Your Host: Tamara Nagahiro
Born and bred in Los Angeles, Tamara has had an artistic instinct since she can remember.
However, over the past 10+ years she has developed an extensive background in the independent film industry– ranging from Acquisitions, Sales, Production, Post Production, Delivery and Servicing. As President at SSG, she acquired successful and critically acclaimed films for distribution in Taiwan such as THE HUNGER GAMES, THE EXPENDEBLES, THE IRON LADY and THE KING’S SPEECH.
On the production side, she worked in connection to HESHER, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman, ANOTHER HAPPY DAY with Demi Moore and lastly BERNIE featuring Matthew McConaughey and Jack Black.
She earned Executive Producer credit on HE’S OUT THERE starring Yvonne Strahovski from Hulu’s award-winning show THE HANDMAID’S TALE. Tamara studied Film and TV at UCLA. She has traveled the globe to major film festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, Hong Kong, Venice, Toronto, Sundance and more. On a personal note, she has ventured to places such as Portugal, Barcelona, Japan, New York, Miami, London and Tulum.
Recently, she has been inspired by the art of flower and succulent arrangements. This has become her new favorite passion and she loves sharing and teaching others. She refers to it as plant therapy and it reminds her and others to keep doing more of what they love. Her dream is to start a non-profit organization that she incorporates this practice into, to share with kids and adults who have suffered and lived traumatic lives, bringing hope into their hearts.
Some of her favorite pastimes are going to concerts, dancing, hiking, cooking, foraging interesting materials from nature and then incorporating the materials into her flower and succulent arrangements.
She spends as much time as possible with her family and friends who are mostly local to LA and loves putting together gorgeous arrangements for their events.
