Nicole Dorsey

Biography

At an early age, Nicole found herself spending countless hours watching people, trying to figure out how they worked and what made them tick. There was something hypnotic about observing these fascinating creatures. Since rising through the ranks of PA to Director, Nicole has carved a niche for herself, crafting deeply personal stories around characters whose emotions are laid bare for all to witness – like her short film about a young, anxiety-ridden actress abandoning her dreams shot onboard an actual flight; or her short about an ex-convict recently released from prison who painstakingly builds up the courage to call the daughter he hasn’t seen in fifteen years.

Today, Nicole continues to observe people with a keen eye, inserting nuance and honesty into each of her projects. They’re gritty and vulnerable. Films worth watching. Films about people. And with her first feature, Black Conflux on the precipice of release, Nicole cannot wait to sit in the audience, among the crowd of people, and observe them enjoying her film.
