Welcome to NERD! We are delighted to hear about your ambition to have a beautiful approach to people’s bodies and as it happens we have just the right NERD to bring this film to life in a stylish and authentic visual approach.
Award-winning director Cherish Oteka, exudes a passion for crafting films and content that challenge false narratives and deliver a platform for often-marginalised and under-represented communities. Her style of producing impactful visuals allows for on camera talent, whoever they may be ( a celebrity influencer, musician, vocal artist or real people), to share their intimate stories, on their terms and therefore conveying authentic messages.
Cherish is prestigiously known for her influence in talent schemes such as Edinburgh TV Festival’s ‘Ones to Watch’, Sheffield Doc Fest's Doc/Next and The Grierson Trust's DocLab. She has worked with a range of well-known brands including London Live, SBTV, Tate, Stonewall, BBC Three and BBC One.
We are a creative production studio representing a diverse range of hand-picked directors and illustrators, crafting live-action, animation, mixed-media and illustration styles for TVCs, online content, OOH/DOOH and more.
We strongly believe that nurturing talent and championing diversity are the key ingredients to producing powerful visuals that stand out,engage and communicate with audiences across the world. That's why we are active diversity & inclusion advocates, constantly seeking, nurturing and empowering young talent, female talent and talent from under-represented backgrounds changing and reshaping our industry to be a more diverse and inclusive one, today, tomorrow and for future creative generations to come!
