Nina McNeely joins directors roster at UnderWonder

Acclaimed director and choreographer Nina McNeely, who has directed and choreographed music videos for Miguel, black midi, Fergie and the recent Doja Cat video for Paint The Town Red, has now joined the roster of creative talent at UnderWonder Content.

McNeely is a multi-talented artist who has gained a stellar reputation for the visceral and vibrant style of her choreography, working with the likes of Björk, Gaspar Noé (on his movie Climax), The Weeknd, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith, Alicia Keyes, Pharrell, and most recently, with Tinashe.

She worked as the choreographer for HBO’s The Idol, starring The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, where she also served as on-screen talent, playing the choreographer within the show itself. Her TED Talk, Once There Was III, is a symphony of live-projection mapping set on three dancers to create a unique surrealist landscape.

McNally's deep understanding of choreography works to her advantage as a director; her elegant camera work is able to zero in on and capture moments of storytelling within dance and movement-focused film. She was nominated for a UKMVA for her brilliant video for black midi's John L in 2021.

“There’s truly no one like her - Nina is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music videos and a thought leader in reconceptualizing what film can do,” says Ivanna Borin, executive producer of UnderWonder. “She’s talented in an immeasurable amount of ways, and we look forward to elevating her voice and giving it an even larger audience at UnderWonder.”

Nina McNally adds: “Everyone I’ve met at UnderWonder has been a taste-maker in their own right. I find that forward, boundary-pushing appetite for creativity very exciting and inspiring to work with. With what I want to do in my career and the reach I want, they’re the perfect partners as I take this next step in my creative life.”

McNally joins an esteemed roster of directors at UnderWonder, creating award-winning commercials and music videos. The LA-based company is nominated in four categories at this year’s MTV VMAs, with Tanu Muiño for Best Director and Video of the Year for her Doja Cat's Attention video. This marks the third year in a row she’s been nominated for both categories.
