Of note, Nicole holds 2 Degrees from the University of Michigan in Film & TV Production as well as a BFA in acting. Shortly after graduating, Nicole founded and ran a Summer Film School for youth ages 9-17, where she taught all steps of the filmmaking process (i.e. screenwriting, production design, filmming, editing).
Nicole loves passing down the skills and secrets of filmmaking, and the tools for creative expression. Filmmaking promotes problem solving skills, creating writing, team work, technoloigal know-how, and imagination!
The Filmmaking course will include lessons of each filmmaking step:
1. Screenwriting (Complete a short script)

In 2013, I started and ran a successful Summer Film School for youth ages 9-17, where I taught every step of the filmmaking process -- from screenwriting to editing the final project! I ran the school until 2016 (at which point we grew from an original 20 to 200 youth) when I decided it was time for a change. The school still exits in a physical location, but I have moved away from the area, and hope to continue teaching online as I continue to my career in film production.
