“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."
