"I wanted to be the next Bob Costas, then I went to New York City and realized there was another 4,000 guys just like me," said Nobert.
After several years in New York he moved to Las Vegas, where he worked as a creative director on a number of projects. In 2005, Nobert made his first movie. With the success of "Yard Sale," Nobert has formed his own production company, Kingmaker Productions, and hopes to get involved in more independent film efforts.
Though he has participated in the 48 Hour Film Project before, two previous attempts hadn't been done in time. One, "Breaking Bread," was a satirical interpretation of the Last Supper with improvised dialogue.
The point is, said Nobert, making art requires a lot of hard work and determination. With the means of filmmaking in the reach of many more than ever before, though, those hoping to succeed in the industry also have the means to experiment. Making a living with a lens is by no means an easy task, but the first step is to pick up the camera and produce something.
"To anybody who's trying, hats off," said Nobert. "If it was really easy to make a movie everybody wouldIf you make a good film, good films eventually see the light of day."
