Bill Oberst Jr. is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for more movie credits in the shortest time than any other actor in the world. He has won a series of acting awards for his macabre, menacing, melancholy characters. He has been seen more than 100-million times just in one role: an on-line stalker in an interactive application for Facebook users. His one-man stage shows (Ray Bradbury, Mark Twain, Jesus of Nazareth, Lewis Grizzard, A Christmas Carol) are highly-sought-after sell-out performances. CBS Television put Bill’s character on its website list of Most Notorious Serial Killers in “Criminal Minds” history. He is engaged by Amazon’s Audible books division as a leading voice-artist reader of audio books. In seemingly sharp contrast to his on-screen persona, is his business acumen and a pre- acting career as a marketing director for a major tourist-attraction ensemble music production show (praised by CNBC, The New York Times, CNN, The Huffington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, Daily Variety, US Airways Magazine, The Saturday Evening Post, The Hollywood Reporter, and many others). The Season 9 episode of the CBS-TV series Criminal Minds, "Blood Relations," in which Bill Oberst Jr. guest starred with Adrienne Barbeau and Tobin Bell, was the evening's most-watched program on TV on its April, 2014 premiere. Probably, he is most widely-known internationally as the face of director Jason Zada's Take This Lollipop, awarded a 2012 Daytime Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the category of "New Approaches-Daytime Entertainment." In cult-following circles (and the ComicCon world) he is likely best-known for his iconic portrayal of our 16th President in the schlock classic “Abraham Lincoln versus Zombies.” His individual award wins include a 2014 Best Actor Award at the Los Angeles Movie Awards, a 2015 Best Actor Award at Chicago Horror Film Festival, a 2015 Best Actor Award at the Biloxi Fear Fete Film Festival, a 2015 Best Actor Award at the Dallas Twisted Tails Film Festival, a 2014 Best Actor Award at San Diego's FANtastic Horror Film Festival, a 2014 Best Actor Award at Housecore Horror Film Festival, a 2104 Best Actor Award at the Tucson Terrorfest, a 2014 Best Actor Award at Los Angeles ZedFest Film Festival, a 2013 Best Actor Award at Pollygrind Film Festival, a 2012 Best Actor Award at Shockfest Film Festival, a 2012 Golden Cobb Award for Best Rising B-Movie Actor, a 2012 Baddest Villain Award at ZedFest Film Festival Los Angeles, a 2013 Monstey Award for Great Historical Monster Moments and a 2015 Best Actor Award at the Ontario Fright Night Theatre Film Festival. Additionally, he has a deep roster of shared awards for many other films. Ron Chaney, the great-grandson of Lon Chaney, presented Oberst with the "Lon Chaney Award for Outstanding Achievement in Independent Horror Films" at the 2014 FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego.
His theatrical reading of Ray Bradbury's novella Pillar of Fire won an Ernest Kearney Platinum Award for its Los Angeles debut and was named "Best Solo Show of Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015" in the "Best of Los Angeles Theater 2015" roundup at Bitter-Lemons. In addition to his role as co-founder, Oberst serves as the Senior Creative Consultant for the company, responsible for creating and implementing strategies to grow the business and brand by developing business relationships and alliances, pursuing corporate opportunities, and overseeing all of the creative processes. Bill also serves as writer or co-writer and director of many of The Company’s stage productions. A professional in the entertainment industry since his first paid public performance in 1971, Gary Green is currently the star of the 2017 television series “Casino Rescue” (produced by Toronto’s Frogwater Media) and author of the 2016-2017 new book “Osceola’s Revenge; The Phenomena of Indian Casinos” as well as the best-selling books Gambling Man and Marketing Donald Trump. His own 1970’s-era record albums on the legendary Folkways Records  label are now part of the Smithsonian Institution. Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism, Gary Green is known in many circles and cross disciplines for his business analytics, emerging technologies, risk intelligence, organizational, financial & operational performance, and legendary marketing excellence. He is a genuine dot-com (Internet 1.0) pioneer; at one point 5% of all e-commerce transactions on the planet used his software and matrix. A former Donald Trump Vice President of marketing, he is one of the most written-about figures in modern casino business circles; having owned, operated, and financed casinos all over the world. He is co-founder of the Gary Green Gaming casino private equity fund and serves on the Board of Directors of the publicly- traded Atlantis Internet Gaming Corporation. Personally represented by Hollywood powerhouse “super-agent” Alan Morrell (CEO of Creative Management Agency (CMA) of Beverly Hills, New York, Toronto and London), Gary Green serves as the public face of the company as well as the primary liaison with artists, the media, and the casino world. The founders picked as their CEO Monica Maciel, who has been a dynamo at the center of entertainment management for more than a quarter of a century. Earning her early industry “chops” under personal guidance from country legends Razzy Bailey and Loretta Lynn, Monica opened her own entertain-ment company, Talent Concepts Inc. booking headliners and lounge acts while managing acts, events, and benefits nationwide. Working with headlining 1980’s rockers Kevin Chalfant (707, The Storm, Journey Experience) and Jimi Jamison (Target, Cobra, Survivor), she created “Music to The Rescue” which was instrumental in getting FEMA help for the area of The Great Flood in Tennessee and Mississippi. Her organizational skills are legendary in the music industry.
