Production / Post-House
We actively engage in co-production relationships with writers, producers, and friends throughout the world. Our core group of producers and storytellers are backed by a post production team to make our content. Out of house, we have an open mind, a loyal network of industry friends, and the drive to work hard, collaborate, and create breakthrough programming!
Stunning images don’t just happen; they are the result of preparation, vision, skill, and experience. In production, the director’s right hand or eye is the DP. With thousands of hours of footage under our belt we know how to get the most out of every shot. There is the talent of operator, the right choice of tools, location, on-camera talent and more. At NWD we have the unique combination of people, tools and experience to bring it all together.
In storytelling, “content is king”. In production, the director is a close second. It is the director’s job to make sure that entire project tells the story. Working with staff and out of house directors NWD will make sure your story gets told with passion and clarity.
What did he say?… Words you never want to hear when you are trying to tell your story. Just as important as the picture, the sound can make or break a production. At NWD we HEAR you and we make sure you can be HEARD. Hear the difference years of audio production experience makes.
