We are so happy to welcome Nina Holmgren to SMUGGLER.
⁠⠀
Nina is an award-winning director. With a background in fine arts, documentary, and as a former champion athlete, she is a unique filmmaker with a distinctive voice. Her work is contemporary, emotional, and powerful. The sensibility and curiosity of stories and human-beings is hard to miss in her films. With strong ties to the fashion world, she has a remarkable eye to combine storytelling and aesthetic expression in her work to create her own heightened surreality.
⁠⠀
⁠”I’m very excited to be joining the SMUGGLER family. The opportunity to get to work with such a progressive company, that aren’t afraid of bold, visionary ideas, and who strives for high level craftsmanship, just feels like the perfect place for pushing the boundaries of storytelling." - Nina

WAIT

We are proud to share new director Samantha Scaffidi’s PSA “Wait,” produced in partnership with @RAINN and @droga5 to help bring attention and a sense of urgency to the plight and obstacles facing survivors of sexual assault. Samantha Scaffidi brings a quiet yet searingly powerful and uncomfortable truth to the film.⁠
⁠⠀
Wait gives viewers an intimate perspective into the experience of sexual assault survivors as they wait to receive a forensic exam (commonly referred to as a r**e kit). Due to a shortage of nurses trained to collect forensic evidence, survivors may have to travel long distances to find a hospital that provides this service; some are forced to wait hours for an exam. This powerful PSA shows the impact that this nurse shortage has on survivors of sexual violence and why it's so important for Congress to pass the Survivors’ Access to Supportive Care Act (SASCA) which will improve access to critical care for survivors.

Happy Hollidays. Smuggler friends, Last night I opened a thank you card from Smuggler. A Thank you for being part of a project. Please know I am extremely grateful and touched by that card. Having been in this commercial business for as long as I have, I have never been thanked By a production company. Silly as it seems it’s like winning an award to me. I will keep it around for a long time as a reminder that helping a Director, or a Company with something that is important to them doesn’t go unnotice. You Guys are a class act. Thank You!
