Raunkiaer Films was founded British-Danish film director, Nicholas Hulbert. Nicholas has since directed a number of award-winning short films, with a particular interest in the perspective period and fantastical dramas can offer on everyday life. He is currently working on 'Gesualdo', a fantastical dark-comedy/horror which uses a Faustian bargain of flesh for musical inspiration to explore questions of creative mediocrity and toxic masculinity, as well as very early development on several feature projects. Outside of film, he has a passion for history, immersive theatre, and theoretical physics, in which he holds an M.Sci., M.A. Cantab degree from the University of Cambridge.
The name Raunkiaer comes from a Danish surname, from the words for "raven" and "village pond". In Norse mythology, the ravens Hugin and Munin acted as Odin's spies, bringing him information from the four corners of the Earth. Like the English village green, a kjaer carries a deep emotional resonance. Like our namesakes, we hope that our films encourage you to respond both emotionally and intellectually to the world around us.
