Nina Noble
Rev Al and I are so excited to release this great conversation with Nina Noble. She's an Emmy Winning Executive Producer. She is the Executive Producer of the new hit series on HBO, We Own this City. As a Baltimore resident this isn't her first time around the block in Baltimore, Nina also played a huge role in two HBO Series, The Corner, and The Wire. Nina takes us through her journey from a Grip on the set to Executive Producer. We also get into the the details of the impact that her film making has had on the Baltimore landscape, from caterer's to extra's and helping hands and even some new actors coming from the streets of Baltimore. Learn about film making and its impact on local economies a huge take away from this talk. We learn that as Baltimorean's we may not like how some of these shows depict our city, but there are many benefits that come along with filmaking and we delve into all of them. She's an incredible woman who wants to do good and is all about doing good. She doing it and gets the Halo nearly right out of the gate, this was a great conversation that took place just after the series premier of We Own This City! There's a take away from that title for all of us, We as Baltimoreans and taxpayers OWN this city, every inch of it, and if we really own all of it, it will be much easier to work together to make it all the best it can be for everyone! Thanks Nina, this was a great chat!
