With that philosophy in mind, creative founders, Kashka Glowacka, Chris Rahm, and Devin Pickering came together in the winter of 2016 to form Northguild Production.

Previously independent freelancers, with decades of experience as a springboard, we understood that our skills and talents are stronger, and the project more efficient, when working as a committed team, sharing an intimate language and a common goal. That intimacy extends beyond our core to every client and fellow filmmaker coming on board to deliver their story’s message. Our holistic approach to filmmaking ensures that the intention and power of the story is never lost.



Chris is a born and bred Hudson Valley filmmaker. He brings 20 years of experience with him and complements his design skill set with an ability to produce sharp, effective film projects for commercial, creative and advocacy applications. Over the last decade, Chris has documented the Hudson Valley environmental movement through his close involvement with Jon Bowermaster’s Oceans 8 Films, helping to conceive their award winning Hudson River Stories film project, lending his skills as a director, cinematographer and editor across the still ongoing 16 part series. Chris enjoys imparting his skills and experience to others by also serving as an educator for Stockadeworks. His work has been featured on networks like VICELAND, Nat Geo and NBC Universal and Netflix.



Whether it’s been from behind the camera or in the editing suite, Devin Pickering has spent the past 20 years telling stories. While past work has been seen on PBS, CNN, ESPN, and FOX television networks, Devin has put an emphasis on films relating to the environment, collaborating with Oscar nominee Robert Stone on Pandora’s Promise, earning the Green Award at the Sheffield Intl. Documentary Film Festival in 2013. Most recently, Devin has contributed cinematography and editing for Oceans 8 Films Dear President Obama (Viceland), and the ongoing documentary web series Hudson River Stories.



Kashka has over 17 years experience in the entertainment field from Producing Independent Feature and Short Films to Documentaries and Commercials. In her capacity as a film Producer she has overseen productions from New York City to LA.

Her skills are refined from years on set as a 1st AD and UPM and therefore bring the combined experience of overseeing production administration and knowing how a set should be run. Kashka considers her forte to be in tight budget control, organizing highly skilled cooperative crews, and coming in the budget and on schedule.
