Meet Ashley Nicole, Upcoming Film director.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Nicole.

Ashley, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I first started making short films my first year college back in 2019, but they weren’t for school they were mainly just for fun, and of course not everyone is a professional their first time doing something like this, so I had to practice while I was making these films. I started off by uploading them to YouTube before they went to any streaming platforms. My original plan was to become a YouTuber but I guess fate and destiny had other plans for me.

Has it been a smooth road?
Some of the struggles that I faced along the road was my weight gain my first year of college, which completely took away my energy, confidence, and Creativity.

I was lazy all the time and I was constantly eating whenever I felt like it and I wasn’t being careful with my health.

And college was very hard for me considering it was my first year, and at one point in my second semester, I just stopped going to my classes all together and just sat outside by myself.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m an indie filmmaker I dont have a budget or a team to help me I just do everything by myself. And sometimes, it can be stressful but I also have tons of fun doing what I do especially by myself since I have more creative freedom!

And one thing that I’m most proud of, is that after filming and all the work I put into my projects is that it comes out the way I envisioned it and that’s something that just makes me proud of what I do.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Absolutely! Los Angeles and Hollywood is where all the filming magic happens and where you can thrive and grow as an upcoming film director.

For someone who is just starting out I would recommend get as much content out as you can and share it with people on YouTube, social media Etc.
