Nina Fleck - Biography
from the Producer / Art Director section of
Octavia: Elegy for a Vampire (or Endless Shards of Jazz for a Brutal World) :
She feels the “independent film” has just become a marketing ploy and that very few people involved in filmmaking care about the art or have anything to say. She made her debut as a director in 2011 with “Gentrified Minds” – staging DLK’s poems and songs about gentrification – for the Downtown Urban Theater Festival. Since then she has been involved with various avant-garde projects, Shakespeare plays, and multi-media — with an emphasis on photographic images and its relation to text. Her sense of style and design has influenced the conception of Octavia as a film; Nina shall be bringing her classical sense and innate understanding of expressionism and nostalgia to the project. She is eager to collaborate with the contributing artists and the cinematographer as she navigates how to best help translate the director’s vision.
