About Gracie Bellissimo
Freelance Filmmaker & Photographer
As a child, there was nothing Gracie enjoyed more than writing her own short stories and using her dad's camcorder to make mini-movies with her little sisters. Throughout her high school years, she delved deeper into her passion for filmmaking by immersing herself in her school's one-of-a-kind Academy of Media and Entertainment, whilst creating her own short films for festivals outside of school (click here for awards), and has even shadowed and assisted professional directors, writers, editors, and executive producers before graduating. After moving from LA to NYC for a semester of college, she has now relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and to study cinema at SFSU. Gracie is always looking for her next project or collaboration, so if you have an idea and would like to work with Gracie, please get in touch.
