BROKEN PICTURES // NIKO BIKIALO // GREGORY DE MARIA //
FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY
Broken Pictures is an independent production company that specializes in emotional storytelling and existential filmmaking.
Founders Niko Bikialo and Gregory de Maria share a uniquely European sensibility derived from complimentary disciplines: writing and music composition constitute Bikialo’s realm, while de Maria focuses on conceptualization, art direction and cinematography.
The company’s ‘modus operandi’ is simple: to take on work that Bikialo and de Maria love and find aesthetically interesting. Their passion is the art of filmmaking. While the team may be small, their ideas are grand – and rooted in the avant-garde. Projects are derived from a range of sources, including film, photography, painting, philosophy, poetry, and music.
Broken Pictures’ palette is diverse; its methodology, versatile. Adaptation comes easily to Bikialo and de Maria, as does the development of original concepts and stories. From music videos and short films to features, documentaries and commercials, the pictures they make are always beautifully broken.
