Roger Nygard has made several award-winning, independent, feature films. The documentaries, TREKKIES and the sequel TREKKIES 2, are anthropological studies of a subculture of science-fiction fandom. SIX DAYS IN ROSWELL is a cultural portrait of Americana, a small town gone alien crazy. His documentary, THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE, asks the ultimate question, “What’s the point of everything?” According to Nygard, “When I obsesses on a topic, I don’t quit until I have a movie about it.” His current documentary project focuses on an even more inexplicable topic: Marriage.
Nygard’s narrative films include HIGH STRUNG, a comedy starring Steve Oedekerk, an action picture called, BACK TO BACK: AMERICAN YAKUZA 2, and the car-salesman cult-film SUCKERS. He has also edited feature films such as Mike Binder’s comedy-dramas, MAN ABOUT TOWN and BLACK OR WHITE.
Nygard has also directed commercials and television shows, such as the HBO series, THE MIND OF THE MARRIED MAN,” the FOX series THE BERNIE MAC SHOW, the NBC series THE OFFICE, the DisneyXD series ZEKE & LUTHER, as well as having edited Emmy and ACE nominated episodes of HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, FX’s THE LEAGUE and HBO’s VEEP.
