Gina Argento, President of Broadway Stages, will not let Nor'easter Stella get in the way for Brooklyn and Queens residents.
The hazardous conditions resulting from Stella have left many in the film industry unable to access production locations and equipment. That deters film production companies from spending $50,000 to $200,000 per day on location rentals, such as local coffee shops or businesses.
Gina and Broadway Stages will not let Stella impede location rentals that greatly benefit Queens and Brooklyn residents and businesses. Gina understands that "this stoppage alone is cutting away thousands of dollars from the local communities around our facilities." To ensure that communities in Queens and Brooklyn can resume filming, Gina will "take the lead and clean things up ourselves. We have our own plows and snow removal equipment." No matter the weather, Gina makes sure she does what she can to help the community strive.
