Artclass Welcomes Award-Winning Director Fredgy Noel

Jun. 11, 2024

Next-gen production studio ArtClass Content has signed director Fredgy Noël for representation in the US. An award-winning writer and director known for her relatable, inclusive, female-focused stories, Noël balances narrative and documentary techniques to bring her filmmaking chops to vital non-profit organizations and global brands alike.

Noël’s work utilizes compelling visuals, rhythmic sounds, powerful graphics, and color grades, drawing on her background in dance to uncover the lyrical truth at the core of her stories. Exploring themes around women and marginalized voices, Noël’s films are an extension of how she sees the world in all its nuance, complexity, and beauty. She’s made moving call-to-action content for non-profits like Black Girls Rock and Planned Parenthood, and her esteemed branded clients include Doc Martens, Jergens, Vaseline, Warner Bros Discovery, MTV, VH1, BET, and NBCUniversal. The winner of a Clio Bronze and a Promax Gold award, Noël’s films have screened at numerous Academy Award-qualifying festivals and prestige film societies, including the Tribeca Film Festival, the British Film Institute, Outfest, DocNYC, and Bozar.

Noël spent her formative years in Haiti, Washington DC, and Miami, where filmmaking shaped her from an early age: she learned English from watching music videos in the late ‘80s and started working on original video treatments for songs as early as age 9. After college, she moved to New York City, where she worked at MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, and BET while discovering her life’s creative passion. She soon pivoted her focus to writing and directing short films and documentaries and pursued an MFA from Hunter College’s Integrated Media Arts program. She’s currently a graduate student at NYU’s prestigious Kanbar Institute of Film and Television.

Noël on joining the company’s roster said:

“Passion is something that cannot be faked, and the authenticity I find in the team at ArtClass is rare. ArtClass’ work is so sharp from a visual and narrative perspective, and the people here are straightforward and inspired – they genuinely care about the campaigns they’re creating. These attributes matter to me, and I want the people representing me to share these values.”

 

ArtClass Managing Director Kirsten Arongino added:

"Fredgy is as real as they come. Her work is versatile, grounded, and shot through with emotionality – it really stays with you. We had to have her on our roster, and we look forward to supporting her as she brings her powerful storytelling talent to our esteemed clients and brands."
