    In conversation with ZARAH - Hollywood writer, producer & TV personality...

    This week on The Entertainment Engine we welcome ZARAH. Primarily known as an American television personality, writer and producer, ZARAH (pronounced as ZAY-rah) is also a trained actress and an accomplished recording artist who performed with rock bands like Goo Goo Dolls. Her flair for edutainment utilizing music had inspired teens through her various media platforms of educational excellence programs namely her nationally syndicated television show B InTune TV. 

    She is the co-founder of B InTuneCARES—a global media initiative for youth which focuses on edutainment to help advance music and arts education in conjunction with the United Nations and its humanitarian efforts. Based out of Los Angeles but originally born in Manila, the Philippines, ZARAH's love for story-telling did not come to fruition until her adult life. 

    A Novel - Diamonds are for Cocktails:
    In a setting that permeates a decadent lifestyle, a palatial chateau sprawls across the sun-kissed French Riviera coastline in the Principality of Monaco. Ever glamorous Camille Rogers, the adopted French sole heiress to a vast multi-billion-dollar jewellery empire seems to have it all. Her life—as it turns out—is nothing more than a fantastical illusion. Childhood best friend James Hughes offers solace and fortitude.

    A Chat with Actor & Writer Jim Piddock - Caught with My Pants Down and Other Tales from a Life in Hollywood!

    This week on The Entertainment Engine we welcome Jim Piddock. Jim is an actor, writer, and producer, who began his career on the stage in England, before emigrating to the U.S. in his early twenties. 

    He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in “The Boy’s Own Story”, a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco. The show was an instant success with critics and audiences, winning Jim the Bay Area Critics’ Best Actor Award. The show was then produced Off-Broadway and he quickly gained the attention of the New York theatre scene. That same year (1982), he was cast in Noel Coward’s “Present Laughter” by George C. Scott, who directed/starred in the revival, which also featured Nathan Lane, Christine Lahti, Dana Ivey, and Kate Burton. 

    After replacing Frank Langella in “Design For Living” at the Circle-In-The-Square theatre, he moved to Los Angeles and has since appeared in a long succession of tv shows, such as “The Tracey Ullman Show”, “Coach”, “Max Headroom”, “The Twilight Zone”, “Murder She Wrote”, “Mad About You”, “Angel”, “ER”, “Friends”, “Crossing Jordan”, “The Drew Carey Show”, “Lost”, “Monk”, “Without A Trace”, “Dollhouse”, “Party Down”, “Law And Order: LA”, “Castle”, “Two And A Half Men”, “Children’s Hospital”, “Mom”, “The Royals”, and “The Grinder”.

    A chat with Gill Tee music promoter and co-founder Black Deer Festival

    A chat with Gill Tee music promoter and co-founder Black Deer Festival

    This week on the Entertainment Engine podcast we welcome Gill Tee, co-founder of Black Deer, an Award-winning 3-day UK festival celebrating Americana music & its culture. Gill started her music career at Capital Radio, one of the largest commercial radio stations in London. Her role at the start was to promote ‘on air’, music events and festivals for the leading UK promoters of the time. She worked her way through the ranks becoming Head of Entertainment at the station, looking after all the live music elements, along with developing new projects. During this period Gill was charged with pulling together, the first 100,000 capacity Party in the Park at Hyde Park in 1998.

    This is where Gill fell in love with producing events. Having secured a production company to work with on the project, and watching a world build from a greenfield site, it became apparent to her that this would be her next move into the world of live music. Gill took the massive step of leaving a secure job at Capital to start her own events business, Entertee. 

    Gill was determined to go it alone but was persuaded by Deb Shilling,  whom she had worked with at Capital that having a business partner would be more fun, so she and Debs set about finding an office and building a business. In 2009, she was asked by one of the UK’s top promoters, Vince Power,  to produce a new festival in Kent, the Hop Farm Festival. There she learned first-hand the ups and downs of producing a festival from scratch. 

    The Hop Farm was headlined by some incredible artists, Bob Dylan, Neil Young the Eagles and hundreds more. The performance that stood out above all others during the 5 years of Hop Farms life, was the iconic Prince’s first and only UK festival appearance.

    A chat with Award-Winning Filmmaker Anthony Saldana

    In this weeks episode of The Entertainment Engine, we welcome Anthony Saldana an Award-winning filmmaker based in Queens, New York! He has a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies from the Queens College City University of New York and a Masters of Arts Degree in Communications from the New York Institute of Technology.

    The latest film Anthony Saldana & Jason Figueira have produced is called ‘Straight Off The Canvas’ an award-winning documentary that captures the journey and passion of several New York artists that are blind and visually impaired. This amazing film shows us how the visually impaired can create, teach, and appreciate art. It features working artists and art teachers from the New York City area. This film has won several awards, including being named Best Public Awareness Video in the 42nd Annual Telly Awards and is judged by leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks, production companies including Netflix, A&E Networks, Nickelodeon, ESPN Films and Vimeo.

    Both Anthony and Jason have a great back story, looking at how they both met and how they came to decide to make films about groups like the visually impaired.

    Anthony and Jason have been collaborating ever since they met in college, and are the writers, filmmakers, and producers of two documentaries so far: “Straight Off the Canvas” and “We’re Ordinary People.” 

    Then we had a talk about their own personal adversities and how their experiences play into their lives. They haven’t let their disabilities or Covid keep them from continuing to chase their dreams of being successful filmmakers.

    We really hope you enjoy the conversation.....
