Recommendations for Noël

At 12:46pm on Nov 22, 2022, Josh AlfordJosh Alford, actor said…

"Noël Ramos the nicest guy out there in the film industry. He explains things in a very clear and understandable language. He is very patient and very selfless. He loves everything about acting and has a vast knowledge of what it takes to be an actor. He will help you reach your goal quickly if you apply what you learn from him. He is great at encouraging you but at the same time telling you what you need to work on to better yourself in your self-taped auditions. I highly recommend working with him to further your career in acting."

At 1:26pm on Sep 2, 2022, Alivia IannucciAlivia Iannucci, actor said…

"I’m learning so much with all of the resources / feedback provided in the group. I had little clue about technical details for self tape auditions until I got feedback from Noël. It’s an amazing group to be in and you’ll for sure grow as an actor! Noël Ramos has an incredible amount of experience and a huge passion to share his knowledge with everyone. I’ve learned so many things about acting, tech for self tapes, agencies, accents, annunciation, film vocabulary, professionalism and I could go on and on. The topics in Actors Feedback Forum are endless. Not only is it resourceful, but overall it’s a community. If you need anything, people in the group will always have your back. I’m beyond grateful to be a part of the Actors Feedback Forum."

At 4:29pm on Aug 15, 2022, Al BraleyAl Braley, actor said…

"Noël gives excellent feedback & he is very encouraging to all his fellow actors."

At 1:55pm on May 22, 2022, XXXXxxxxBradley Van Dussen, film industry professional said…

"Noël, it’s Saturday evening at almost 7pm and I am perusing movies on Pure Flix. I watch the trailer for I’M NOT HIM and see this cop…whoa! Congrats on this role; so happy for you!"

At 12:46pm on Jul 22, 2021, Porcelain DalyaPorcelain Dalya, film industry professional said…

"Can't recommend Noël Ramos enough! Professional and laser focused on helping you achieve your goals!"

At 1:55pm on Jul 12, 2021, Sam ZilicSam Zilic, actor said…

"Re: your acting: Dude you should be in films period. It lured me in, you did amazing, I have met you in person and to see you transform into a “character” is when I know you did well!! Amazing.
Re: your directing: Noel, you should be doing this for a living, you are truly a great mentor, I have sent others to join your forum and I won’t forget your tips, advice, and directorial direction!"

At 10:51am on Sep 15, 2018, Sean SederholmSean Sederholm Producer and Director of "Mrs. Hawking" said…

"I want to take this late September morning to shout out the facebookian TV/media lovers out there (so all?), to check out Noël Ramos' teaser for his upcoming crime series, FREEZE FRAMED. It's a completely unique take on the genre that gives the audience a chance to get in on the action. Noël and Paul Stamper knocked it out of the park for my short film, Mrs. Hawking, and this series is a continuation of the skill the two bring to the indie platform. Noël is the filmmaker who will go above and beyond on a project and is one of the most professional and knowledgeable filmmakers I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

At 11:27am on May 1, 2017, Phil HallPhil Hall, Host of "The Online Movie Show" said…

"I had the pleasure to work with Noël Ramos on two endeavors - "The Ghostlight Project" and "The Sparrow Falling" - and I was impressed with the professionalism that he brings to his work as an actor/writer/director. It is a pleasure to share his creative output in this week's podcast episode."

At 12:06:45pm on November 29, 2016, Jeffrey MartinJeffrey Martin, Producer/Director said…

"Hey Noel, Thanks for sending all of this over to me! I am impressed with your reel. Here's a copy of the script we are going to be shooting with. You seem to be a good fit for Detective Carlson. Let me know what you think. We are having a table read in Amherst, MA tomorrow at there any way you could make it? Please let me know." (Click to SEE ME as Detective Carlson in "Oliviex.")

