    Samantha Hale and Amanda Taulere Interviews on The Time Machine






    Director Samantha Hale was a guest on The Time Machine to discuss her film "Map The Music". In addition to being a filmmaker; Samantha is a comedic alumna of Second City, granddaughter of The Skipper on Gilligan's Island and therefore genetically diseased to be an actor, and fervent music lover.

    Samantha refers to herself as an accidental filmmaker. The documentary was triggered by the death of her father. It was her love and loss for her Dad along with her love of music that took on her journey around the country to try to explain the power that music has over people. She did this by following some of her favorite artists from concert to concert around the country and through interviews with legions of devoted fans and the incredible artists who inspire them, she tries to uncover the mystery behind the music while struggling with her loss. Artists include many of the core artists that are heard daily on The Time Machine; Imogen Heap, Kate Havnevik, Schuyler Fisk, Zoe Keating, Rachael Yamagata, Cary Brothers, Charlotte Martin and Jim Bianco. The film also features unreleased concert performances and behind the scenes footage with some of the most unique musicians in independent music.

    On the set of NBC's sitcom "News Radio", Phil Hartman urged Amanda in the direction of improvisation and she trained at the prestigious Groundlings Theatre in Los Angeles, where she has brought and trained their fantastic improvisational technique to Maui. The Groundlings technique consists of “pure” improvisation.

    The cast of The Comedy Hui uses no props, sets or costumes in the show and relies completely on the power of pure imagination and suggestions from the audience much like the television show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”. The performance has the cast co-creating 90 minutes of excitement with the audience that keeps you on the edge of your seat and wondering, “How the heck to do they do that?!”. The Comedy Hui's current talented cast include; Rachel Deboer, Chino LaForge, Karen Stavash, Alexis Ziegler, John Ziegler and Justin Michael Banek along with musical director Francois Kie accompanied by John McMullen on drums.
