Hey there! My name is Nathan Russell, I'm a creative professional with 15 years of industry experience across digital, broadcast, feature films, and new media (including live-streaming & VR).
I'm a filmmaker and comedian, with a passion for interactivity, improvisation, experimentation, and creative collaboration.
I started my career from the Editor's chair, cutting everything from viral videos to feature films, including several episodes of the hit Animal Planet show Too Cute(watching footage of cute kittens all day is pretty much the best gig you can find).
From 2015-2018, I ran Don't Think Productions, the digital & TV production arm of the Upright Citizens Brigade. While there, I led development, creative & production teams in work for brands, agencies, networks, and platforms from ideation to final delivery. I was the Executive Producer of 400+ digital sketches, 60+ livestream comedy shows, and the Showrunner for multiple original series including The Adventures of Young Hillary (Above Average) UCB-IRL (Fusion) and UCB Innovation Inc (Nerdist/Legendary Digital Networks).
In 2019, I launched HAMMOND HILL MEDIA, a full-service production company and creative studio.
