Nina's feature film script United, a feminist football underdog story, is currently in pre-production. Her focus now lies on the development of two feature films: the long overdue biopic about mod icon Steve Marriott and a revisionist Western.

A devoted music fan and musician herself, Nina also produced and directed a documentary about the vibrant mod scene in London today called We Are The Mods.

More recently she has made a name for herself performing all over Manchester and producing various music videos for exciting new artists. Her debut single Miss Naysmith and follow up single Internal Shelter Area was released in 2015 and has been played on ALL FM and Salford City Radio.

After being an active part of the live music and busking scene in Cardiff and London for several years, Nina finally arrived 'up North' in 2014 at the home of her musical heroes, such as OASIS and The Stone Roses. Her music can best be described as a mixture of Indie and Rock with a strong influence of British, Irish and American Folk music. Apart from her Manc idols, the Small Faces, Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Talk Talk and Kate Bush are amongst Nina’s main influences.

Nina's two singles Miss Naysmith and Internal Shelter Area can be downloaded from Amazon and iTunes and more of her songs can be found online at: http://www.reverbnation.com/ninagerstenberger
