Nina Bargiel (aka the slackmistress)'s Summary

NOTE: If you are interested in hiring me, please contact my Manager, Samantha Slan. Her email address can be found at ninabargiel.com.

Nina Bargiel is an award-winning television writer and Transmedia Producer.


On the transmedia side of things, Nina is most known for creating the interactive experience for MTV's series "Valemont." "Valemont" took place over multiple platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, VerizonSMS and the ARG (Alternate Reality Game) ValemontU.com site.

"Valemont" was nominated for 6 Streamy Awards in 2010 including "Best Interactive Experience" and "Best Mobile Experience." The online experience was also rolled out with the show's international release.

Due to her transmedia knowledge, Nina has been an invited speaker and panelist at events such as MIT's Story 3.0 Conference, the Nordic Games Conference, Digital Hollywood, USC, Digital LA, ARGFest, and the 140 Conference.

Nina also has over ten years of television writing experience, writing seventeen episodes of Disney Channel's tween hit "Lizzie McGuire" as well as Cartoon Network's "Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy." She was nominated for multiple awards for "Lizzie McGuire," including two Emmy awards. She recently wrapped Nickelodeon's "How to Rock" and "House of Anubis."

Nina can also be found cracking wise as a commentator on BBCAmerica's "Brit List: Dr. Who Ultimate LIst of Lists" and "Brit List: 20 Most Outrageous US vs. UK."

(If you've made it this far, Nina thinks talking about herself in the third person is creepy. But Nina did it anyway.)
