WE'VE WORKED WITH:
"NORTH + NOMAD is a tiny team producing high-quality content that a larger production company would charge significantly more for. They were efficient with resources, professional, and dedicated to producing a brand video that far surpassed our expectations. The editing rounds were so minimal as they really delivered on quality, innovative storytelling while grasping and understanding the needs of our brand. We were thrilled from start to finish… beginning with the collaborative conceptual creative development to the refined expert post-production. They made me feel deeply connected to the work and to their passion all the while making the process fun. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to do it all over again."
“Not only did Simon and Karen plan this complicated shoot, including permits, locations, talent, props, etc., all from the opposite coast, they handled all the editing, coloring, and sound design as well. The result? An industry leading 2:00 minute brand video that has deepened our relationship with our client and effectively exceeded all initial client goals and expectations. Outside of the technical expertise and professionalism that NORTH + NOMAD brought to the project, they were fun to work with. Anyone who’s been through a shoot of this magnitude knows how important it is to like the people you’re working with—they become your family for the duration of the project. Simply put, Simon and Karen are people you’ll want to get to know on a deeper level."
