NBC Left Field is a new internationally-minded video troupe that makes short, creative docs and features, all designed for social media and set-top boxes.

Our small team of cinematographers, journalists, animators and social media gurus aims to unearth stories and breathe creative life into current headlines.

Half the unit hails from outside the US, so we’ll be pushing boundaries at home and abroad while acting as an experimental NBC hub for style, treatment and audience engagement.
