Nika Offenbac is a Creative Producer who backs up leadership skills with advanced technical know-how in production and post. Equally comfortable managing the demands of multiple departments, or ‘shooting from the hip’ in the field; her award-winning body of work spans documentary, animation, and experiential design – from film to television and digital content.
Nika thinks storytelling can change the world and is not afraid to put herself on the front lines. Along with director Jessica Vale, she produced and shot the hard-hitting documentary feature film ‘Small Small Thing’ about child rape in Liberia.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the film went on to win over 12 festival awards on the international circuit, receiving excellent media attention with television show appearances for Nika and Jessica [MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry Show, & WABC NY’s Weekend Morning Show] and reviews in The New York Times, Indiewire, and Huffington Post. The film was a One World Media Award finalist. Most importantly ‘Small Small Thing’ led to debates within the Liberian community about the issue.
Nika continues to make social justice films including directing a short film for the 2014 “Not So Super” Super Bowl campaign to raise awareness of human trafficking, and most recently a documentary about eviction in NY city’s housing courts. In 2015, she executive produced and directed , a 6 part documentary series about the global evolution of electronic dance music for MTV World.
