Established in 1996, Nomad is an award-winning organization that provides creative development, strategy, production, editing and finishing. Our unique business model allows a core team of veterans to run the business. We have a deep network of writers, art directors, designers, strategists and film directors across the country who we bring in on projects based on client needs. So, clients only pay for what they need and they always get senior talent and industry expertise.

Having experts from all functions around the table at the start of a project allows Nomad to offer carefully considered solutions and the highest quality creative product. Involving directors, editors, VFX artists and sound designers at the beginning of a project means doing it the right way the first time.
