Nicola’s most recent directing work is the film ‘Treasure’, commissioned through the BBC’s Culture in Quarantine programme and now available on the BBC’s iPlayer. She previously made her mark as a director on her 2017 short ‘Prawn’, which, with a cast and crew of over a hundred people, was shot in two days.

She started her career as an actor, appearing as a resident character in ‘Home and Away’ and other productions for BBC, as well as for Channel 7 and Channel 9 in Australia, and went on to write, produce and direct numerous short films under her production banner, Rocket Room.

As a screenwriter, she has had scripts picked up by the USA’s Red List, Wescreenplay, and Global Genesis, and she’s also developing a cross-genre thriller/sci-fi/crime series for television called ‘Combustione’.

Nicola is based in London and available for work worldwide.
