While at Michigan, my goals of expanding beyond theatre brought me to study video and film both in the School of Art and Design and the School of Film, Television, and Media. Gaining experience from working on student films both on and off screen, my passion for the form led to the creation of my senior thesis film, Disrupted. Most recently, I directed a short film entitled Cycle, which is currently in the post-production stage. 
Cycle, 2023
Cycle is a 9-minute short film written by Amber Akhtar, following the story of a young woman who tries to wash out a blood stain after an abortion. Shot over three nights in Brooklyn with a women-led team, directing and editing this film was an affirming professional welcome to the world of indie film. 
More to come soon.

Disrupted, 2022
Disrupted is a one-woman experimental film about the loss of my father to suicide. The 35-minute short film is divided into 10 unique chapters that explore the multifaceted perspectives on mental health and grief. This work was developed over the course of a year as my thesis which I wrote, designed, directed, performed, and edited. 
The full film is available upon request: nicoledwhite99@gmail.com.

Multiverse Media was a student organization focused on artistic collaboration across the UMich campus toward the filming of a 4 part web series. I was cast in the third installment, linked below.
