Jodi Nelson 

Blue Morpho Films  |  Executive Producer

Hi, I’m Jodi. With an ability to use both left and right sides of my brain in equal proportion, I’m a passionate type-A creator who operates primarily from intuition.  With nearly 20 years experience as a Broadcast Line Producer, I excel at coming up with ideas (typically in my car), connecting the right people to the job, and executing ideas from concept to completion. With a focus in commercial, non-profit and global work, I have experience working with advertising agencies, production companies, corporations and advocacy groups alike. I’m also a creative collaborator and an international traveler.  From 2007-2012 I lead adventure travel tours around the world through my other company, PLAY it Forward Adventures. 

In 2013, I joined forces with documentary filmmakers Dominic Howes and Joel Weber of Minneapolis-based Rikshaw Films.  With a combined skill set and diverse breadth of experience, our team can take on almost anything.  Services include estimating, producing, directing, shooting and post production.  Rikshaw owns their own camera packages and edit suite, too. Though our specialty is taking a documentary approach to short form storytelling, we also produce branded content for clients such as Target and General Mills.

Whether you're in need of a Freelance Executive Producer or Line Producer in the Twin Cities - or a full production team - I'd love to hear from you.
