I'M NATHAN MENNEL
LET'S MAKE SOMETHING
A collection of past work.
Opportunities to showcase your skills can be hard to come by for High School football players in the Midwest. Jake Sharp decided to change that by hosting an annual football combine where young players can receive verified combine scores to share with prospective teams in their recruitment journey. This was a one man band project that I produced, shot, and edited.

I'm a freelance producer, videographer, and editor based in Kansas City.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT ME
I'm good with people. Whether I'm working with a friend, CEO, or a famous athlete, I enjoy the team sport that is video production. I have fun creating things and it shows.
After earning a degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas, I joined a large advertising agency in Kansas City where I worked on the production of commercial video content. It was a great experience that really taught me how to work with everyone from creative directors to clients in order accomplish everyone's goals. More importantly, it taught me how to make the process fun instead of the stressful mess that can easily come from a mountain of edits from different perspectives. Shortly after, I joined a production company creating features for ESPN, Uninterrupted, and Bleacher Report and more. We specialized in having a lean and efficient crew. I was primarily a camera operator and 1st AC but usually had a hand in anything from pre to post-production.
