Seguin Citizen: Nolan Henry Schmidt
Posted on 9/17/2018 1:49:00 PM.

 What is your current occupation?

I’m an independent filmmaker, and now, self-published author. I also help out my parents, who own the Elm Creek RV Park here in Seguin.

What do you do off the clock?

I like to go bowling at Pin Twist, seeing movies at the Alamo Drafthouse in New Braunfels, and play Dungeons & Dragons with my friends on the weekends.

What city and state were you born?

Seguin, Texas.

Who are your immediate family?

John Henry (Dad), Deborah (Mom).

What is the biggest challenge you have had to face?

It would probably be writing and self-publishing my first book, “Lanelle and the Elementary School Lock-In.”

Favorite TV/movie?

My favorite TV show is South Park and my favorate movie is Pulp Fiction.


I mostly enjoy a lot of classic rock, but I also enjoy a lot of music from the 70’s and the 80’s. I’m also a big fan of Gorillaz and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Favorite Seguin Business?

Z’s Toys and more is one of my favorite shops, even though I don’t go there as much. For favorite restaurant, I got several, but if I only had to choose one, it would be El Ranchito. Went there since I was a kid.

Something many may not know about me..

When I’m out and about by myself, I tend to be quiet in public. But, when I’m with my friends or someone I know, I’m really talkative.

5 dinner guests?

Quentin Tarantino, Ralph Bakshi, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, and Penn Jillette.

Roles in the community...

I’m a volunteer for the Seguin Autism Support Group, and I’m also the county chair of the Guadalupe county Libertarian Party.

Professional background.. Well, being county chair of the GCLP has been one of my leadership achievements. Sometimes, I have my doubts if I’m doing a good job, but my fellow party members have told me that they have support for me, which means a lot.

Proudest moments, career and personal.

I got to work on the tornado video for the Circle Arts Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz. It even had a brief mention in the Express-News. Getting my children’s novel self-published is probably my most proudest moment. Seeing it on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble made me very happy.

Strengths of this community:

Support for fellow community members and business. This is a good community for that. As well as more support for local education and those with special needs. I’m an avid supporter for special education, and I believe that’s what Seguin really needs right now.

-- most interesting about Seguin

The history. Everything from The Magniolia Hotel to both the Palace and Texas Theatres interest me. I’m probably one of the few in my generation that even thought it closed down before I was born.

What are your future plans?

I’m currently writing the second book of my Lanelle series. I’m hoping to continue it throughout the years. I also plan on trying to become a teacher sooner or later.
