While a lot of people spend the rest of their lives figuring out their purpose, highly acclaimed director, screenwriter, producer, and children’s book author Diane Namm has always known that she wants to delve in the world of literature. So she took the necessary steps to ensure she can reach her dreams and inspire others to do the same.
From the moment she saw Braveheart, she believed that she was meant to be a female filmmaker and screenwriter. She then spent a huge part of her life running toward it. She polished her writing by creating several teen novels and film scripts, which allowed her to find her own voice along the way.
She first worked in New York City under several publishing companies such as Simon & Schuster, Grosset & Dunlap, and MacMillan Publishing as a writer and editor of children’s books. On the side, aside from authoring children’s books, she was developing stage plays.

What happens when you’re a highly creative person trapped in the body of a hard working corporate manager? In part 3 of my series on NJ Filmmakers, we’ll meet Antoinette Hadgis, an aspiring filmmaker. Toni studied math in college and eventually enjoyed a successful career for many years as a manager in a corporate environment. She was highly focused on her work and an excellent problem solver. There was definitely some measure of creatively involved in solving problems but not enough to satisfy Toni’s longing for an artistic challenge – like making a film. To nurture her creative side, Toni took a few classes and was hooked on the idea of working in film in some capacity. A few years as a volunteer with the Garden State Film Festival, afforded Toni an opportunity to see the power of independent films. Her well honed business skills seemed to make her a natural as a producer, but Toni was especially drawn to the storytelling aspect and clearly visualized herself in the director’s chair. To get some initial experience Toni joined a Meet-Up group in NY and worked with a crew under the guidance of an experienced producer/director. Together the group created a short film and this experience helped Toni crystallize her goal to become a filmmaker. So what’s next? Toni is planning to start a Meet-Up group in NJ to draw in other like-minded people who can work on a film project – most likely with her at the helm. Toni will share her path from corporate life to aspiring filmmaker. In parts 1 and 2 of this series, we met two very different filmmakers who shared their personal journeys and how they achieved their goals. Toni has a ways to go, but I’m betting on her success.

RANGER SELF DEFENSE THE BOOKS OF AARON CLAREY (CAPTAIN CAPITALISM) CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
THE BOOKS OF DR ILEANA JOHNSON
Michael Mandaville does not fit the stereotype of a Hollywood filmmaker. Author of the book, " Citizen-Soldier Handbook: 101 Ways for Every American to Fight Terrorism," he calls Liberty Drive to discuss the erosion of our liberties, centralization of power in Washington, and why Hollywood is so liberal.
Award-winning independent filmmaker David Spaltro drops by to discuss Things I Don’t Understand, his acclaimed movie gem currently wowing audiences at film festivals everywhere. He will also talk about …Around, his first feature offering. Both come across as emotionally powerful motion pictures. One follows a young man’s struggle to complete film school despite financial and emotional problems, the other deals with an intelligent but troubled young woman as she tr
Baseball. The National Pastime. Cooperstown and the legends within still provide romance and mystique for baseball fans everywhere. Babe Ruth said, “Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.” Andrew Lilley is a NJ filmmaker with the mission of bringing timeless stories to film so they endure. Well, Andrew hit a metaphoric home run himself with his debut film I’ll Knock A Homer For You: The Timeless Story of Johnny Sylvester and Babe Ruth -- he won the recent Garden State Film Festival’s Home Grown Documentary Feature award. Andrew, a 2008 graduate of NY Film Academy, found inspiration for this timeless story right within his family. Johnny Sylvester was his father’s uncle, and Andrew first heard the story directly from his own father. It’s a classic tale of a sick boy, Johnny Sylvester, and The Babe promising him to hit a homer for him during the 1926 World Series. There is the Hollywood version of this legendary story, and there is the unembellished version which is still amazing. And this is what Andrew Lilley, Founder and CEO of Loose Gravel Films, has portrayed so well in his documentary. The tale of Johnny Sylvester also has a Jersey Shore connection. While at a rented house in Bay Head, NJ during the summer of 1926, Sylvester was horseback riding when he was thrown to the ground along with his horse. The horse tried to stand and kicked Sylvester’s head. The injury progressed and by Sept he was diagnosed with osteomyelitis in his skull. And exactly how did The Babe get involved in all this? We’ll have Andrew explain this part of the story, as well as why he decided to make this particular film and what was the experience like for him. This interview is Part 1 in a series on NJ filmmakers. After the interview, please check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
