Traditionally, movie producers and directors start from acting and grow into filmmaking, but there are few in the industry that didn’t take that route. Nina’s memory about movie-making was at a very young age with her brother, they would act and produce short films in VHS which her brother would edit and convert. Nina never thought of movie making as a career, she was more of a dancer and choreographer who wanted to study law while in high school.
Coming from one of her dance performances with her mom, they decided to check out the school his brother was planning on seeking admission, and that was where Nina saw all those fancy equipment for film making and she fell in love. Long story short, she stole her brother’s dreams.