creation of a business model… Bill Oberst Jr. conceived Gary Green Productions a full three years before the company formally organized. In a series of Hollywood meetings with longtime friend, Gary Green, Bill envisioned an across-the-board production company that would leverage the two men’s extensive networks and their complimentary skill sets. Oberst and Green first met in the early 1990’s and began their first collabora- tion a short time later co-producing and marketing one of Bill’s award- winning one-man stage shows, Jesus of Nazareth. As the two men moved in different directions -Bill becoming a Hollywood acting icon, and Gary becoming the quintessential casino guru- they lost touch with each other for two decades, until a “catch-up” lunch meeting in Hollywood in 2013. At that meeting Bill Oberst Jr. suggested the partnership in creating a development company. It was Bill who decided the company should be called Gary Green Productions because Gary was an already established brand in entertainment, technology, the casino world, and finance. A final choice of naming the enterprise was held in abeyance until the senior staff came on board to weigh in on possible names. (Accepting their unisonous decision, it was Green himself who unilaterally named the subsidiary record label company: Tenare Records, Inc. - from a Latin idiom meaning “touches the soul”.)
Responsible for the hands-on implementation of Company policies and phiosophies as the direct liaison with artists and productions, is Tom Boshamer  who is best known as the country’s most-used STA (“Shakespeare Tribute Artist”) in posters, online, and television (most recently in the CW Network’s series Supernatural”; the longest-running North American fantasy series and on Penn & Teller’s Showtime series, “Bullshit”). His creation of the whimsical Shakespeare personality “The Bard” has made him a popular character at Renaissance festivals throughout the country. In addition to his acting and modeling gigs, Tom has had a remarkable career working with traditional music luminaries including Bill Monroe, Norman Blake, Jethro Burns, and many more. Tom was an assistant producer of the television series, “Fire on the Mountain”, which aired on The Nashville Net-work, and featured the leading performers in Bluegrass, Old Time, and Appalachian music. This team is cemented by “super-attorney” Buddy Levy whose focus in entertainment has been cemented for decades; he truly is one of the founding fathers of Indian Tribal gaming. He negotiated, and held for 20 years, the first Indian gaming management contract and was one of the guiding forces in bring the landmark 1981 court case that created Indian casinos in America. A member of the Florida Bar’ Associations Entertainment Committee, he is a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, Buddy has been practicing law since 1974 and is licensed in the States of Florida and Texas. He is a General Member of the International Masters of Gaming Law whose members include internationally selected attorneys specializing in an entertainment gaming practice at a high level. He is also General Counsel for the single largest cruise ship onboard magazine publisher.
Other key team members Serving as a talent scout, and Bill-Graham-like music impresario is Tony Cohen, celebrated as the producer/director of the acclaimed documentary “Our Sovereignty Is Not for Sale”. An attorney by trade, he is a skilled improvisational lead guitar player certified in “Music Technology and Recording Engineering” at high-end state of the art Wolford Studio. Patrick Maciel serves as our chief technologist and company archivist (documenting the historic assemblage of talent and implementation of the new paradigms). He has an extensive background in web and internet technologies including several cloud based technologies with a major international corporation. His expertise also incudes post production. He holds multiple copyrights and trademarks, and has published works in What's On magazine (the weekly Las Vegas entertainment magazine).
