Nadia kick started her career with an experimental debut titled ‘Black Summer’ by The Pony Tales; a film album, which draws you into a world of love, lust and jealousy amongst a group of teenagers lost in the solitude and isolation of the Faroe Islands.
The film was chosen to open the 2010 Cph:Dox festival. She was then invited to host a live performance event at London’s Sketch art gallery in London, where it was further exhibited for three months.
Nadia’s debut established her as a film maker with a passion for marrying narrative with music. This instinctively led to a move into music videos where she worked with artists such as Years and Years, Emily Sande, Naughty Boy and The 1975.
A graduate of Central St Martins and Chris Palmer’s creative right hand in the Gorgeous glory days; Nadia’s visual style and conceptual approach earned her a variety of awards and nominations including MVA best new director and a Grammy for best video.
Her commercial projects including Ikea, Sleek, Danish Railway, continued to build on her passion for people, places and stories. Marrying the stark realism of authentic cast and captured moments with a love of photography and music, has become somewhat of a signature; as has her playful fascination with the awkward abandon of spontaneous dance….
Nadia was recently named one of ten female directors you need to know by Campaign magazine.
