For Stacy Nimmo, video has a unique appeal. It captures the key parts of communication that words leave behind, which carries a deeper significance for Stacy. He had a rather unconventional youth, traveling around the world with his family. His parents would teach in far off university campuses and then travel the world during the summer.
Before the time of online translators, non–verbal communication was the only thing he could rely on. A smile or a grimace was enough communication to get things started. Today, this form of non-verbal communication is just as effective as it has always been and is the driving force in Stacy’s creative process.
After studying art history then film at Parsons in New York, he was fortunate enough to land a job a Miramax Films where he got to put his non-verbal fluency to the test trying to figure out what the heck Bob and Harvey Weinstein were talking about. This carried over into crafting their vision into elaborate marketing campaigns for their fledging films from Cinema Paradiso to Pulp Fiction.
