About Us

niknok-logo-hzNIK NOK MEDIA

Amanda Konkin founded Nik Nok Media as an outlet for producing interesting, creative and cost efficient productions that challenge traditional modes of artistic creation. Nik Nok Media aims to integrate aspects of theatre, film, and digital media in interesting ways and is driven by the desire to rethink the boundaries of art.  As an avid supporter of independent artistic productions Nik Nok Media believes that the rich array of enthusiastic and creative talent in the city of Vancouver makes it an ideal place to develop new material and hopes to bring these ideals forward into all of their future projects.

If you have an idea for a creative project we would love to hear from you. Besides our own work, we thrive on the ability to collaborate and support local projects so please contact us!
