ABOUT THE ARTIST
Nicole Melillo is a Filmmaker and Photographer born and raised in the New York/New Jersey area. Her knowledge both on and off set has fueled her mission to create more accessible, in-depth experiences which aim to open discussions. She believes that film and television are not only art forms, but also strong mediums for positive change and connection.
Nicole seeks out and creates projects with this intention. In 2020 she founded Mouth of the Wolf Media - a production entity under which to produce these types of stories.
She is currently working on "The Cab," a fantasy short film about depression, as a creative activist under fiscal sponsorship from the Creative Visions Foundation. Her short film, "MNSTR" (pronounced Monster) opened a conversation about Panic and Anxiety, garnering festival and awards recognition, including Best New Filmmaker at the Jersey Shore Film Festival.
A graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts, she has since worked on productions for companies such as Martin Scorsese's Sikelia, HBO, Marvel, Netflix, Disney, NBC, FX and Vogue. Additionally, Nicole works as a mentor to emerging filmmakers through her company and NYU’s mentorship program.
