Alice Plati is a New York City-based filmmaker and photographer. Her love for image-making began in high school, where she’d document her friends in New York with a 35mm analog camera. She received her BFA in Film/Video with a minor in photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art in the spring of 2015, where she won a competitive grant for her thesis film and was awarded departmental recognition for excellence.
Her work has been published on multiple online platforms including The New Yorker, NOWNESS, Vice, i-D, Dazed, and TIDAL. She primarily works as a DP, camera operator, and editor, but is always thrilled to take on the role as director. She will be working as Director of Photography in the Fall for a narrative short film directed by Pauline Chalamet.
Her favorite part about her job is that everyday is different. She’s been given the opportunity to work in a broad range of genres from commercial documentaries to music videos. Since graduating, Alice has also worked internationally with clients across Europe and most recently, South Africa. Her attraction to the physicality of filmmaking stems from her background as a gymnast, soccer player, and a black-belt in mixed martial arts.
