Welcome Kristen!

Updated: Dec 14, 2022



Hi, I’m Kristen! I'm the newest member of staff at Nomadic. I am joining the team as a producer.

In a very fitting fashion, I come from quite a nomadic background! Originally from California, I spent a lot of my formative years growing up in Thailand, where I started working at a TV studio as a teenager and fell in love with all things filmmaking. I especially enjoyed editing, and have always been fascinated by how much the edit can shape an entire project. After setting off on a new adventure and moving to the UK, I studied Film Production at uni, then worked as a freelance editor and colourist on loads of different types of projects, from documentaries to short films to feature films. I found it really enjoyable, but missed the collaborative aspect of having a creative team around me. I joined a production company in Cheltenham and quickly worked my way up from Junior Editor to Lead Editor. I made a real effort to get stuck in to every aspect that I possibly could. I loved putting in place organisational processes, being a part of pre-production brainstorming sessions, talking to the filmmakers about what they would shoot on the day and going on set as much as I possibly could. I worked on loads of projects that involved live editing with clients on location while filming was taking place, and thrived in a fast-paced environment, while always making sure to add some creative flair! I grew a lot as an editor as well, and worked on some really fun and challenging projects such as a six episode web series and multiple TV ads. I had a bit of a light bulb moment last year when I realised that all of my favourite projects were the ones where I was involved in overseeing the entire process, so actually being a producer might be a more fitting role for me, although editing will always have a special place in my heart. In fact, I’m finding that my editing background actually helps me to be a better producer, because as I’m pre-production planning and when I’m on set, I’m always thinking about what will work best in the edit. After six years at my previous company, I decided it was time to broaden my horizons and take on new challenges, and I ended up at Nomadic Creatives! I’ve been at Nomadic for a little over 2 months now and have really hit the ground running! I fit right in to the team as they’re all so supportive, creative and collaborative. I felt right at home here immediately, and I’ve already worked on so many incredible projects, travelled hundreds of miles and met so many new people. My favourite project so far has been the Christmas ad we produced for the Icon Shopping Centre at the O2 Arena, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it! Looking forward, I’m so happy to continue being part of the Nomadic team, pushing boundaries and always raising the bar on quality. We’ve got really exciting plans for next year and I can’t wait!
