The Canadian National Conference hosted by Talent INC attracts the best casting professionals, talent agencies, modeling agencies, directors, producers and talent from across Canada. Nomi Roher of Know Me Productions (KMP) will be the featured guest of honor at the next conference.
Nomi Roher, a media executive, program developer, and Emmy® award winning producer/director, is the founder and President of Know Me Productions. For more than fifteen years, Nomi's creative vision and managerial expertise have distinguished her wide-ranging work in television and video content production, both broadcast and webcast, for the film, music, sports, and fashion industries.
A native of Toronto, Canada, Nomi has lived in New York City since the early 90’s. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree at Rutgers University, she began her media career working on long-form documentaries for PBS prime-time broadcast. During graduate studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, she collaborated on several award-winning short films and independent videos that won professional acclaim.
Doug Sloan of Talent INC Canada says "Nomi is a great fit for us as she is Canadian, and has a passion for sharing her expertise with the next generation of young artists."
Nomi is best known for her dynamic promo spots and video packages for popular recording artists—Mary J. Blige, Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Solange Knowles. These spots have run on network TV as well as on cable’s BET, E!, MTV, and VH1.
Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Moët Hennessy USA, Time Inc, and Sports Illustrated are among long-term clients. KMP also represents film and video professionals, placing specialized freelance media crews in a wide range of assignments across the U.S. and Canada.
From 2007 to 2009, as the Director of Production at NYC TV, Nomi managed a production group of more than 100 staff and freelance personnel. She oversaw all aspects of production, from inception to delivery, of a full slate of original programs, including the Emmy® Award-winning series, Secrets of New York. Several seasons of Secrets have aired on NYC TV’s flagship station, its partner station WNBC-TV, and PBS stations nationwide.
Nomi also served as Executive Producer for NYC TV’s NY 360, Eat Out New York, A la Kelly, That’s So New York, Gigs, Blueprint, and City Scoop; as well as coverage of special events—the renowned Gotham Independent Film Awards, the New York Emmy® Awards, and the B & C Magazine Broadcast and Cable Awards, to name a few.
Nomi is excited for the upcoming conference and will be sharing her journey as both a director and producer with the hand selected talent attending the conference next April.
