Each Show has a unique remit so the team of trusted colleagues is chosen according to the brief with Nina leading the team as either Video & Projection Designer or Specialist Creative Director to provide a seamless and simple production workflow in the complex world of live content. Her approach is designed to be highly scalable so as to provide for shows ranging the smaller theatrical workshop end of the spectrum to the large scale, high profile show.

The studio is based in London but due to the nature of the Theatre and Event remit, she has a fully functioning mobile content production studio set-up ready to go on site as required. 

Recently, Nina and her team have created work for the imeersive-promenade production Alice’s Adventures Undergound (Les Enfants Terribles / Emma Brünjes Productions) at the Waterloo VaultsUsagi Yojimbo at Southwark Playhouse, The Merchant of Venice at the Almeida.

Other Theatrical work includes projection design for Analogue’s devised production of ‘Sleepless‘; The Energy Show Live at the Science Museum in London and on tour; Glyndebourne Festival’s La Traviata and ‘Hippolyte et Aricie‘; Gounod’s ‘Faust’ at the Mariinsky Theatre, working with Ian Galloway; Puccini’s ‘La Bohème’ (WNO), Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman (ENO); Lloyd Webber’s Phantom Of The Opera (UK Tour); ‘Aida’ (Raymond Gubbay, RAH); Cleopatra (Northern Ballet), Ibsen’s‘Emperor and Galilean‘ in a new version by Ben Power (National Theatre) and the Mariinsky Theatres recent production of Britten’s opera, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which won the Zolotoy Sofit award for Best Opera and was shortlisted for 7 Golden Mask Awards

Nina led the creative video design for all of Secret Cinema’s immersive productions in 2014 including ‘Back To The Future’, Grand Budapest Hotel  launch event, Miller’s Crossing andWho Framed Rodger Rabbit.
