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 an independent creative director specializing in film production and graphic design. 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. Chris has shot, edited and produced documentary films that have been featured on networks like VICELAND, Nat Geo and NBC Universal. Between films, Chris also works as a freelance editor and cinematographer.



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.
