Crimson Black Productions is the brainchild of Writer, Director and Editor, Elcid Asaei. Born out of his passion for films and filmmaking, the label develops and produces diverse visual content that ranges from music videos and films, to client-specific promos, showreels and corporate packages.
Passionate about communicating stories visually, Elcid followed his Master’s degree in Film Studies at UCL with a spell in journalism and photography, before making his filmmaking début with the award-winning short documentary film ‘Revolutionary Roads’, which premiered at Sheffield DocFest and went on to win the Current TV ‘Short Cuts’ prize in 2012.
2019 proved a big year for Crimson Black Productions, with the completion of ambitious short film ‘UNSKIN’, alongside pre-production on a number of other projects, including a unique animated feature film (‘The Cage’), and a feature length neo-horror thriller (‘Second Coming’).

Nadina started her career in performing arts, appearing in theatre productions that ranged contemporary dance and narrative pieces. Her promising career was abruptly interrupted by the war in her native Bosnia, which led to her migration to the UK.
Following this, Nadina’s priorities evolved into the field of journalism, because she wanted to relay the story of the war for future generations. This eventually led her towards the field of foreign affairs with an apprenticeship at CNN, followed by work in the newsrooms of CNBC and Fox Business Network – producing LIVE and breaking news stories in the field and studio environment, as well as commissioning and editing packages.
Currently, Nadina’s career has expanded towards video production, which includes client specific promotional videos that range corporate and commercial packages. She has also gone on to produce LIVE stream shows on UK startups, and LIVE coverage from various events.
Nadina’s broad experiences make her an essential asset to video production of short and long-form feature packages, as well as live anchoring.
