Nicole Maria Ackermann joins Romance

Romance has some fresh blood. Nicole Maria Ackermann has joined our stable of directors alongside Greg Gray, Terence Neale and Jabu Nadia Newman, bringing a fresh and unique voice to the diverse directorial team.
Nicole is able to apply her detail-focused and imaginative storytelling to a wide variety of creative projects.

"It’s amazing to have the support of a creative family who are uncompromising on achieving the highest standards of production”, says Nicole, “I can really focus on the thing that matters most... filmmaking - crafting ideas to their best possible outcome. I’m really excited to be here."

After cutting her teeth in the worlds of advertising and creative research, Nicole established herself as young director to watch through her work as part of the directorial duo PHI. Since going soIo, Nicole has gone on to direct a number of international commercials in her own right including, Samsung, American Airlines and The Economist.

"We are very happy to welcome Nicole", agrees the Romance team of directors and producers, “She’s an extraordinary talent with a strong conceptual and visual approach. Her films are not only beautiful, they also have an emotional honesty that is rare quality in a commercial films director."
