iFace ad: MetaHara provides production services for GDW

We had a lovely time on our shoot this month for the iFace product. GDW is a production co. out of Korea. Thomai stepped up and produced, bringing in cast, crew, equipment and finding the perfect location. The client was happy and the managing director, Cat Kim, expressed gratitude for "the best production experience we've had so far". Several people commented on how fun the shoot was and how kind the cast and crew were. I'd say we lived up to the name MetaHara which means "with joy" in Greek.

Here's is a photo from the location:
Stay tuned for a link to the ad!

Director: Music Video, Nothing In Your Pocket

On the set of Nothing In Your Pocket, Music Video

Thomai in L.A.

Since relocating to Los Angeles, Thomai has worked with networks CBS, ABC and NBC, Moving Parts, companies including  Lions Gate & MTV,   agencies such as Ogilvy and Mathers. Her commercial clients range from small business owners to JVC and AM/PM. She has produced and directed several projects with budgets ranging from $3,500 to $1.5M.  Thomai has worked directly with A-list talent: James Cromwell, Neil Patrick Harris, Donald Trump, Aretha Franklin and Prima Ballerina Diana Vishneva, to name a few. Her production company, MetaHara Productions, continues to grow with a feature length film ODD BRODSKY in post, several promo and commercial projects under it’s belt, an award winning short film, and 2 feature length films in development.

Monday, February 27, 2012


Thomai's experience in development, her experience as a writer and director allow her to provide the creative team with the support needed to achieve the best possible product.  Her skills developing,  breaking down scripts, creating schedules and budgets combine with her creative insight, intuition and passion to help bring any collaborative project she's  involved in to fruition. With her production company MetaHara Productions, she currently has 1 feature film in post production and three feature-length films in development. 
Thomai Hatsios is an award-winning director and veteran of film and video production. Her experience directing theater, painting, creating conceptual and installation art, and working in all aspects of film production combine to inform her unique voice. Thomai’s characters are uncommon expressions of femininity and are unusually flawed, surprising the audience with their complexity. Her unorthodox esthetic choices serve to sublimely yet forcefully inform plot and to draw the unsuspecting viewer more deeply into the world she is rendering. Audiences find themselves relating to and caring for characters that they previously wouldn't have believed could exist. Thomai has also directed numerous music videos and documented previously unexplored subjects from her truly inimitable perspective. 

At age 16, Thomai moved from the suburban metro area back to the city she was born in, Detroit, to found her own Avant Garde theater company.  Thomai was thrust into the limelight of Detroit's arts and entertainment establishment.  Her troupe of actors and performers would eventually become the multimedia performance tour de force, Metahara Presents. Early in the evolution of her production company, Thomai  wrote, directed and performed in shows at some of the finest performance venues in Detroit, Chicago, New York City and Toronto.

In 1991 Thomai moved her base of operations to New Orleans, La.   Highlights of her tenure in New Orleans include a live performance that consisted of a cast of 45 that was presented on 3 city blocks in collaboration with NOMA (New Orleans Museum Of Art), multiple performances and installations at the CAC (Contemporary Art Center) a tour of Europe and her trip to Morocco where she co-produced and directed a documentary about Ghnawa musicians which premiered in Peter Gabriel's Real World Music World Tour.   By 1994 Thomai's work, already multi-media, had become more filmic.

Fueled by the desire to learn every aspect of film production, Thomai relocated with her son to Los Angeles.  In 1998 she bought her 1st digi camera and immediately began creating dance films, experimental films and documentary.  After learning to edit her projects in FCP, she became a freelance editor, called on by several  boutique promo and instructional video companies.   Thomai moved to on set production working as a PA, Camera Operator, AD and PM; eventually stepping into her bliss as Director and Producer. She has produced and directed several projects with budgets ranging from $3,500 to $1.5M.  Directing narrative utilizes Thomai's passion, dedication and creative talent as a storyteller to the fullest.  In addition to running her production company, MetaHara, Thomai is currently an enthusiastic member of the development team at AMI, with Mark R. Harris.  Thomai's creative process includes collage (published in 37Days, Skirt Press), painting,  writing poetry, prose and creative essays (The Next Thing, published in What I Wish For You, Skirt Press).  Thomai continues to follow her bliss,   Directing, Writing and Producing feature length films.

GASP -- Reviews

Thee most bad ass review of GASP just came in from Chad Clinton Freeman, "Gasp was sexy, fun and scary; sort of exploitation mixed with horror mixed with drama. "

From Cinematographer Matthew Irving:

"All I can say is: "Wow".  You are incredibly talented.  I thought the film worked on every level, and your over-arching vision was extremely clear and perfectly executed.  This should be a fantastic calling card for your directing abilities--and for everyone else involved.  The performances were nuanced and believable, the cinematography was right on target; the quirky score set the tone flawlessly.  And of course, I really dug the 70's vibe.

I'm very impressed and extremely excited for you."
