“Life Boat”, which premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival in 2017, marks writer/director Lorraine Nicholson’s third short film. Nicholson’s first short, “The Instant Message”, explores teenage sexuality in the internet age.  Her second short “This Magic Moment” depicts the unconventional love between a movie star and her stalker. Also in 2017, she was selected to participate in AFI's Directing Lab for Women.

In the digital space, Nicholson brought her fresh perspective to a music video for up-and-coming artist Hana, a trio of feminist stop-motion videos she co-directed for Grammy-nominated artist Tommy Trash/s “Luv U Giv" EP, a dance video “Strangers” featuring spectacular talent Lil Buck and most recently a video for Grammy-nominated K. Flay.  She also worked as a staff writer on Bret Easton Ellis’s “The Deleted.”  Additional writing and directing credits include “R.I.P.,” an eight-episode web series on Blumhouse’s CrypTV, which champions new voices in filmmaking. 

In addition, Nicholson has honed her filmmaking skills working on-camera as an actress for ten years. Her wide range of credits include the feature films “Click” with Adam Sandler, “Soul Surfer” with Helen Hunt and Bobcat Goldthwait’s “World’s Greatest Dad”.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nicholson graduated from Brown University in 2012.
