"Our students at Fairleigh Dickinson University - all of our students, not just Film majors - benefitted from and enjoyed Nicole Franklin’s appearance. Not only does Nicole have a fresh perspective to share in regards to her experiences as a producer and director, and she does so in a knowledgable way and with a manner and approach that makes hearing from her fun and participatory! I know that many of us (myself included) plan to stay in touch with Nicole, will make sure to watch more of her work, and wish her much continued success. -Howard Libov, Professor of Film.
