Axel Gerdau


Public bio

I produce and direct journalism and nonfiction films for digital and TV, from documentaries to profiles and explainers. I specialize in crafting compelling stories that connect emotionally with audiences and turn complex subjects into easy-to-understand, visually striking narratives. Most recently I worked as a staff video journalist and producer for The New York Times based in New York City. For the Times I produced, shot and edited, focusing on documentary and news in the areas of public affairs and business.
