Malvina Martin

Malvina is a senior executive producer, with a passion for creating smart, cutting-edge programming for a wide range of audiences. Her track record of success is rooted in understanding the target demographic of the brands she works with. At Black Dot Films she created the award-winning VR pipeline for National Geographic Magazine. She also developed, produced and directed the highly successful launch of Facebook’s 360 LIVE platform – the first ever LIVE VR broadcast. Streamed via satellite uplink from a remote location totally off-the-grid… to millions of viewers, the groundbreaking broadcast featured Neal deGrasse Tyson as a team of scientists emerged from 90 days of total isolation at a remote research pod in a Mars-like desert. A massive technological undertaking, the hour-long broadcast pushed VR tech to new levels, required an army of over 30 technicians and 2 satellite trucks. As a co-founder of Black Dot Films, Malvina is at the forefront of transforming VR from just a “cool new tech” into a rich non-fiction storytelling platform that puts the audience at the heart of larger than life stories they capture. Prior to Black Dot Films, Malvina was Senior VP of Story Development at National Geographic, overseeing over 150 specials and the development pipeline of NGC’s Emmy award-winning series EXPLORER.
