From the the the screen.

Home Team Productions was launched in December, 1999. Its founding members are Producer/Directors Victor Zimet and Stephanie Silber. Credits include WORKFORCE, a ˝ hour pilot for Fox; segments for BRAZELTON ON PARENTING for Fox Family; work on Rob Reiners I AM YOUR CHILD FOUNDATION videos, for New Screen Concepts; and a one-hour BRAVO Profile on Cyndi Lauper. A second BRAVO Profile produced and directed by Home Team about the actor/director Robert Duvall aired October, 2002. The hour took a close up look at Duvalls creative process as he produced and directed his feature film, ASSASSINATION TANGO. The program won a Telly Award and an Aurora Award, and was featured at the Tarrytown Film Festival with critics Peter Travers and Judith Crist. Most recently, a long-form documentary about the late Irish blues guitar great, Rory Gallagher, premiered in 2004 on Irelands TG4, with its New York premiere in September, 2005 at NYUs Cantor Film Center. The film, SONGS & STORIES: New York Remembers Rory Gallagher, was featured at the 2006 Westchester Film Festival. HOME TEAM PRODUCTIONS works-in-progress include a documentary about Croatian composer/rock musician Nenad Bach, a star in his own country who is trying to find his niche in America; and FANATIC HEART: The Story So Far, which will document the doings of Black 47, the House Band of New York City, and its erudite frontman, playwright, novelist, and memoirist Larry Kirwan.

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 outlets such as Court Television, The History Channel and The Learning Channel. Her educational video, ENVIRONMENTALISTS UNDER FIRE, for the Sierra Club and Amnesty International, was recognized in 2000 with a Telly Award, and was represented at the Amnesty International Film Festival in Vancouver, 2002.

Victor Zimet has worked in the film and television business for twenty-five years. Along the way he collected an Emmy for producing and directing a magazine segment on the victorious 1986 Mets for WNYC-TV. Prior to the launching of HOME TEAM, he edited many network specials, and developed a stellar reputation at CBS, editing on various series including STREET STORIES with Ed Bradley, EYE TO EYE with Connie Chung, and PUBLIC EYE with Bryant Gumbel, during which he received another Emmy nomination. In 1999 he co-produced a story for National Geographic about his friends, The Flying Neutrinos, street musicians who were homeless by choice, and managed through hard work and a totally original vision to build a raft and sail the Atlantic from New York to Ireland. Currently, HOME TEAM is working on a feature length documentary about this extraordinary family. In 2004 and 2005 Zimet had a hand in the ABC hit EXTREME MAKEOVER.

Stephanie Silber and Victor Zimet have long managed to distill the extraordinary from the seemingly everyday. The Home Team philosophy can be summed up simply: from the the the screen.
