Founder and fellow creative, Natalie Schwan, is an independent film director and producer, photographer, screenwriter and musician. Originally from Phoenix, AZ, she moved to Los Angeles in 2013 to pursue film. Her time in California fostered her cinematic education, instilled a working knowledge of the industry and developed her strong sense of storytelling to the screen. This led to her move to New York City in the fall of 2016, where she currently lives. Her work focuses on capturing raw humanity, celebrating the spirit of adventure and a continued fascination with world cultures. 

Her travels have taken her to over 13 countries in Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and Oceania. She has lived abroad twice and most recently spent two months studying film at the New Zealand Film Academy.

After noticing a clear gap in up-and-coming creators and platforms for them to expand their clientele, the concept for Velocity Creatives was born in 2015. Her hope in starting the company is not only to give artists more options to create in a collaborative setting but also to facilitate a venue to showcase artistic entrepreneurs and small businesses in creative industries.
