Nikita, James, and Adriana met in Los Angeles and became roommates through Craigslist. Shortly after, they produced their first film Chasing Shakespearebased on James’s script and starring Danny Glover and Graham Greene. Chasing Shakespeare was showcased and won awards at SXSW, AFI Cannes, Dallas International Film Festival, Montreal International Black Film Festival, and American Indian Film Festival.
James, Adriana, and Nikita quickly realized they wanted to continue making uncompromising edgy films, so they started a production company, Zombot Pictures, under which they made three more films – comedy Eat Spirit Eat(which became James’s directorial debut, Nikita's first film score, and Adriana's first lead role), an LGBTQ drama Honeyglue(which won Best Picture awards at Napa valley Film Festival, Orlando FF, and San Luis Obispo among many, and was released theatrically in 2016), and most recently We Are Boats.
Determined to bring thought-provoking Indie films into the forefront of the film industry, Zombot Pictures tells important stories that touch the hearts of audiences around the world. They do it on sets that are environmentally friendly, have organic vegan food, and are unapologetically happy.
They are committed to diversity both on screen and behind the camera. They now know that the magic of film-making doesn’t come from fairy dust, but from creating something you believe in.
Zombot Pictures is a fiercely independent film production company started by three friends: non-binary producer/composer Nikita Remi (aka Anya), Native American writer/director James Bird, and producer/actress Adriana Mather.
