Who we are...


City Video is a brand new video production company run by two urban professional artists with combined backgrounds in dance, theater, music, film and, yes, even mime. We're into vagabonding, Korean food, and LOVE cities. Between us we've lived in Rome, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Paris, Lagos, Casablanca, London, Hamburg, and, for the past 12 years we've made the Big Apple our home. We love the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that surrounds us in the city and the awesome constellation of unique small businesses in every borough and neighborhood, and we are dedicated to celebrating and promoting the thousands of little stories that help make this town great! With love, Nathan and Megumi

NATHAN Believe it or not - Nathan's "film school" was an intensive 5 year study of Mime in Paris and London! Learning from legend Marcel Marceau and other great physical actors taught him to think in pictures and images which naturally led on to an interest in filmmaking. For the past 18 years he's done everything from shooting big rock concerts in Lisbon to hauling camera equipment through the Sahara for an African travel series to making docs about the downtown dance scene in New York

MEGUMI was determined to become a ballerina from the age of 5. Sure enough, at 17 she was invited to join the Hamburg Ballet and spent the next decade performing all over Europe. When she moved to New York, she started incorporating multimedia into her shows, and that's when she discovered that she has a knack for shooting and editing. She loves the process of refining and polishing films in the edit suite and has no plans to stop dancing, either.

Check out this short film which tells you a little about Megumi's dance career and of course the film is made by Nathan!
