Creative Production Company






Nadia Hallgren

Nadia Hallgren is a multi award-winning Director and Cinematographer. Nadia was raised in New York City and from a young age realized the power that film and photography have to shine a light on people who might otherwise be overlooked. Nadia rose fast in film, breaking long entrenched stereotypes to become one of the most sought after verité cinematographers with credits including Oscar nominated Trouble the Water, and Sundance nominated Motherland.

Her fearless determination and dedication to storytelling led to her directing, first with After Maria which personalizes the human suffering from Hurricane Maria and led to being shortlisted for an Academy Award, as well as She’s the Ticket about women running for local office which won Special Jury Prize at SXSW.  Nadia was tapped by First Lady Michelle Obama to make Becoming for Netflix. The film was nominated for four Emmys including Best Director, Best Cinematographer and Best Documentary Feature, with Nadia breaking an Emmy record as the first person to receive both Directing and Cinematography nominations for the same project. Becoming is ranked as the fifth most watched Documentary ever on Netflix. During the height of the pandemic, Nadia was tasked to shoot the documentary of the making of the Super Bowl Halftime Show featuring The Weeknd, garnering her Best Director at the Sundance Brand Storytelling Awards 2021. Nadia’s latest feature documentary Civil following Civil Rights Attorney Benjamin Crump as he represents the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor premiered at Tribeca Film Festival and was awarded NAACP Award for Best Documentary 2023.
