"As a Director of Photography I have had the pleasure of capturing the performances of many actors in my career.
It is always delightful to see performances firsthand that draw you in and create a veil of fantasy to create a character and a mood in an environment that were previously only on paper.
Working with Nicole Fong on "Dark Truths" was just such an experience. Her talent for creating a compelling character and maintaining total attention to the performance is truly amazing.
Nicole is a professional, she is a beauty, and she brings her characters to life with tremendous clarity. Nicole is also a delight to work with and always comes prepared ready to work.
As a Director of Photography, she is easy to light and shoot and she looks great from all angles. The best way to shoot a beautiful shot is to start with a beautiful woman. The best way to get a great performance is start with a talented actress.
Nicole Fong is a name we will see in the future as she is an actress both, beautiful and talented."

"The role of Melinda was originally written as an African-American female. That was until Nicole Fong came in to audition. When intuition kicked in and we had her read for the role with Demarco, the emotional chemistry was tangible in the air. So much so that she won the role and Melinda was rewritten as an Asian-American female which brought greater depth of meaning to the character and some of the visual imagery of the movie."
Rebecca Withey, Casting Director
"Dark Truths" Movie
"Nicole was an absolute pleasure to work with on set. Not only is she super talented and able to take direction well, but she is just a fun person to be around. In commercials, it sometimes gets to be more technical than performance driven, and Nicole took the notes and delivered a fantastic performance every single time. I look forward to collaborating with her on more narrative work down the road!"
Dan Hertzog, Director of Photography/Owner
In the Wee Hours
"Nicole is a phenomenal performer. She comes to set incredibly well prepared and wonderfully enthusiastic for the work, but there's much, much more there.
In each scene she manages to bring an extra flair to her characters. It's that intangible quality that brings her roles to life in a unique way; a small toss of the head or roll of the eyes, combined with an authentic delivery adds that rare spark.
As an editor too, I'm constantly grateful for her genuine reactions to her opposing actor's lines. She's a dream to direct and to edit!"
Anthony Dolan, Director/Editor
"Nicole's professionalism and natural talent in front of the camera, along with her infectious likability is only equaled by her beauty and poise. Nicole would be a wonderful addition to any production."
Bruce Coykendall, Producer
"Nicole is an absolute joy to work with. She turned in a pitch perfect performance, and brought a level of professionalism and humor to set that made our long shoot days fun and productive. She was just as happy to jump in and move a light or c-stand as she was to chime in on the composition of a particular shot or flow of a scene. Looking forward to working with her again!”
