Danish Railway – #rideyoung
Nadia Marquard Otzen is a Danish film director working between London and Copenhagen. She credits her strong conceptual practice and unshakeable dedication to the core of an idea to her education at Central St. Martin’s School of Art and eight years working alongside renowned commercial director and founder of Gorgeous, Chris Palmer.
Prior to directing Nadia honed her craft in photography, an experience that has tended to bring a distinctive visual aesthetic to her projects. However, with a deep-rooted interest in storytelling and people’s lives, she always seeks to go beyond an entirely visual aesthetic to create work with a palpable human connection - further augmented by strong casting and an honest interpretation of the subject matter.
