    Adhamh O Broin Dialect Coach Brings Gaelic Authenticity to "Outlander"

    in Entertainment

    NWP welcomes Adhamh OBroin, dialect coach for STARZ-TV hit show 'OUTLANDER" http://adhamhobroin.scot

    The producers of "Outlander" are all about making the show as authentic as it can be.

    That starts with shooting in the foggy hills of the Scottish Highlands — including turning real-life ruin Castle Doune into fictional Castle Leoch, home of the MacKenzie clan, whose exploits are recounted in Diana Gabaldon’s best sellers — garbing the men in real kilts, which are composed of some 10 yards of tartan and then folded by hand; and having the Scots speak Gaelic, the language of the time. That’s why resident hunk Jamie Fraser often affectionately refers to Claire Randall as “Sassenach,” which means “outlander” in Gaelic, a derisive term that Jamie turns into a pet name.

    Since Gaelic is nearly a dead language, sprinkling it liberally through the scenes took some doing. For starters, the show hired Àdhamh Ó Broin to serve as the show’s Gaelic dialect coach.

    The series was lucky to find Ó Broin. The married father of four has dedicated much of his life to the study and preservation of the language and its multiple dialects, and he brought that expertise to bear on “Outlander.”

    Filmmaker Michael L. Boylan: Writer & Director of “The Radio”

    in Radio

    “No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls” said the late Swedish Filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. It’s time for my annual tribute to the spirit of the Independent Filmmakers and the films they create. Often working with little or no budget, these intrepid writers, directors, and producers (often the same person) rely on their passion, patience, and perseverance to get their film completed. Indie films are often screened at local, national, or international film festivals, and some are ultimately bound for glory and released to theaters. Michael L. Boylan of Pennant Films in Atlantic Highlands is the first Filmmaker in the series. He says, “I would always look around as a child and imagine what I was seeing was a movie. I would see two lovers speaking, a bird chirping, a man running and make it all into a movie in my head. Editing each shot with my brain until I could play it back in its entirety.” Michael’s latest short film is The Radio, about a timid boy who gets love advice from his recently deceased uncle through a vintage transistor radio. The Radio will be premiered May 8th at Atlantic Cinemas in Atlantic Highlands. Last year another of Michael’s films, The Baseball Card, was an Official Selection of the Garden State Film Festival. This is Part 1 of my Filmmaker Series. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    Powhatan Cherokee Herbalist Ila Hatter: The Lady Of The Forest

    in Religion

    Ila (pronouced Eye'-lah) Hatter (website) (blog) is a descendant of Pocahontas whose mother was a Cherokee woman named Amopotuskee and whose father was Wahunsunacock a/k/a "King Powhatan."

    In this program, a lot about Snowbird (Eastern) Cherokee culture is discussed.

    Ila Hatter’s mission is to tune people in to the many ways they can make Mother Nature’s pantry and medicine cabinet their own. Hatter does not forage the woods in the hope of making a profit. “In my case, I’m not gathering things to sell but instead am using them for education – teaching people what these plants are, how to identify them, what the traditional uses are, what the potential market might be for them. I combine my knowledge of the flora with folklore, telling interesting stories that go with the botany of what I do.”

    Ila, known as THE LADY OF THE FOREST, is an interpretive naturalist, artist, wildcrafter, and gourmet cook with more than 25 years experience teaching the cultural heritage of native plants. She is a staff instructor for the Univ. of Tenn.’s Smoky Mtn Field School, guest instructor for the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, the John C. Campbell Folk School (Brasstown, NC), The Mountain Retreat Center (Highlands, NC), Snowbird Mtn Lodge (Robbinsville, NC), Charter Board Member of the Yellow Creek Botanical Institute; and Storyteller for Elderhostels in 3 states.

    FINAL Wet Your Whistle Episode - Don't yuck my rum - Zacapa!

    in Lifestyle

    Sadly, all good things must come to an end.  Yet what better way to bring our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series to a close than with the Brand Ambassador of the premier rum company, Zacapa!  On Wednesday, December 17th at noon Lynnette Marrero will introduce us to the first rum to be inducted into the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame.

    This honor may have something to do with the fact that Zacapa is aged in “The House Above the Clouds,” a facility 7,544 feet above sea level in the highlands of Guatemala.  The naturally thinner air and lower atmospheric pressure of this unique location intensifies the infusion of flavors into the barrels.  This is not the only thing that makes Zacapa’s creation process surprisingly unique.  Instead of using traditional molasses as a base, Zacapa is made from concentrated first press of sugar cane, called virgin sugar cane honey, and a specialized strain of yeast extracted from pineapples.

    Clearly, there is nothing typical about the way in which this rum is made, nor in the way that it tastes.  Tune in this Wednesday to hear more about how this company has made their rum EXTRA-ordinary.
