A native Australian transplant to America by way of NYU’s film program, Nicole Alexander has worked as an award-winning director, producer, cinematographer, and editor across the film & television, live events, music, and music festival venues.
After spending several formative years as a creative-producer/director at MTV and 1iota, in 2016 she set up her solo production venture ‘Hashtag, You’re It’, where she directs, shoots, and edits multi-platform content for TV networks, production houses, agencies, brands, artists, and musicians. In addition to assisting with the launch of Instagram’s own video channel, she has directed and produced with YouTube, Comedy Central, NBC-Universal, ABC, Getty Entertainment, iHeart Radio, TLC, Ford, Snapchat, BMW Films, Red Bull, Google, Vevo, Delta, Coachella and a multitude of artists including DJ Khaled, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Lorde and more.
She is a recipient of over 60 film festival awards for various projects in addition to a multiple Helpmann award winner. Stylistically as a director she has become known for her quirky use of split screens and transitions, dolly zooms, and moving gimbal shots that take the audience in a completely unexpected direction.
As a former classically trained opera singer at the Sydney Conservatorium, it is quite apparent music and sound design are at the core of all the content she creates, specially her skills as a musician translating into her signature editing style.
Nicole will make her feature film directorial debut in 2019 and has just finished producing, directing and shooting her first feature documentary Tiger Fish about the inspiring quadriplegic James Gribble, narrated by Dr Chris Brown.