At 10:22:09pm on October 18, 2016, Sebastian NevilleSebastian Neville, Cinematographer/Producer/Editor said…

"A friend recommended Noël to help me out for a shoot in CT. "He is the "Swiss Army Knife of PAs" I was told. I thought, OK that's good but I'm sure my contact is exaggerating... then came Noël. He was ready to help as a PA but with the tools of a grip guy or even a gaffer. His knowledge around equipment is excellent. He understands how to organize equipment and how to set up lights, more importantly to make changes on the go. A pleasure to work with. Great service. Highly recommended."

At 2:24:00pm on October 18, 2016, Creative Resources GroupCreative Resources Group (CRG), Broadcasting & Media Production/Advertising Agency said…

"Thanks Noël Ramos, glad to have you on set again. The pleasure is all ours! Just love all the great new footage we get to work with, I mean come on, look at your winning smile! :)"

At 5:46:29pm on September 8, 2016, Nolan YeeNolan Yee, Director said…

"I needed an AC for my short film, and was put in touch with Noël Ramos by another local filmmaker, and I couldn't have been happier. Noël is a hard working, prepared, and extremely competent hand. He takes initiative when he sees something needs to be done, and was always at the side of my DP. He went above and beyond in his duties, and rolled with the punches as we worked through on set difficulties, (which will always happen.) If you have the chance to work with Noël, take it."

At 12:52pm on May 15, 2016, Susan BrudnySusan Brudny, Audience member said…

"What a great show last night. Noël was part of an amazing cast for Sigourney Square Park. He had a particular challenge playing an autistic person... Well done! Fabulous chemistry between actors! Loved the storyline. Mixture of emotions throughout the play. The play was great on so many levels! Hit many emotions & had a wonderful nostalgic edge. The happy ending which could have been corny, wasn't. So glad Terri & I came. Oh & the clever construction of the set by Noël Ramos! Very impressive all around!"

At 11:33pm on May 14, 2016, Chris TangrediChris Tangredi, Actor said…

"Hey Noël, I came down to Hartford tonight to check out Sigourney Square Park and your performance. You did a great job! You were funny and emotional and you all got another standing ovation tonight!"

At 4:52pm on March 28, 2016, Nick PalmerNick Palmer, Producer/Director said…

"Noel's Streetlight Emulator breathed new life into the scene, giving an authentic seedy feel to the whole thing. With its unique makeshift design, he was able to perfectly emulate the look of a car driving in the night. Mr. Ramos is truly a cinema MacGyver. Thanks for your ingenuity and support Noël! I look forward to a long partnership with Unit 2 Productions."

At 11:58am on December 15, 2015, Gnana ShekaranGnana Shekaran, Producer/Director said…

"Honestly... your performance was awesome. You should definitely be part of my feature."

At 3:14pm on October 15, 2015, John GalvinJohn Galvin, Key Grip said…

"While I was Key Grip on ‘Ghost Tour’, I had my first opportunity to meet and work with Noel. He quickly proved himself to be a great choice for the Key Grip Position when I was directing my own Project, ‘Room for One More’ the next month. His capable, safety based, no-nonsense approach to his responsibilities on set was a great model for the whole team. I will definitely be enlisting him on my future productions." John W Galvin - JWI Entertainment

At 12:05am on October 1, 2015, Nick PalmerNick Palmer, Director said…

"With a professionalism only matched by his charm, Noel Ramos is an invaluable addition and a boost of creative energy to any film set! I swear by it!"

At 10:49pm on September 30, 2015, Mike MagilnickMike Magilnick, Producer/Director said…

"Noel Ramos was a pleasure to have on set in any capacity. I've worked with Noel in multiple capacities on set. As an Actor he was very thorough and kept clear sight of what his role was and how it impacted his fellow cast members' roles and performances. His knowledge from the crew side helped him to be especially helpful while performing and knowing what we were doing on our end and how it may effect his end. As a Key Grip he was extremely safe and thorough. I never felt the desire to check his work and verify things were being done properly. He managed his department efficiently and clearly. I would hire him on in a heartbeat for any picture, big or small in the future."

At 12:59am on July 19, 2015, Erik BloomquistErik Bloomquist, Director said…

"Noel - thanks again for your hard work. You were a huge asset to set. Looking forward to having you on the next one."

