Meet Chieko Nakagawa
Cinematography Exchange Intern
What’s your sign?
List 3 things you’re an expert in:
Shooting weddings, traveling, Japan
How do you like your coffee?
Ice coffee with caramel syrup.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
I love the first dance because it encompasses the whole idea of weddings—an intimate moment for the couple with family and friends gathered all around.
Describe your happy place:
Out to dinner with my family and friends.
If you were an ice cream flavor, which would you be and why?
Cherry Garcia, because I’m sweet and tangy!
What were you for Halloween last year?
We don’t really have a Halloween in Japan, but I am already thinking about what I will be my first year in the US.
How would you describe love?
Relationships have their ups and downs. Love is cherishing the good things and putting a positive spin on the not so good things.
What’s the most embarrassing fact you’re willing to share about yourself?
When I first moved to NYC, I went to buy a $1 hot dog one day. I only had change so I give the vendor four quarters and waited for my hot dog. He told me I couldn’t have it because I didn’t pay enough. I took the change back but couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t enough. All of a sudden, I realized I had given him four nickels instead of quarters. I felt so silly!
What’s your favorite part of working at NST PICTURES?
I love that the entire NST team and our clients all come together to create something beautiful.
