Led by filmmaker and producer Nikolas Strugar, Ravens At Odds works extensively within the architecture and creative industries,
Telling stories through film, photography, graphic design, web development and brand strategy
We aim to work with practices and people who through their work:
– Make meaningful contribution to one or many forms of sustainability; ecological, cultural, social, economic;
– Are engaged with the issues of housing affordability, housing diversity, or homelessness;
– Who seek to tell meaningful stories in a way that is honest and authentic;
– In an aesthetic that responds to the nature and context of each individual project, rather than commercial trends or hype
What our clients and partners think:
Creativity fused with pure passion is what you will get working with Nikolas. His eye for detail and capturing things that most people may not see is impressive. Nikolas’ style and ability to take a concept and turn it into a story has inspired us to readjust our own marketing style, and all from just one video
—Lisa Evans, National Marketing Manager, Place Design Group
It was fascinating to watch Nik interpret the architectural intentions of the project and create a visual narrative that really conveys what it’s like to be in and experience the house. His narratives explore the shifting qualities of spaces over time, and provide the perfect complement to the still photo sets we would traditionally have completed on our finished projects
—Justin Humphrey, Principal & Director Justin Humphrey Architect
Truly wonderful working with you—I am in awe of your multi-talents and creativity
—James Grose, Principal (former CEO) BVN Architecture
A filmmaker making architecture films is good, an architect making architecture films is better, and Strugar making ANY film is gold standard!
—Andrew Walsh, colleague
My career began in architecture, before a shift into film production. It’s with intimate knowledge and understanding of architecture that I approach filmmaking, and draw upon a visual language that relates to the project. I’ve developed aesthetic sensibilities and compositional skill in several design and production fields.
With this range of professional skills, Ravens At Odds has the necessary experience to produce bespoke creative solutions for your project.
