UnderWonder has signed Nina McNeely to their roster of talent. Known for her visceral and electric style, McNeely has choreographed and directed some of the most significant pieces in pop culture today, marking her as a prominent force within our culture at large.

The multi-talented artist is revered for her work as a director, choreographer, animator, and visual artist, frequently combining mediums to create daring and opulent imagery. McNeely directed and choreographed Doja Cat’s music video for Paint the Town Red, lending the song her trademark rowdy and alluring style. She worked as the choreographer for HBO’s The Idol, starring The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, where she also served as on-screen talent, playing the choreographer within the show itself. Her TED Talk Once There Was III is a symphony of live-projection mapping set on three dancers to create a unique surrealist landscape.

McNeely's point of view lenses the connection and chemistry between people as an immeasurable force containing infinite energetic potential. Her deep understanding of choreography works to her advantage as a director; her elegant camera work is able to zero in on and capture moments of storytelling within dance and movement-focused film.
