meet the members: Arielle Nóbile
Meet Arielle Nóbile, a Documentary Filmmaker and Dayhouse Founding Member. Arielle is the Founder and CEO of Legacy Connections Films. With a talent for revealing a story in an authentic, compassionate film, Arielle helps families reflect, become closer, and celebrate who they are through cinematic storytelling. We asked Arielle (and our other Founding Members, stay tuned!) about how she powers through — and unwinds — from her day.
What’s your trick to starting the day in a productive mode?
I write and meditate first thing every morning. Rituals like this (and when the weather permits, a walk outside) get my day off to a great start.
How do you stay motivated throughout your day?
I don’t have an issue staying motivated, but every day I do take a break to either take a walk, a barre class, or have a quick phone call with a friend.
One thing on your desk you can’t live without?
A glass of water! Sometimes I get so focused on work that I forget to eat or drink, so keeping water right in front of me literally keeps me going.
Tell us about a personal or work achievement you’ve had in the past year.
This summer I was named to The Independent Magazine “10 Filmmakers to Watch in 2018” list, and I also won 22nd Century Media’s North Shore Women in Business Award in the Small Business category this fall.
Goal for the next year?
Finish at least two more episodes of my documentary series, “Belonging in the USA: Stories from our Neighbors.” The pilot episode is done and screening all over the country, and I’ve just wrapped production on episode #2.
What’s your passion outside of the workday?
It’s hard to pick just one, so I’ll say my family, salsa dancing, playing guitar, and singing.
What are you listening to these days?
One of my favorite podcasts — On Being with Krista Tippet. She is an incredible interviewer and human being, and has guests ranging from poets to religious leaders, scientists to politicians, and a gamut in between.
