Hollywood CA – March 25, 2005 -- Thunder Mountain Media in association with
BannerCaswell Productions is developing various projects in the television and home
video marketplace. The first project is a reality-type show that features the outdoors,
currently being developed subject to a non-disclosure agreement, which is entertainment
speak for "top secret.”
The first step – with a deadline of May 13th, 2005 – is a nationwide talent search for
Native American Men and Women between the ages of 18 and 50 who love the outdoors
and are comfortable with animals and nature. Most importantly, Thunder Mountain
Media is looking for Native American people that, as they say in Hollywood, "eat up the
camera!" The producers are searching for people who look good, can deliver lines on
camera and have the desire and ability to work hard. Interested applicants should visit
the website ( for more information.
Thunder Mountain Media is a partnership between two leaders of the Native American
community: longtime PBS Executive Producer Frank Blythe (Native American Public
Telecommunications) and veteran economic development and community consultant,
Syd Beane (National American Indian Development Corporation). BannerCaswell
Productions is Chuck Banner and Ben Caswell, television professionals who started
working together over ten years ago while at Bob Banner Associates (Star Search,
Showtime at the Apollo, etc.).
In 2001, Blythe, Beane, Banner and Caswell worked together with actor/singer Floyd
Red Crow Westerman and two-time Grammy Award-winning music producer/singer
Tom Bee to produce XIT: Without Reservation, the 30th Anniversary concert special for
PBS and home video.
Thunder Mountain Media is part of a larger coalition to help create culturally relevant
content for mainstream consumption. The Native Media and Technology Network
(NMTN) has the mission of building media capacity and entertainment job opportunities
in Native American communities.

Native Media and Technology Network – Project Introduction
Native Media and Technology Network (NMTN) is:
A national Native American media coalition working with film, television, radio and
multimedia corporations, programs and small businesses across the country to
build media capacity and entrée’ for Tribes, native media organizations and native
urban community centers in the entertainment industry.
NMTN’s mission is:
To create a national Native Media Intermediary to build media and technology
capacity, employment and business opportunity among American Indian
communities through the development, production and ownership of culturally

March 2000:
Originally developed by Floyd Red Crow Westerman (Eyapaha Institute, Red Crow
Creations), Syd Beane (Center for Community Change, National American Indian
Development Corporation), Paula Starr (Southern California Indian Center) and
Chuck Banner (Bob Banner Associates and BannerCaswell Productions). NMTN’s
pilot project created a job training and employment program and built strong
alliances with every major diversity program in Hollywood including Fox Studios
Diversity Development, Workplace Hollywood and the Walter Kaitz Foundation.
January 2001:
NMTN partnered with American Indian Grammy producer Tom Bee (The SOAR
Corporation) and PBS television executive Frank Blythe (Native American Public
Telecommunications) to produce a 56-minute documentary of legendary 70s
American Indian rock band XIT, which aired nationally on PBS in 2001.
Summer 2003:
BannerCaswell Productions, Southern California Indian Center and SOAR
collaborated on an audio CD and a feature documentary, Urban Pow Wow, by
Intertribal Entertainment and Tribal TANF students at the SCIC’s annual Powwow.
Both projects in national distribution by SOAR records.
