Nic is a Philippine filmmaker based in New York, where she is currently pursuing an MFA at Columbia University’s Film Program.
She is the current recipient of the Breaking Barriers Award for Female Directors and winner of an Adobe Design Achievement Award for Film & Video.
A former New York Women in Film & Television Scholarship Awardee, she was raised on fairy tales, myths, and monster movies;
stories that elevated life and bridged the boundary between consciousness and dreaming, fantasy, realism, and the darker recesses of human nature.
Her script Changelings was a finalist at the Bluecat Screenplay Competition, and her short film The Speed of Light premiered as Official Selection at the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival. She is currently in post-production of her most recent film Knights in Newark, which is the recipient of a 2017 Alfred P. Sloan Production Grant.
Reeling from a broken relationship with her estranged physicist father, a daughter is charged with making a decision that will change her family forever.

A hard worker who knows no shortcuts, Nic Yulo always works as efficiently and effectively as possible. She is not afraid to experiment with new trends, but can easily adjust to classic styles and methods. And the results are never a disappointment. She is a joy to work with, as she listens, she follows, she suggests, she innovates, and she truly cares for the output she creates.Carmen Silverio-Roxas - Editorial Director, GeiserMaclang

I can say with confidence that Nic has a bright future of innovation ahead of her. I look forward to following her blossoming career.Anna Gadzinski - Former Client
