Greg Noll


FILMMAKER

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA

“Greg rented the Santa Monica civic for one of his premiers, which held about 5,000 people. First night, it was just raucous. Pressure-packed. Greg gets up onstage to introduce the film, the crowd’s going crazy, pelting him with beer and bottle caps; all Greg could do was retreat, and turn on the projecter—and then it got really out of control.”
