Producers

Welcome to Hollywood’s Master Storytellers website.  My name is Nadine Christine Hamdan and I am one of the producers, along with John Culton. We’re glad you’re here.

NADINE CHRISTINE HAMDAN

Nadine Christine, aka Nadine Christine Hamdan is an accomplished comedy writer, producer and entrepreneur who has sold several screenplays for film and currently working for production companies and networks as a writer for television sitcoms. As the creator and producer” The World’s Greatest Unknown Comedian”, one of the largest Internet talent comedy competition’s which launched in fall of 2004 and lasted for 3 seasons, she learned early on about the importance of the internet. She is also the Executive Producer and head of development of the live and broadcast versions of “Hollywood’s Master Storyteller”, also known as HMS. Now in it’s 10th year, HMS is getting bigger and better than ever.

Due to the fact that HMS didn’t have a budget early on, Nadine and her partners had to get on the horn and invite all the major A-Listers to HMS as guests, which include, but not limited too (George Clooney, Drew Barrymore, Oliver Stone and Pierce Brosnan, but who’s bragging) and get butt’s in the theater seats at the Arclight Cinema and then eventually at Mann’s Chinese, where HMS currently resides.  It was also through that time that Nadine learned the importance of marketing and publicity.  From there, in 2007, she gave birth to Euphoric Media Group to integrate a rather large publicity division that represents A-Z listers and a few martians.  In 2008, Nadine and her partners took on the social media platform and began designing large scale websites that would utilize the Internet and a mix of mainstream publicity, coupled with fantastic relationships and built a PR and Marketing company that reaches over 700 million people a year.  And we’re being modest. With her infatuation for the Intertnet and live broadcasts, Nadine is currently working on four simulcast productions, going live in 2012 with the most prestigious guests in Hollywood’s Master Storytellers history, and launching one of the largest live digital distribution deals in Hollywood.

As one of the most connected people in Los Angeles, Nadine is described as an “outlet” that anyone can plug into and reach the Hollywood decision makers at the networks, studio’s and production companies.  Building, branding and creating relationships is what she is all about.  Even if it’s marketing and branding a toothpick, Nadine and her team are on it to make it the most interesting and needed toothpick in the universe (and with advanced animation, the toothpick will dance).

Writing, creating, producing and being globally conscious is what Nadine is passionate about (botox and chocolate as well).

ALWAYS RECYCLE!
