involved in his church's theater group. At age 17, Nick worked as a host on the local television show The Fox 15 Breakfast Club TV show on WPMI-TV, the Gulf Coast Fox affiliate at that time before they switched with WALA-TV, which was then the NBC affiliate. After several productions with Pensacola Junior College and the Seville Dinner Theater, Nick created his first production company in Pensacola. Monteleone moved to Chicago to attend college at Columbia College Chicago, where he co-founded his second production company and began several collaborations as a composer on film projects.
Monteleone attended Milton High School. After high school, Nick spent a year at Florida State University, before returning to Pensacola to attend Pensacola Junior College. After graduating, Nick moved to Chicago in 2004 to study music composition at Columbia College Chicago. In 2005, Nick scored the short film "Improvisation" by Chicago director Zach Litwack, and the film was accepted as an official selection in the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and Kent Film Festival. In 2008 while at Columbia College, Nick scored the short film version of Litwack's "Lost and Found", which was screened at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