My Biography

I began my life as an artist when I was very young, taking a serious interest in sculpting and illustration, as well as other media. At the age of 13, I had already created an entire universe of original super heroes. I wrote, illustrated, colored, inked and lettered dozens of complete, one-of-a-kind comic books featuring my characters. After a few more years of intensive self-directed study, I enrolled in formal training as a comic book artist with Dick Giordano and Frank McLaughlin, two of the most well-known artists of their time. Dick was the current President of DC Comics, the makers of my favorite hero: Batman. Frank was the inker on the Justice League of America book, one of DC's most popular titles.

Frank really took me under his wing, and during a tour of his professional art studio, he introduced me to the world of Graphic Design, forever altering my career path. I became a young professional Graphic Artist when McDonald's hired me to paint their famous characters on the windows of several restaurants. I was just 16 years old.

Upon graduating Naugatuck High School with honors at the age of 17, I immediately left home, striking out on my own by moving all the way to California. Just two weeks after arriving there, still months before my 18th birthday, I was hired as a professional Graphic Artist for a company that designed and created Directories and signage for shopping malls.

While living in California, I also began working as a DJ and Live Event Host/Emcee. It was the actual beginning of my performance career, and would lead me into radio work, commercial production and the eventual creation of a music conference that grew into an international event. The Independent Music Conference® would be presented in cities all over the U.S., including Hollywood, and even as far away as Brisbane, Australia.

Almost eight years after moving to Sacramento, I returned to my hometown to open my own Graphic Design business, which flourished for years. At one time I designed the logos for both of the top two radio stations in Connecticut, and my billboards and bumper stickers could often be seen next to each other on the highways.

Then as the technology became easily available to consumers, and the digital video revolution began in earnest during the 80s, I leapt into it by publishing a magazine and created a television show based on it, called "Mixx Video." For two years I hosted the cable access program watched by almost 40,000 cable subscribers. During its run, the show won two viewer's choice awards, and I interviewed dozens of famous musicians, and featured many local artists on the live program.

As the Independent Music Conference grew I began to focus less and less on the performance side of my efforts, until many years later, when I joined a semi-professional singing group called LeVoci as one of three basses. Together we toured Italy and sang in beautiful and historic locations such as the Vatican. Singing in public reawakened my love for performance, but it wasn't until a fateful email some years later that I'd end up in front of a camera again.

Ironically, as if to symbolize the lifelong link between my graphics career and my performance efforts, the email arrived via an unlikely source. It was posted to a discussion list for Graphics and Digital Media people. It was a call for "Extras," needed for a feature film that was to be shot in scenic Great Barrington, MA. I took a chance and sent a recent photo. The reply was immediate and surprising: "Hey Noel, Thanks so much for your response, you are exactly the type we are looking for."

To summarize the whirlwind that I was about to experience: I ended up filming for well over a month, I was bumped up (promoted) to Featured Extra, given a character name: "Agent Fidelio," and promised a listing in the credits! The final scene was shot in New York City, and it was spectacular. The film is called "Like Lambs" and stars such well-known names as Liam Aiken (Lemony Snickets w/ Jim Carrey and Road to Perdition w/ Tom Hanks), Justin Chon (21 & Over, Twilight) and more! It is scheduled to be released in 2016, and I have remained involved with its post-production as a social media promoter.

The encouragement I received from the film's Producers and Directors, prompted me to take acting classes, and I enrolled at the amazing Actors Gym in New Haven, CT. The school's founder, Reno Venturi remains one of my most influential mentors and helped me launch a brand new career.

Now, just two years after that email arrived, I have an IMDb page filled with TV credits, short films, Feature-length films, Commercials, Spokesperson roles, Live Dinner Theater, and more…

My latest recurring role has been as a Background Actor for the new hit television show on NBC called "Blindspot." Watch for "Agent Kyle LaColla" as he works alongside the rest of his team and the stars of the show in the "SIOC," or Strategic Information Operations Center. It seems fitting that I started as "Agent Fidelio," and now I am "Agent LaColla."

If I have to be typecast, it could be worse… :)
