BROKEN PICTURES // NIKO BIKIALO // GREGORY DE MARIA //
CO-FOUNDER/DIRECTOR/VFX CREATIVE DIRECTOR
For five years, de Maria studied in prestigious Parisian art schools before moving to NYC where he started his promising career at age 22. His experience ranges from designing posters and graphics for the French film industry to conceptualizing ambitious visual effects for commercial campaigns and music videos at cutting-edge creative studios like Attik and Resident.
Ever inspired by abstract expressionism, de Maria explores the various states of the human condition through experimental film. Regardless of the project’s scope, his focus remains on the details as well as the concepts at large.
These past ten years of post-production work prepared de Maria for his transition to the directing world as he shot a variety of projects, from commercials to music videos. It was only a matter of time until de Maria and longtime friend Bikialo decided to start their own production company, Broken Pictures.
