about libassi


I was born in Rome to a family of italian film producers and distributors. Inspired by the European films of my youth I began my creative journey by wandering the streets of the city of rome with my camera using the scenery around me to develop my artistic instincts.

nicole libassi Soon filmmaking and photography became essential sources for my creative satisfaction. After earning a Master's Degree in film and television in Italy I flew to New York City for further education in cinematography and photography.

As a cinematographer I Shot many short films music videos and fashion films experiencing both film and digital cameras such as Panavision 35mm Red epic and arri alexa. The short film Porcella was selected at Cannes Film Festival In 2013. In 2012 I wrote directed and produced Rebirth which was acclaimed in the New York City film festival circuit.

nicole libassi Today I work as a freelance film director / cinematographer and photographer in New York and I run my own photography studio in Brooklyn. As a visual artist the major concept within my aesthetic is a focus on both the palpable and veiled forms of beauty in the world.

From my point of view art is taking this vision and experimenting with diverse elements to foster a whole new impression and atmosphere. I like to create unexpected combinations of these elements to produce and conceptualize a variety in unity.
