Stephanie Silber has worked in entertainment and the media for over twenty years. Her theatrical experience includes work both on the boards and behind the scenes, and includes associations with Playwrights Horizons and The Ensemble Studio Theatre. After a stint as a print journalist, writing primarily about entertainment, Silber began producing, writing, and directing long-form documentaries which have aired on such outlets as AMC; Court Television; The History Channel; and The Learning Channel. Her short film, ENVIRONMENTALISTS UNDER FIRE, for the Sierra Club and Amnesty International, was narrated by Gabriel Byrne. It was a recipient of a Telly Award in 2000, and screened at the Amnesty International Film Festival in Vancouver, 2002. Currently, Silber continues to expand Home Team’s writing services to include not just scriptwriting, but treatments; trailers; press releases; bios; web pages; and more. As a wordsmith, most recently she was proud to work with United Way of Westchester and Putnam, as it launches the new national campaign, LIVE UNITED.
Victor Zimet is a veteran of the film and television business with over thirty years experience to his credit. His career began in the wildly expressive 70’s, editing indie actioners and trailers. In the following decade the directing bug bit him, and his first venture, CHASING A DREAM, a doc about minor league baseball, aired on USA Network. He followed that up with DIAMOND HEARTS, a collaboration with Silber, which profiled minor league legends Joe Buzas and Max Patkin. The film was optioned by NBC and aired on New England Sports Network and PRISM.
Zimet was awarded an Emmy for producing and directing a magazine segment on the victorious 1986 Mets for WNYC-TV. Prior to launching Home Team, he edited many network specials, and developed a stellar reputation at CBS, editing on various series including STREET STORIES with the late Ed Bradley; EYE TO EYE with Connie Chung; and PUBLIC EYE with Bryant Gumbel, during which he received another Emmy nomination.
