Nicole's Feature Film Fund


Hi Family & Friends!

My name is Nicole L. Thompson and I am a filmmaker from Newark, NJ.  I am currently raising money to make my first feature film!

During November I had the opportunity to shadow Producer Nina Yang Bongiovi on a feature film set. I was on set for the entire production. I believe I am equipped to direct my first feature. In May I graduated with my MFA in Film in TV Production at the University of Southern California, the same school that alum Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Black Panther), Shonda Rhimes (How to Get Away with Murder, Grey's Anatomy) and George Lucas (Star Wars) studied at. I am learning filmmaking from Hollywood's best and brightest.

It is my dream to use filmmaking as a vehicle to change the world. I began studying filmmaking at the age of 13 and every year since then I have been working hard towards my dream of becoming a director. Over the years I've made several short films that has opened doors for me to intern at the Cannes Film Festival, NBC Universal, and the TV Academy. Most recently, I directed a short film called Summer of Justice at Warner Brothers Backlot.

Everything I've learned all culminates to making a full length film that will break me through Hollywood! I cannot make this film alone. Please donate to help me make my first feature film. Every penny counts.
