Nikkita Punia

Shooting Producer, Freelance

Ones to Watch 2023

Nikkita is an experienced freelance Producer who’s worked across a range of observational, current affairs and talent-led documentaries.

Telling interesting and layered stories is at the heart of Nikkita’s love of the industry, which began with a Creative Access internship in development at Dragonfly Film & TV. She has since gone on to produce and film premium sensitive-access series, and singles, such as Our Dementia Choir (BBC1) and BAFTA-nominated Hospital: Fighting Covid-19 (BBC2).

Working with compassion and ambition is paramount to Nikkita who will always be found with a smile on her face… and, where possible, a beer in hand!

A rare talent as someone who possesses strong documentary instincts and has the refreshing ability to balance sensitive contributor relationships and access negotiations whilst delivering to an incredibly high standard.
