Hi, I'm Nicole Sanacore
I'm originally from Long Island, New York but moved to the Charlotte, NC area about 10 years ago. In May 2019, I earned my B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.My educational background in English as well as my professional experience have given me excellent communication skills across a variety of mediums. I have experience managing social media accounts, utilizing SEO to optimize website traffic and increase customer engagement and sales, and writing and editing articles, manuals, scripts, memos, research papers, and training materials.I regularly use Canva to create social media posts as well as other graphic design endeavors. I have edited and managed website content for employers as well. Along with this, I have experience with video and audio editing.I strive for my work to be accessible, and make sure to include alternative text for any images in my work. From August 2021 to May 2022, I took American Sign Language courses at Central Piedmont Community College as a part-time student.In my free time, I love listening to records (I have over 150), playing Animal Crossing, reading biographies, watching horror movies, and going to museums and coffee shops with my friends. I also love to travel, and my dream trip is to go to Sydney, Australia. I have 2 dogs named Jack and Cooper!
The following links will bring you to various articles and projects I've worked on through the years. If you'd like any further examples or information, feel free to contact me.
I use Medium to publish longer articles related to pop culture and media criticism, which I research and edit myself. I published my first article on Medium in June 2021. One of my articles, In Defense of Kay Corleone was a featured article in Google News' algorithm, in early January 2022 (over a month after I had originally published the article) bringing thousands of views to the article in a matter of days. It is now one of the top Google search results for the character, appearing on the first page of results for "Kay Corleone The Godfather."
Rianne Pictures is a UK-based film and media company dedicated to promoting women and nonbinary filmmakers across the world. They host their annual hallmark film festival, Women X Film Festival, which highlights short films across genres made by women and nonbinary filmmakers across the world.As a member of the editorial team, I conduct interviews with filmmakers to promote their work, especially up and coming filmmakers on the festival circuit.
Scratch Cinema is a film and TV review site dedicated to providing a platform for diverse voices to contribute to discussions on cinema. I wrote for Scratch Cinema as a staff writer from September 2019 until June 2022.Scratch Cinema has been having issues with its web hosting and as a result, articles are inaccessible. I've made a selection of the articles I've written available here. If you'd like to read more, please contact me.
Wasteland Arts is a monthly film newsletter which focuses on film analysis, with different themes for each issue. I contributed to February 2022 - Issue #23 "One Shot". This theme focuses on one defining shot from a film. I wrote about The Florida Project (2017), a film which follows children who live in motels in the Orlando, Florida area.
I also contributed to May 2022 - Issue #26 "Journeys" where I wrote about Martin Scorsese's dark comedy After Hours (1985) and how it utilizes the hero's journey template to explore the eccentric energy of lower Manhattan in the 1980s through its "yuppie" protagonist.
